There are apparently secret personnel documents being posted via the Twitter account.

Recent tweet from the accounts claim to have hacked Pentagon networks.

Claims to have downloaded personal photos off soldier's computers…

Direct result of threat from Anon maybe? I can't imagine that this would be a priority for IS.....hacking twitter accounts that is.

Possible IS agent within Anon maybe?

I don't believe it. This isn't ISIS directly IMO.

I assume it's some other group, trying to pin this on ISIS, or ISIS hired them.

Probably the same as the ones who are responsible for Sony hacks. Considering the outcry that created, you can bet that any organization that wanted to hire a bunch of hackers would have considered that a success.

Good point about ANON though.

Well seeing as the spook agencies all have back doors into Twitter and other social media, it's not outside the realms of possibility that this is an inside job, in a bid to create a new threat that must be thwarted by throwing more taxpayer money at it, and at the same time proposing new surveillance against everyone. Think that about sums it up.

Hey, maybe they even had some help with the Islamic / Arabic stuff from their buddies at SITE Intelligence!

They have enough computer engineers in their ranks, after all not everyone can be a martyr.

This has just made breaking news on Sky News here in the U.K and they are claiming it isn't the first time this has happened. Can anyone verify this?

I thought the Sony hack was id'd as a former employee. Could be wrong though as it seems to have taken on numerous stories from the attack.

I could see an Anon hacker that was part of the group, also being an extremist in religion....Anon are extremists in their own right, and having one or more that also happen to be Muslim is very feasible to me....thinking maybe these within did not really like the threat of having their own targeted and are now going against Anon to help IS.

Could be someone heeding the call of ISIS and not directly affiliated with them. Remember they called upon all Muslims to carry out attacks and this could be one of those. Not saying it is, just giving an opinion.

Heck, could be a false flag (first)! Now that's out of the way....

If this is truly someone in the IS movement then this rabbit hole goes a lot deeper then anyone imagined.

These are murdering thugs under the gize of Islam, they slaughter innocence to be noticed and feared because they have no other way, there lives are meaningless without a war or killing for the shock value.

These are not computer geeks with the ability to hack anything other then heads off.

I tend to sway to this line of thinking as well, mostly because nothing the super secret spy organizations really surprises me anymore so why not.

That is MINDBLOWING, if ANY of it is true.

The Pentagon, must be wetting themselves right now.

Looks like they got control back, changed the pics but left up the names of the soldiers posted 30 mins ago, curious.

It appears that the one image is actually confidential in nature or is made to look as though it was taken strait from NIPR and SIPR net
