ISIS Targets Air Force Dad and Son on Facebook

“We have a raid on an American pilot account at 9:00 evening Mecca time who is participating in the crusaders’ bombing. Retweet this if you are ready to be part of the raid.”

This message came from an ISIS-linked Twitter account, as translated and reported by Fox News

ISIS is encouraging followers to take social media threats into the real world, wanting to draw attention to and endanger U.S. military members and their families. They are urging their followers to find military service members, flood their social media accounts, and even locate their addresses and “show up [at their homes] and slaughter them," as Fox News reports from an obtained Army intelligence bulletin. 

In late September, ISIS sympathizers found the Facebook account of an Air Force service member who posted pictures of a flight over Iraq when it was being bombed. They then found his son's Facebook account and started flooding the page with negative messages. 

After the Department of Defense was notified, the targeted accounts went black.

A source explained to Fox, “ISIS wanted to find these guys, and inspire someone to go after these guys.” There has been no increased security at military installments, the Army said in a written statement. 

With FBI warnings of possible homeland terrorist attack and ISIS pushing terrorism past the spheres of social media to endanger U.S. military and their families, do you feel we need heightened security in the U.S. and abroad with our stationed military? Share your opinion here! We'd love to know!
