ISIS member posts selfie; Air Force sends response

Postby NAB » Fri Jun 05, 2015 3:40 pm

I read this story today and lol'd. Some member of ISIS posted some bragging selfies from Syria and in less than a day the Air Force destroyed their compound. Hilarious.

What a prime example of the whole First World v. Third World Problem thing.

Westerner: "Shit I shouldn't have posted that video of me screaming ethnic group member over and over again. Now I've lost my scholarship and getting work will be harder."

No, f**k you NSA, and thank you members of the Air Force at Hurlburt Field (Special Forces base). They didn't have to collect the information of every citizen in the U.S. to do their job.


the article wrote:US Air Force Gen. Hawk Carlisle, head of Air Combat Command, explained at an Air Force Association breakfast on Monday how a group of airmen stationed at Hurlburt Field, Florida, saw a photo on social media of an Islamic State militant at his command post. Less than a day later, the Air Force claim, they destroyed the Islamic State headquarters building in the photo.

“The guys that were working down out of Hurlburt, they’re combing through social media and they see some moron standing at this command,” General Carlisle said. “And in some social media, open forum, bragging about the command and control capabilities for Daesh, ISIL. And these guys go: ‘We got an in.’ So they do some work, long story short, about 22 hours later through that very building, three [Joint Direct Attack Munitions] take that entire building out.”

that's tactically a cool move, but strategically don't you want them to post a few more pictures from a few more compounds before taking them out all at once?
Sigmund Freud defined four parts of a psyche; the id, the ego, the superego and the stratego. The Stratego being the highest form of morality and scientific thinking.

I always wondered why twitter can't just pull this info. Whenever I tweet it just pulls my closest location, I would think they could geolocate some of those posts pretty easily but I guess not.

No again... Thank you NSA -

"The NSA tracks the locations of hundreds of millions of cellphones per day, allowing them to map people's movements and relationships in detail.[55]It reportedly has access to all communications made via Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Yahoo, YouTube, AOL, Skype, Apple and Paltalk,[56] and collects hundreds of millions of contact lists from personal email and instant messaging accounts each year."
