    He crawls into a hole and disappears?

    Is that what our foreign policy is reduced to? Hoping that our enemies will act like wusses?

      That informs him someone has been recording all his actions for who knows how long, and that if he continues saying the wrong things life is going to get a lot worse than that.

      It's a shot across the bow.  Most people in that situation will cry uncle, and 'most' is most effective.

        •  If done correctly? Yes. (0+ / 0-)

          You'd have to study the target and find out what makes him tick.  Find out about his family.  Would he want habit x exposed to to family member y or significant other z?  

          Did they view the targets webcam while on site x?  Did the target post anything on a forum of site x?  

          Sure, knowledge of just a website hit might not be enough, but combine that with everything else you know about him and you can find something that'll make him hush up in a hurry.
