Google Hosting al Qaeda Blog

Blogfather Dr. Rusty Shackleford at The Jawa Report noticed that al Qaeda in Iraq had set up a propaganda site using Google's Blogger. Being a concerned citizen, Rusty immediately sent Google an email to let them know that terrorists were using their free blog hosting service.

Here's Google's reply:
Thank you for your note. Blogger is a provider of content creation tools, not a mediator of that content. We allow our users to create blogs, but we don't make any claims about the content of these pages. In cases where contact information for the author is listed on the page, we recommend you working directly with this person to have this information removed or changed.
Google's corporate motto is: "Don't be evil." Apparently, committing treason by facilitating the work of 14th century head-loppers isn't considered "evil" by the honchos are Google.

It would be a shame if someone were to notify the FBI that Google is providing service to an organization listed by the State Department as an "FTO," or Foreign Terrorist Organization. It's a crime for Americans to do that.
