U.S. CENTCOM was forced to shut down its Twitter and YouTube accounts today after they were hacked into by a group calling itself the Cyber Caliphate. There were tweets praising ISIS and threatening American soldiers such as "AMERICAN SOLDIERS. WE ARE COMING. WATCH YOUR BACK. ISIS." The hackers also published the phone numbers and e-mail accounts of high ranking Army officers while videos glorifying ISIS found their way onto the YouTube account.
Coming after a day when the U.S. failed to stand up for freedom with the rest of the world in France, this doesn't inspire confidence. All of this makes us look very unprepared, vulnerable and weak.
