ISIS supporters calling themselves "Cyber Caliphate," who last month hacked into multiple social media accounts, including @CENTCOM, has struck again, this time hacking into Newsweek's and IBTimes' Twitter accounts, specifically threatening Barack and Michelle Obama and their children.
Back in early January when "Cyber Caliphate" hacked into @CENTCOM's Twitter account and YouTube account, they threatened US soldiers, their wives and their families as well as leaking the names, home addresses and telephone numbers of 4-star generals of the US Military and stating ""ISIS is already here, we are in your PCs, in each military base.". (Shown in the third video below this article)
This is also not the first time ISIS and/or supporters have directly threatened Barack Obama, stating "“Know, oh Obama, that we will reach America. Know also that we will cut off your head in the White House and transform America into a Muslim province," in a video obtained by MEMRI, and reported on by Breitbart.
While many would consider these threats nothing more than hyperbolic rhetoric or propaganda, in August 2014, ISIS and/or ISIS supporters provided ample evidence that they or at least those sympathetic to their cause was close enough to the White House to take a cell phone picture of it while tweeting "we are here #America near our #target :) sooooooooooooon," then a second time with the message "we are everywhere." Both had the hashtag #AmessagefromISIStoUS."
Another message that same day, stated ""We are in your states, We are in your cities, We are in your streets, you are our goals everywhere," with a photo taken in Chicago outside the Old Republic Building at 307 N. Michigan Ave.
While Obama, his wife and children are under the protection of the Secret Service, it is noteworthy that his security hasn't been as stringent as it should have with recent reports of people accessing the White House, so these types of threats not only should be taken seriously but also bring home the debate of whether we should be bombing ISIS in multiple other countries or focusing more on preventing them from entering America and hunting down the individuals that are  at the White House doors... literally!
