    Default Terrorists use online games like 'Call of Duty' to plot attacks

    Terrorists use online war games like "Call of Duty" to plot and discuss future attacks in private, an investigation by The Sun found.

    Islamic extremists know cops monitor phone calls and emails, and turn to popular PlayStation and Xbox games to ensure their plans remain secret.

    Online games allow players to log on in groups to play against each other and chat in private.

    Once signed in to a "lobby" using a password, plotters then use Bluetooth headsets to speak securely to other users on the same site.

    Definitely, but not too surprising.

    I know that it's off topic, but love the avatar JCVD; Bloodsport is one of my favorite martial arts movies all time.

    Sorry, but I found this funny…

    Once signed in to a "lobby" using a password, plotters put on Bluetooth headsets and speak securely to conspirators on the same site.
    Bluetooth must be more technically advanced over conventional headsets than I thought.

    I'm really not surprised at all. We've joked around now that the government was going to come knocking on our doors for years now just because we talk about some of the most off the wall stuff while playing those games. I'd figured the government would be trying to listen in some how but didn't know what technology they could use to do it but if they've got it and I'm sure they do, well that's exactly how they want it to be.

    Some pretty crazy things are said in these games.

    Haha I'm guilty of it I know but usually mine aren't too foul. I said I'd love to have an RPG to clear out a forrest with, just to see how well they could cut down a small forrest. With that said we pretty much quit using the public party system a while back. Peoeple are just down right ignorant and try to get on your nerves with stupid commentary and it gets old. Plus I got tired of foreigners thinking that telling Americans to "go eat another Big Mac!!!" was some sort of offensive trash talking.
