This is disheartening:
Al Qaeda Seeks Tech Geeks to Run Multimedia Wing
It seems Al Qaeda has a media arm called al-Sahab which is now able to produce very slick propaganda films supporting their terrorist war against the West. They have been able to recruit a number of technically sophisticated (and presumably Western-educated) young geeks to amp up the technical quality of their productions.
Now if they could just hire some good special effects people maybe they wouldn't have to actually blow anybody up anymore.
