Hellfires: The Ultimate Lulz
I wished I had said that, but no it was John Little at Blogs of War discussing the social media boomerang that ISIS is creating.
A rapid stream of ISIS victories, massive amounts of media coverage and millions of breathless tweets have had a powerful combined effect on the group's image. Like LulzSec at it's height they appear to be unstoppable....Speaking of LUTZ.
...So when looking at groups like this it's important to remember that Superpowers don't tweet their way to lulz. They use intelligence, police work, courts and the occasional missile. And Hellfires are the ultimate last lulz.

John is more right that he knows. The stiff above, the former ISIS media wing leader. After his death there was no one to pose his Martyrs smile and add the finger pointy indicating the Oneness of Allah.
Could it be that that his own smartphone was, you know, leaking?
Meh, could be Doc.
