K!ddy-Pr0n and the Oz fires - connect the dots

Did you catch this?
A 39-YEAR-OLD man has been charged with lighting a deadly bushfire as well as possessing child pornography.

The suspect, who cannot be named, was charged at Morwell Magistrates' Court with one count of arson causing death and one count of intentionally lighting a bushfire.
First of all - why can he "not be named?" Another moment to hug your Constitution. The press can be a pain; but it is a life saving pain. Basic freedoms; speech, press, religion, self-defense - they are all like that.

Second; did you connect these dots?
A link between terrorism plots and hardcore child pornography is becoming clear after a string of police raids in Britain and across the Continent, an investigation by The Times has discovered. Images of child abuse have been found during Scotland Yard antiterrorism swoops and in big inquiries in Italy and Spain.

Secret coded messages are being embedded into child pornographic images, and paedophile websites are being exploited as a secure way of passing information between terrorists.
And then this dot.
AUSTRALIA has been singled out as a target for "forest jihad" by a group of Islamic extremists urging Muslims to deliberately light bushfires as a weapon of terror.

US intelligence channels earlier this year identified a website calling on Muslims in Australia, the US, Europe and Russia to "start forest fires", claiming "scholars have justified chopping down and burning the infidels' forests when they do the same to our lands".
...and to add spice - throw this in from Jawa.

All should wait for the official ID - but if this turns out to be the "jihad of the trees" we read about earlier .... ungh.
Let me help you out with some math. Some reports say these fires have killed 181 people. Australia has a population of ~21 million. The USA has a population of ~303 million. In an American scale - the Australians have had 2,612 people killed. That is just a few hundred under what we lost on 911.
