It’s any reporter’s worst nightmare to become bigger than the story they’ve put so much hard work into. That nightmare became a reality for Current TV correspondent Laura Ling in the Spring of 2009 when she and colleague Euna Lee were detained for trespassing and “hostile acts” by the North Korean government for nearly five months. The two women were held with very little contact with their friends and loved ones and eventually sentenced to work in a labor camp until President Bill Clinton and an envoy were able to secure their release.

The World Wide Web could be the perfect tool to radicalize, recruit, and operate terrorist activities. The House Homeland Security subcommittee on Intelligence, Information Sharing and Terrorism Risk Assessment held a hearing today to discuss the possible trade offs between protecting ourselves from an evolving tool of terror while preserving freedom. Internet terrorism must be dealt with before it reaches too far, but is there a point where regulation tramples the American idol of free speech.
