Congress is poised to force Facebook and other social media networks to inform on users they believe might be engaged in “online terrorist activity.”
Last week Dianne Feinstein, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee along with the committee’s chairman Richard Burr, introduced the “Requiring Reporting of Online Terrorist Activity Act”.
The proposed law is modeled after an existing law requiring companies to report child pornography.
The bill’s language is wide ranging. It requires social media companies to report “terrorist activities and the unlawful distribution of information relating to explosives” and it will be used for vaguely stated “other purposes.”
Feinstein said in a statement issued on December 8 the “bill doesn’t require companies to take any additional actions to discover terrorist activity, it merely requires them to report such activity to law enforcement when they come across it.”
On December 7 Obama linked the attacks at Fort Hood in 2009, in Chattanooga earlier this year and in San Bernardino to the internet and social media.
“As groups like ISIL [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant] grew stronger amidst the chaos of war in Iraq and then Syria, and as the Internet erases the distance between countries, we see growing effort by terrorists to poison the minds of people like the Boston Marathon bombers and the San Bernardino killers,” Obama said.
