U.S. CENTCOM Twitter & YouTube Accounts Hacked by Jihadists

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.

At the very minimum, we ought to shut down their Internet access as was done to North Korea following the threats issued before Christmas concerning The Interview. Better still, let’s hack them with the Constitution or the Federalist Papers or videos praising Israel. This can’t go unanswered.
