Just a thought ... lets not be too harsh on the AFP. Did they actually say
that they did not have a clue where the message originated, or was it
more along the lines of they didn't know who was responsible? My
guess would be for the latter as police are reluctant to 
a) admit that they have no clue whatsoever
b) usually couch an investigation in general terms so as not to make the
case any more difficult for them than it has to be (when people go to
ground etc)
