      This article isn’t necessarily heavy in technical info but I’m assuming computer forensic techniques were performed to find the documents within the porn video.

      I love how the news is making such a big deal about this.  Did they not think these methods are available to anyone who could use Google?  Are they some how surprised they hid them in some pron?  Amazes me sometimes the way they try to blow these things up, you are dealing with a sophisticated group with clear cut goals.

      Are they really making a big deal about it?  The article doesn’t make a big deal about terrorists using steganography, but rather the quality of intelligence they now have after discovering the documents.

      His interrogators were surprised to find that hidden in his underpants were a digital storage device and memory cards

      Utter stupidity… Had he simply kept it in his pocket, they’d of likely NOT looked at it and brushed it off as porn. Had they wanted to TRULY keep it secret, they’d of posted it to something like the Pirate Bay under a random name. They deserve to be caught…

      Perhaps not CNN, but almost every other article I’ve seen in regards to this has said “Al Qaeda Hides Documents in Porn”.

      Or maybe it wasn’t found in some porn, maybe it was found elsewhere and these guys were just using the “found it in this porn video” excuse as their own cover up 😛
