We perish because we know not… #TLENews
The message is as chilling as its imagery. Anarchy group Anonymous declares war on ISIS.
The videotaped message was read in French: “The anonymous of all the planet have decided to declare war on you terrorists. We will track you down to the last one and will kill you.”
“Anonymous is just a creepy organization. In many ways, I might rather deal with an enemy like ISIS, at least you know what they want,” said Frank Wuco, a former Naval intelligence agent. With 30 years experience in Islamic terrorism he advises the U.S. government, and says Anonymous’ threat is substantial.
“They can mess ISIS up in a number of ways. They can disrupt their operations just by interference or by what we called it in the military, ‘meekening,’ ” said Wuco.
Anonymous warns it will track ISIS online and close its accounts when discovered, but Wuco says it will take much more than that to cripple ISIS, which is formidable on its own.
“ISIS is no slouch. It’s not going to lead to a significant change in the way ISIS does business, and that’s on the ground,” said Wuco.
And what about ISIS’s hack on the social media accounts of Central Command in Tampa?
“Compared to hacking Centcom’s internal Internet protocol, getting into its external Twitter account is child’s play,” said Wuco.
