An anonymous ISIS representative from the terror group’s Hacking Division relayed a strong warning to the United States and our soldiers at home. Speaking to Oliver Darcy, a reporter from TheBlaze, the pro-Islamic State hacker relayed the latest message using a smartphone application KiK.
The warning started of by informing us that we are being spied on. “Just like they spy on Muslims, we are spying on them, watching their employees, watching their soldiers, recording their movements and taking their location information and passing it on to the soldiers of the Islamic state,”
The conversation shifted to what they are doing to what they are planning.
“The brothers don’t need to attack them in military bases or secured buildings. They can now turn up in their houses. In their homes. This is war, what did you expect? You think you can bomb the Islamic state and we don’t do nothing back? Soon, very soon you will see.”
After the vague threat, the reported asked what the terrorist meant by soon? He responded with a chilling reply.
“You will see when US military and government personnel start getting beheaded in their homes.”
It is clear that ISIS is planning attacks in the homeland, but are we prepared for the attacks? Different military officials and reporters were arguing if the hacking division of the terrorist group could even pull off such a hack? Yes!
A spreadsheet was published online on Wednesday that exposed the details of over 1,400 individuals, most of whom are US Military and government personnel. The terrorist group then urged for “lone wolf” attacks.
This is a different kind of war we are facing. In December, the Chinese are suspected to hacking the personnel management computer system and potentially stole 4 million current and former federal employees personal data. Is that information for sale?
America is being tested every single minute in the cyber world. Something we have been working on protecting ourselves against for quite some time. But this is different. Obama’s past attitude towards ISIS needs to change.
Last year while on vacation, Obama interrupted his time off by speaking about the first beheading of American journalist James Foley, and then left immediately to go play golf. Again, this story breaks about ISIS stealing information and wanting to attack in the homes of American soldiers, but where is Obama? He is on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard again.
Stealing information to give to terrorists so they can attack and behead soldiers inside their own homes is terrifying. This is America though, and terrorists choosing to attack military in their homes forgot about one thing. If that soldier was willing to travel across the world to protect his or her family, imagine what that soldier will do to protect his or her family in their own home.
