CENTCOM Social Media Accounts Hacked by Apparent ISIS Supporters

Embarrassing

A major embarrassment for the Pentagon today, as apparent ISIS supporters took over the YouTube and Twitter accounts of CENTCOM.

A group describing themselves as the “CyberCaliphate” apparently gained control of the official Twitter and YouTube pages of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) on Monday and began posting messages supportive of the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS).

The hack occurred at the same time as President Barack Obama was giving a speech on cybersecurity at the offices of the Federal Trade Commission in Washington, D.C.

On Twitter, the group posted a message that declared “Pentagon networks hacked” where they indicated they broke into military “networks and personal devices.” In the message the “CyberCaliphate” identified themselves as being “under the auspices of ISIS.” They also included links to what they described as leaked military files. They then began posting screenshots they described as “China scenarios.”

The @CENTCOM accounts on Twitter and YouTube are now suspended.

George Zimmerman arrest report released

According to an arrest report released Monday by Lake Mary police, the incident happened on Jan. 5. Officers on patrol that night near Zimmerman’s parents’ home heard glass break, and then saw a vehicle drive away from the home without its headlights turned on.

After officers stopped the vehicle, they said the driver told them Zimmerman had just thrown a glass wine bottle at her, broke her cell phone and made threatening comments.

The unidentified woman told police she had been living with Zimmerman for the last few months, and they had been in an intimate relationship. Police said the woman added she did not wish to be involved in their investigation, and stated she was only Zimmerman’s roommate.

Police said they found the broken wine bottle in the driveway of the home, and made multiple attempts to contact Zimmerman at the residence and by phone.

It wasn’t until four days later, on Friday, that police successfully made contact with Zimmerman, who agreed to speak with officers while his attorney, Don West, listened in over the phone.

I’ve got a tile guy. I’ve got a dentist. I’ve got a floor guy. I even have a car guy.

But a Centcom guy? That’s a new one. Chuckles delusions seem to be getting worse by the day.

Or did someone manage to convince him that he works at Centcom even though they’re an outside contractor whose sole job is washing floors?

HIstory channel had a show on yesterday hosted by Billy Ray Cyrus. One segment featured the Snake religion guys in West Virginia. They were interviewed and claimed “religious liberty” loud and clear.

One of them had a sister that died as a result of a snake bite during one of the “services”.

Non-snarky comment: I’m really beginning to wonder how much of CCJ’s output is basically untreated mental illness on display.

I’m being completely honest here. He has a guy in Centcom? Even someone as off the rails as Glenn Beck doesn’t say that kind of stuff.

This kind of stuff worries me, when you combine it with his gun ownership and penchant for stalking/doxxing people.

He’ll probably just use the gun on himself when he realizes that he’s a moron, and his huge ego collapses. I am a bit concerned for his wife if she actually exists.
