Bollocks. There are over 2000 domain names containing the word "attack",
including of course attackofthekillertomatoes.com and marsattacks.com,
and also false-hits of greattackle.com et al. Either they want the FBI to
be inundated with every bit of noise in the spectrum or they'll have to
dedicate resources to reviewing and filtering what is thousands of domain
registrations per day.
The FBI can of course do their own DNS searches at any time, or even
subscribe to various resources which advise of all newly registered
