Russia, China, the US and everyone else who gives a damn need to just turn ISIS into one giant glow-in-the-dark glass mushroom.

Why is it I don't believe this?
1. There will be a call for increased Internet surveillance and control
2. Who does it really benefit?
3. ISIS is here because they were trained by CIA/etc. so of course "they" are here.
Possible alphabet agency of the highest order doing what they need to further push the closing of our society.
This + Charlie Hebdo = trying to add more reasons to lock down the USA.
Wired reported, “The president cited the recent hacks at Target, Home Depot and Sony as primary reasons why Congress should pass the Personal Data Notification and Protection Act. The bill would help unify a multitude of state breach laws that currently exist. Lawmakers have tried for nearly a decade to pass a federal bill to replace the patchwork of state laws, but have repeatedly failed, in part because either the laws didn’t go far enough or went too far.”
So for ten years they’ve wanted to pass more federal laws to replace state laws, but they haven’t been able to — now the Sony hack (which looks like a psyop) and the oh-so-timely CENTCOM hack — and bam — more laws?
Ken Westin, senior security analyst for Tripwire, said much of the data posted on the Twitter account were "posted publicly elsewhere, so the claims that the CyberCaliphate has compromised military and government devices may not be true."
"We view this as little more than a prank," said Army Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman. "No (Pentagon) systems or computers were compromised."

They hacked twitter. They didnt hack Centcom. Now, if TWITTER can launch nuclear missiles, that is a differnt - and terrifying - conversation.

I find that to be rather disturbing, from a strategic standpoint. The fact remains that high ranking and retired Mill personnel lists are in the cold calculated hands of murderer's.. even if this turns out to be an "inside job" or prank..

I actually don't think the terrorists care about having such a list. You'd have an easier time attacking anyone and you'd kill more, so why go through the extra hassle for less results?
