ISIS Threatens US Service Members

Terrorists connected to ISIS released personal information of over 100 military members , urged sympathizers to kill them.

From New York Times

In a new online threat to American military personnel, the Islamic State has called on its members and sympathizers in the United States to kill 100 service members whose names, photos and purported addresses it posted on a website.

The group said that the personnel had participated in efforts to defeat it in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and elsewhere.

Defense Department and F.B.I. officials said that they were aware of the website and were investigating the posting.

It does not appear that the information had been hacked from government servers. One Defense Department official, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said that most of the information could be found in public records, residential address search sites and social media.

The officials said the list appears to be drawn from personnel who have appeared in news articles about airstrikes on the militant group.

Some of the names also appear to be drawn from the Defense Department’s own official reports on the campaign against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL.

Praying for our troops and their families. This is all very concerning.

Military personnel have been warned to clean up their social network sites to prevent this.

What have our leaders allowed to happen in America where our service men and women are threatened at home. We know the threat and who it comes from but are unwilling to take action to eradicate it for fear of offending.
