Terrorist Tools Online

People in East Texas and around the world realize terrorism is still a major threat after learning authorities stopped a creative airline bombing plot. East Texas authorities know the Internet can be a key tool for terrorists looking to make bombs.   

An online search we conducted returned more than one million sites, some listing specific instructions on how to make explosives.

Authorities say it's now easy to find bomb making instructions online, but getting caught means serious consequences.

East Texas detectives are able to access information from the personal computer of anyone accused of using bomb making websites to carry out terrorist acts.
