The Islamic State is specifically targeting the U.S. Army, putting out a list of 700 soldiers the terror army wants it followers to kill.”
United Cyber Caliphate (UCC), the Islamic State’s 3-month-old hacking consortium, has posted a number of such lists. Analysts say most names appear to be publicly available and randomly chosen as opposed to UCC actually hacking into a website and stealing the information.
But in the July 25 posting by the Islamic State — also known as ISIL, ISIS or Daesh — a Pentagon official told The Washington Times analysts have not yet found an open source for the Army “kill list.” The possibility is that one or more government sites were hacked, the source said.
The Islamic State’s U.S. Army list begins with the headline, “We want them #dead. #Revenge for Muslims. kill the dogs.”
The Times reviewed the list. The soldiers are stationed at a number of different bases, including Fort Riley, Kansas, Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and Fort Belvoir outside Washington, D.C. The list includes their names, addresses, phone numbers and official email addresses.
