ARMY ISSUES NEW ISIS TERROR ALERT This Time To The Troops

Islamic State Reportedly Targeting Families

When is enough enough? Now the Fear Mongers are trying to clone our troops into paranoid powerless Americans with warnings to troops that the Islamic State is trying to target their family members.

The Army Threat Integration Center warned troops last week that the Islamic State has urged members to try to locate the family members of American servicemen via social media or even the “yellow pages.” That threat however was an after thought, as the assessment warned that Jihadists websites were the most troublesome. SOF researched the threat assessments and found that the same warnings and threats had been issued in Feb 2014 and in many previous warnings. But when have U.S. troops not knows that in fighting an enemy, they must be on guard at home and abroad?
