The face of modern terrorism is decidedly different than the face of terror in the past, not least because of the increasing use of the Internet as a means for facilitating terrorist activities. The modern, technology-savvy terrorist has emerged. The Internet has expanded the terrorists' theater of operation, allowing them full control over their communications through the use of the Developed World's cyberspace infrastructure.
