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!
