E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: ASEC CT PGOV PREL PTER RP
SUBJECT: PHILIPPINES: COUNTERING TERRORIST USE OF THE
INTERNET

REF: STATE 82980

1. (SBU) Following consultation with post's Law Enforcement
Working Group (LEWG), post has no objection to S/CT's
proposed "countering terrorist use of the internet" training
program, to be implemented by DS/ATA with FY 2008 regional
NADR funds.

2. (SBU) We suggest that the order of the program's three
parts could be reversed to good advantage, so that the
opening segment envisioned as a "Regional Policy Level
Workshop" would allow senior-level policymakers an
opportunity for buy-in and the establishment of priorities.
Secondly, while there is significant Internet use in the
Philippines, we suggest that the program should also address
cellphone SMS text messaging, which is in far more common use
here than Internet-based E-mail. Lastly, in our view,
shortening the proposed program (from its
presently-envisioned 12 working days) would facilitate
broader participation by higher-level interlocutors with
always-tight schedules.
