The standard counterterrorism strategy is based on intelligence: find terrorists, infiltrate, then catch them red-handed with a dud they think is a real thing.

Social Networks dramatically simplify discovery (the first step).

However, instead of creating a conveniently monitored sandbox, the powers that be purge them (deleting domains, closing FB and Twitter accounts) in the name of preventing radicalization.

This kills early detection and closes an excellent counter-propaganda venues.

So sad...
