SAN FRANCISCO — Facebook has taken down a page used by the Islamist guerrillas of the Pakistani Taliban to recruit new fighters, a spokesman for the US-based social network site told AFP on Wednesday.

Earlier, the US-based SITE Intelligence Group said the Umar Media TTP page used Facebook as "a recruitment" tool.

That'll stop them recruiting illiterate trailer trash. We will see a massive decrease in Islamic suicide bombers called Billy-Bob, Terry-Anne and all the other inbred names rednecks seem to have. In fact, just as I was clicking the "like" button on the recruitment page the Feds came around for a "little chat" about my "new friends".

Obviously a joke page.

And the Pak Taliban is probably trolling the reporters.

Why remove it? Seems exactly what CALEA is for. I guess they don't qualify as a telecommunications company.
