Nevermind that the way the jihadis were communicating - shooting bullets into walls during Call of Duty - was incredibly sophisticated and way beyond what mass surveillance was capable of detecting. You may have been able to catch it with teams of analysts and code breakers doing targeted surveillance, but the only way to narrow down the targeted surveillance was to know that the player was 1) muslim and 2) an immigrant.

There is going to be a shit ton of bycatch from this, and coupled with the anti-copyright legislation, it sure sounds like those in power want to take control of the internet away from the populace.
