U.S Military Command Twitter Account Hacked


The official Twitter account for U.S. Central Command, or CENTCOM, appears to have been hacked by someone claiming to be affiliated with Islamic State militants (also known as ISIS or ISIL).

Starting at around 12:30 p.m. Eastern time, CENTCOM’s Twitter profile picture and cover photo were changed to a black background displaying the words “CyberCaliphate” and “i love you isis” in white letters.

The hackers posted a series of menacing tweets with messages like “AMERICAN SOLDIERS, WE ARE COMING, WATCH YOUR BACK” and “You’ll see no mercy infidels. ISIS is already here, we are in your PCs, in each military base. With Allah’s permission we are in CENTCOM now. We won’t stop! We know everything about your wives and children. U.S. Soldiers! We’re watching you!”

A spokesperson for CENTCOM confirmed that both the agency’s Twitter and YouTube accounts had been compromised.

“We are taking appropriate measures to address the matter,” CENTCOM said. “We have no further information to provide at this time.”

The hack took place as President Obama prepared for speech on the issue of cybersecurity.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest urged reporters to note the “significance difference between what is a large data breach and the hacking of a Twitter account,” but said that the hack “is something that we are obviously looking into and something that we take seriously.”

    We all know that our Governments will not do anything about this disease known as Islam. So far, Governments have proven to be the cause of this problem.
    It’s far past time for all Patriotic people of all countries to stop being apologetic to anyone of any religion, Especially Islam.
    Muslims bitch none-stop about anyone and everyone that doesn’t agree with them (this is their strategy to overcome the people and Governments) and it’s also far past time to tell these people to shut up or we will have to shut them up!
    We can no longer think for one second there are good Muslims and bad Muslims or, moderate Muslims and radical Muslims. All Muslims are Islamic and they are automatically radical because, they all obey the dictates of their Qur’an.

    Their unholy Qur’an that has 109 dictates of hate and violence on anyone that is not Islam.

    The Muslim/Islamic people are automatically a threat to anyone that is not Islamic.
    They are ALL hell bent on taking over the entire world. All non Muslims must wake-up and understand this and be prepared to either submit to Islam or Fight.
    And for all those who are foolish enough to have Muslim friends and say they are nice and good people, that is false. That nice/good Muslim friend will change if/when their numbers grow large enough to overwhelm any oppositions to their goals.
    And if you do summit to them, you are nothing more than a Coward.

    All Muslims move to countries to dominate it and take it over. Not one single Muslim assimilates to another countries culture or laws. The facts are; if you’re Muslim/Islam, you are Evil. Here’s proof for those Islamic apologists.

    Also, links with proof is unnecessary since all the proof of this Evil is in the news everywhere, all the time as well as in their own Qur’an and their actions.
    Just read through the information just on this one website;

    Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary
    “We can’t change the Koran, we can’t change the sayings of the Prophet, which include insulting the Prophet and the consequences,”
    he told Shapiro.
    “But you can change your laws.” He also warned that if the West doesn’t change its laws to suit Muslims, there will be a “blood bath.”

    The so-called religion of peace from the mouth of Anjem Choudary.

    Using the term, “Religion of Peace” is the normal deceit of Islamist.

    My post here is Not politically correct but rather “Correct”.
    Politically correct is simply another tool by the Governments to make people bow down and apologies.

    Here are some quotes that should convince all the people of the world that Barry is NOT a Christian. Plus; these few quotes from Barry should be enough for anyone to realize the threat (from within) of the American Citizens.

    #1 “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”
    #11 “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”
    #13 “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”
    #20 “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”

    News flash; Islam is Not and has never been a part of America at least not until the 20th century!!!!!! Plus, that #20 quote is an oxymoron anyway because; Islam is not and has never been a part of any country since all Islamist separate themselves completely from the culture and laws of all countries they move to (invade).

    In fact, the only way to restore America’s Republic will be to deport All Islamic people and ban Islam completely from America.
    If these quotes weren’t flat-out blatant lies and dangerous, they might be funny.

    Proud, “Not to be Muslim/Islamist” or an Apologist.

    Islam MUST be STOPPED!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jan, please have someone explain why CENTCOM even HAS a twitter account. Are they so stupid that they think they will win the hearts of our enemies? It is liberal insanity at its worst and it MUST be stopped.

    Government doesn’t want to oppose Islam because Islam would give them what they want- ultimate power over everyone. Islam is all about power. Their leaders rarely practice what they preach

    This is what all non Islamist of All Countries need to do, AND MORE!
