Terrorist Caught By Canadian Internet Monitoring Software

Parliament Hill Alleged Terror Goal
Parliament Hill and the Montreal subway system were the targets of an alleged terror plot foiled this week with the arrests of three suspects, says a former counterterrorism officer with the RCMP and Canada's spy agency.Michel Juneau-Katsuya said he has learned that at least one of the suspects used Ottawa Public Library computers to communicate with other members of the Ottawa-based cell. Internet messages between the men triggered computer "sniffers" used to monitor electronic signals at Ottawa's Communication's Security Establishment (CSE), the national cryptologic agency, which alerted the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS).
