I don't know. Some kind of variation of The Hand that heals people instead? Something with the allstate logo on it? Just a random idea I had once.

Below I added a part of an article by the Daily Beast that describes that this indeed was the goal. It is funny that he CD's with the videos also ended up back in America.

"The third and most sensitive program described by Wells was the production of fake al Qaeda propaganda films. He told the Bureau how the videos were made. He was given precise instructions: “We need to make this style of video and we’ve got to use al Qaeda’s footage,” he was told. “We need it to be 10 minutes long, and it needs to be in this file format, and we need to encode it in this manner.”

U.S. marines would take the CD's on patrol and drop them in the chaos when they raided targets. Wells said: “If they’re raiding a house and they’re going to make a mess of it looking for stuff anyway, they’d just drop an odd CD there.”
The CD's were set up to use Real Player, a popular media streaming application which connects to the internet to run. Wells explained how the team embedded a code into the CD's which linked to a Google Analytics account, giving a list of IP addresses where the CD's had been played.

The tracking account had a very restricted circulation list, according to Wells: The data went to him, a senior member of the Bell Pottinger management team, and one of the U.S. military commanders.

Wells explained their intelligence value. “If one is looked at in the middle of Baghdad… you know there’s a hit there,” he said. “If one, 48 hours or a week later shows up in another part of the world, then that’s the more interesting one, and that’s what they’re looking for more, because that gives you a trail.”

The CD's turned up in some interesting places, Wells recalled, including Iran, Syria, and even America."

So does that mean that if I link a McDonald's commercial to you, I'm a McDonald's employee?

Either way, it was a waste of money. We're on the verge of rejecting Globalism completely.

No because people share videos of shit all the time. I've seen them posted on loads of sites, are a bunch of autists trying to be edgy therefore terrorists?

Also, that link is nothing to do with it, that is a way to identify someone that is leaking information by giving everyone a specific piece and seeing what is leaked. That isn't related to this.

I'm afraid the source you got this information from is false.

The entire Hobbit Trilogy cost 623 million.
A spy satellite can cost upwards of half a billion.

ISIS doesn't budget that much for all their videos put together.
I don't think ISIS even has a budget that big.

How are we spending this much for something that is neither a 8 hour slog of special effects nor something that can steal dick pics in orbit?

Government contracting is usually expensive, no matter what.

If you contract out security work, it's probably going to a really high-level tech firm. Everybody at this firm's salary is definitely in the six-figure range. How many people does it take to make some fake videos? Obviously a few actors, and a few directors, people like that. How many programmers does it take to create an ip-tracing program that works on middle eastern computers? The number of people starts adding up. For every person involved in the program, in any way, the government runs a background check. Pay the post office to move the forms around, pay the people working in the department of defense, pay to get the paper printed, etc etc. Little things add up massively.

And then, once the videos are made, how do you get them to iraq? You put them on a top secret transport flight, get a bunch of airtight boxes specially marked to hold classified info, you have to pay the CD production company for secrecy, you pay the Air Force for the gas they use, THEN you pay the six-figure salary tech firm for three years to keep their servers updated and track all the terrorists.

This is part of the reason why military projects usually run over budget massively. A fighter jet is one day late? Ok, well now you have to pay 10,000 people overtime salary for one day. A week late? Things stack up. Some companies would overreport their overtime as well, like they'd work 8 hours and 1 minute and call it 9 hours. That's part of the reason the government requires overtime to be reported to the nearest 5 minutes now, because even a minute of overreporting adds up to millions of dollars over the year.

Fucking what? If you watch a video you're a terrorist? That is the worst logic I've heard all day. It's pretty fucking early though so there's still time to say more shit.

If you watch the video, then fine. But I'm saying if you find MORE people watching the video, then somebody is sharing it. And why would somebody share a terrorist recruitment video?

It's similar to this informant-catching technique: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canary_trap

Basically, if you see material being shared, then the first person you gave it to must be sharing it. I.e. you share a video about "how to become a terrorist", then you are likely a terrorist. Not enough to convict but you can bet the pentagon put these people on very close surveillance afterwards. Make sense?
