Report: Taliban Using Sophisticated Media Network
The Taliban have created a sophisticated media network to undermine support for the Afghan government, sending threats by text message and spreading the militia's views through songs available as ring tones, according to a report released Thursday. Many of the messages that have been distributed come in the form of songs, religious chants, and poetry that appeal to Afghan nationalism and Islamic pride. Some of the tunes are available as ring tones for phones, and cassettes include songs such as "Let Me Go to Jihad," the report said.

Well now why wouldn't they use the latest technology to get out their message? And there's nothing new about nationalistic or religious songs.
