US Finds and Flattens a ISIS HQ Building After ‘Moron’ Shares a Selfie
It appears that a selfie posted by a “moron” ISIS militant may have helped the US Air Force find and flatten an ISIS headquarter building.
Defense Tech reports that at a Air Force Association breakfast meeting in Washington DC on Monday, General Hawk Carlisle, the head of Air Combat Command, shared a story of how a careless social media post directly led to an airstrike against ISIS.
He says that a photograph was spotted on social media by surveillance and reconnaissance airmen at Hurlburt Field in Florida, who relayed the info over to those on the front lines.
“The guys that were working down out of Hurlburt, they’re combing through social media and they see some moron standing at this command. And in some social media, open forum, bragging about the command and control capabilities for Daesh, ISIL,” Carlisle said.
