"The Internet is the Che Guevara of the Twenty-first Century", According to Clinton Advisor

The CIA loves social media.

Alec Ross, an adviser to the Secretary of State of USA. UU., Hillary Clinton, pointed out that internet has become the "Che Guevara of the 21st century" by the role played in the revolutions Arab.
In his opinion, dictatorships are now more vulnerable than ever. The power is going into the hands of the people and is partly because there is the possibility of creating mass protests against the Government through social networks like Facebook or Twitter. "If you deleted the hierarchies, which are at the top of these hierarchies are in a dangerous situation." The funny thing of this is the speed of lightning with which everything is happening. "And I think it is entertaining, it will have much destruction," said the Advisor.

Ross highlighted the role that had internet in the removal of Arab dictators, for example Ben Ali, former President of Tunisia. At the same time he claimed that the uprising in Egypt cannot be described as 'Facebook revolution'.
