Our intrepid blog editor, Jerry Gordon, has been posting about and monitoring this issue for some time, as well as communicating with key Members of Congress about the problem.
Senator Lieberman, Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, has conducted hearings on this issue. He brought pressure on Google/YouTube to ban the posting of videos that show terrorist actions, such as attacks on American troops.
That resistance and pressure to get rid of terrorist training videos on YouTube is working.
Recently our talented colleague Joseph Shahda came across a chat room thread below on the terrorist website “Ekhlaas.”
The reaction from Senator Lieberman’s staff can be summed up in one word -- “wonderful.”
Resistance to radical Islam works.
Here is Joseph Shahda’s translation of Ekhlaas terrorist forum threads http://ek-ls.org/forum/showthread.php?t=158524

Dear Brothers: Invade, Invade YouTube. Most of special and martyrdom operation have been removed.
In the name of Allah the most merciful the most compassionate
Beloved brothers, we beg you to invade YouTube because most of the Jihadi sections have been removed and in particular the martyrdom ones. I did not find the operation of Khatib Fatima. Therefore experts, invade, invade. Allah blesses you.

I post one movie a day on YouTube and under dozens of different names. After a month one or two names are removed but I keep the work using the other names

Elevate this subject ( *** he is asking that this thread he wrote will be put in a more prominent place on Ekhlaas terrorist forum so more members will see it and participate in it)

Thanks Allah who gave us this tool to speak the truth in their sites and no matter how many names they remove, eliminate, and ban we will not give up and they will get rid of us until we go to the battlefields and then our brothers after us will take the task.”
