Welcome back everyone American born terrorists and why are all lock key -- he's dead.
But may not be forgotten his legacy of hate and radicalization -- -- Online.
So will -- remain relevant in the world of chair.
We're joined now by Ryan morrow founder of world threats dot com and national security analyst for the Christian action network and -- -- Author of the book Jihad -- good morning to both -- time.
So Ryan let me start with you because immediately when we found out that -- was dead on Friday.
We kept playing video of all of his rants they're seeing on YouTube and all over the Internet.
And it it worried me that maybe He would continue to be effective from the -- your thoughts right.
That's absolutely true his -- continued to be sold in Islamic centers as lot of supermarkets so it's not just the Internet.
His material is everywhere in the last pulled -- I saw.
Showed that 5%.
Of American Muslims express a favorable opinion of -- Qaeda and 14% refuse to answer the question.
So there's still a very strong pool for him to recruit from even though the fact that he's dead but that being said.
His sermons are not going to be as relevant as time goes on because they're not going to be commenting on current events.
And he's not going to be offering words of encouragement to say it is supporters despite the fact that how many blows you've been dealt and that we're still gonna win.
That more and more people continue to go -- listen to him on the Internet.
Certainly in the short term it's going to be -- surge in interest in -- lucky and I wanted to say.
Elect is most important radicalized and works really aren't quite current events.
The one piece that He did that really has reached the most Americans who is called Constance on the path -- you hug.
And that's a very general discussion of why it's obligatory for Muslims to fight in his -- and so it's not really tied to what's happening now it's it's it.
Pretty -- peace and I think it's gonna have a long.
I don't like a manifesto that people can keep keep referring back to if they're looking for guidance and they're still interested in in trying to become radicalized let me ask both of you this.
The heat loss of technology seem to always be behind times especially since the age of the Internet.
And I'm wondering if either one -- you believe that we should have a law.
Against allowing him to even -- on the Internet or to be on YouTube -- I'm not at the point yet where I think that we should do that thing opens up on some bad possibilities.
For the abusing of freedom of speech.
Com but I will say that in terms of doing research having these guys out there saying their beliefs is very good for investigative purposes and and -- what are your thoughts it's.
Well it's it's gonna practical level of regardless of the philosophical point it's pretty -- to control the stuff.
There's been some effort to keep all until the Internet but really it's very easy to find his mercurial almost anywhere you knock off once -- because posted on the other.
Then it's it's just you know.
They're kind of probably better to spend -- resources on something where we have a better chance of.
But -- -- do you think do you think real quickly that in a way if people go to those sites it's a way that our government can.
Can monitor who's actually still looking up to him.
Oh definitely the government rivers has a lot of different ways that -- can monitor what's happening online now you know.
You have to keep in mind that worldwide we're talking about a lot of people -- -- we're gonna check this stuff felt very few of them are going to be threats and so really the challenges figuring out.
Who among his audience is gonna turn out to be a threat and -- and that's a very difficult.
That's all right is He still alive from the grave I guess we'll continue to find out Ryan and JM I think so much for your time this morning.
