Battlefield 2 controversy[edit]

In 2006 a fan of the video game Battlefield 2, referring to himself as "SonicJihad" after Paris' album, posted a montage of clips from the game, edited with audio excerpts from the movie Team America: World Police and other sources. The video was viewed with alarm by members of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which held an open hearing on 4 May 2006 entitled "Terrorist Use of the Internet". News reports suggested that the video was an example of recruitment efforts by al Qaeda and other groups to recruit young people.[5]
