Istanbul is a popular destination for aspiring jihadists, whether they live in the US or Europe. "It's pretty easy for people to travel to Turkey - to say, 'We're going on a vacation'" says Ronald Sandee, a former analyst with the Dutch military intelligenceintelligence service
"It's a really tense, really loaded situation where if the people in the residence or if one officer had to make a judgment call in a heated situation, things could go very very badly and it could ruin people's lives" he said. "It's just not worth it."
...Because of these issues, a group of developers started work on Tox, which aims to rebuild the functionality of Skype with an emphasis on privacy. "The main thing the Tox team is trying to do, besides provide encryption, is create a tool that requires no central servers whatsoever—not even ones that you would host yourself. It relies on the same technology that BitTorrent uses to provide direct connections between users, so there's no central hub to snoop on or take down."
Former CNN'er Aneesh Rahman put it well: "War zones sharpen edges. They harden souls. They are dark places. Which makes it all the more remarkable that those of us who met Sarmad in Baghdad remember him as such a bright light."
