Obama's Facebook, Twitter PWND by Syrian eHadis

This is funny for a lot of reasons:

President Barack Obama's social media updates were temporarily hijacked Monday due to an apparent exploit in the URL shortener his team uses to promote Organizing for Action, an organization that promotes Obamacare.

Modified OFA links included in Obama's Twitter and Facebook updates, though now corrected, directed visitors to a 24-minute "Syria facing terrorism" video for a short period of time. The Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) has claimed responsibility for the exploit. The virtual army of hackers also said that it had accessed Obama's campaign e-mail accounts.
