A few weeks ago U.S. Senator Cory Booker made a plea for the U.S. to use social media against ISIS in the War on Terror. At the time I thought he was talking about using ‘dank memes’ to fight terrorism, but if a recent mission by the United States Air Force is any indication he was actually talking about something quite different. At a breakfast meeting this past Monday in Washington D.C.., Air Force Gen. Hawk Carlisle, head of Air Combat Command, told a recent tale of his soldiers finding some idiot ISIS fighter who posted a selfie to some social media forum, and how within 24-hours that picture led to a bombing that completely flattened that ISIS base. The lesson to be learned here? Posting selfies to social media might get you and your friends bombed into dust.

DefenseTech reports:

Air Force Gen. Hawk Carlisle, head of Air Combat Command, described Monday how airmen at Hurlburt Field, Florida, with the 361st Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Group, recognized a comment on social media and turned that into an airstrike that resulted in three Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) missiles destroying am Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) headquarters building.
“It was a post on social media to bombs on target in less than 24 hours,” Carlisle said. “Incredible work when you think about.”
Carlisle was careful not to share all of the Air Force’s secrets to include the location of the building but this is how he told the story at the recent breakfast meeting in Washington D.C. hosted by the Air Force Association.
“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. And these guys go: ‘We got an in.’ So they do some work, long story short, about 22 hours later through that very building, three [Joint Direct Attack Munitions] take that entire building out.”

What do selfies lead to when you’re an ISIS fighter?

How do we feel about the fact that this terrorist’s selfie led to a USAF bombing of an entire ISIS base?

….So, anyone have this song stuck in their head after reading that story? Because if you do you probably have something to hide and the USAF will FIND YOU:
