Terrorists Using Call of Duty To Plot Attacks

Posted on Tuesday, March 20 @ 08:35:06 Eastern by


It's Friday night, and you and a few pals have teamed up to play Call of Duty together online. In the lobby, you plan out a strategy for attack. Meanwhile, terrorists are doing the exact same thing, except they're plotting against real-world targets.

Or so claims UK Newspaper, The Sun.

The Sun says that terrorists, knowing that phone lines and internet messages can be tapped by authorities, have turned to their PlayStations and Xboxes, namely Call of Duty (although they mention Medal of Honor and Halo, too), to chat and plan out attacks. The Sun continues, claiming that Jihadists could be using Call of Duty as a training sim much like they've used flight simulators in the past.

This all sounds like a load of bollocks, but realistically, if they're using normal COD lingo, it could be easy to hide the fact that they're actually terrorists. 

Fear not, though. The Sun also says that the CIA and other security operatives are already keen to these methods and have been monitoring activity. So, be careful what all you non-terrorist gamers say while in Call of Duty lobbies.

Tell GR: Is there any truth to this? Can you see Call of Duty being used as such a tool for terrorism? Or is this a a tabloid story created to stir the pot?
