ISIS Moron Does A Selfie That Gives Away Location – US Fighter Jets Give Him A “Reply” In The Form Of JDAM Missiles

As technology advances, newer generations are becoming more and more reliant on the internet for communication, entertainment, and information. The saying, “What goes on the internet, stays on the internet,” becomes even more true every day.

People get insurance claims denied to them when they post pictures of themselves having fun at the bar.

Anthony Weiner was exposed when he sent sexually explicit photos via twitter back in 2011. He resigned from the House of Representatives over “Weinergate.” After not learning a lesson the first time, Weiner plunged into hot water again with “Weinergate: The Sequel” for repeating the same behavior in 2013 that earned him a whopping 5% of the vote in the race for New York City Mayor.

Even celebrities are not immune to the consequences of having things they post come back to bite them. Shaquille O’Neal was the center of unwanted attention after posting a selfie picture that made fun of a disabled fan.

In fact, unless you are Lois Lerner, and are able to get away with giving excuses as ridiculous as “The dog ate all of my Emails that you need to pursue a criminal investigation,” you are always risking leaving yourself exposed when you post online.

Enter ISIS. In an effort to soften the image of an organization that beheads, crucifies, and tortures people that do not agree with it, some ISIS members have taken to social media to show, “Hey, we’re not so bad. We’re just like you.” Some have even jokingly participated in internet memes that contain kittens and Nutella. One unidentified ISIS member was posting a picture of himself standing in front of his group’s headquarters, according to the Air Force Times.

Within one day, that command post was annihilated in a precise airstrike involving three Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) guided missiles. The United States Air Force was able to pinpoint the terrorist’s location using elements from the background in the selfie that he posted on his social media account.

But the military is not the only one entity of the government that uses this type of intelligence gathering. According to the CIA’s website,

“Information does not have to be secret to be valuable. Whether in the blogs we browse, the broadcasts we watch, or the specialized journals we read, there is an endless supply of information that contributes to our understanding of the world. The Intelligence Community generally refers to this information as Open Source Intelligence (OSINT). OSINT plays an essential role in giving the national security community as a whole insight and context at a relatively low cost.”

Just as ISIS has been using social media to recruit and promote propaganda, the US military has been aggressively monitoring social media sites, and using evidence obtained in posts and pictures to gather intelligence about the enemy. It is sometimes through this technique that the military is able to capture enemy leaders, conduct raids on enemy compounds, or even where to find a morons in the ranks of ISIS who post their locations and the locations of their headquarters to give them an explosive thank you.
