An American hacker, who calls himself “The Raptor” and claims to be a grandfather waging his own war on terror, is taking credit for a series of takedowns of online forums used by Al Qaeda sympathizers, according to an exclusive report on Fox News.
Referring to himself a patriot acting on behalf of U.S. troops serving overseas, “The Raptor” claims to be behind last month’s attack on Al Qaeda’s main online forum, and a handful of other sites and forums where jihadists gather online to issue threats and exhort one another to acts of terror. The sites went down on March 22, and most remained dark for nearly two weeks. As the websites stayed offline, The Raptor taunted his targets on Twitter recently, daring them to “bring it.”
