Maryland Internet Entrepreneur Claims to Have Hijacked Major Al Qaeda Web Site

Wired News reported that a Maryland internet entrepreneur took over alneda.com, a major al Qaeda web site, and operated it for five days before the original operator alerted the users of the site. Jon Messner, the entrepreneur who took over al Neda, has met with the FBI, but the FBI reportedly "asked him not to disclose what they had discussed".
