    Secret Service 'Aware' of Apparent ISIS Flag Photo in Front of the White House.....

    Well, it was just a matter of time before we would start seeing things like this. Ever since ISIL and their Leader stated they want to see their Flag Flying over the White house. I am surprised something like this didn't happen sooner. The reporter says if Authentic.....might be a clue with Secret Service, the FBI, and DHS all looking into the matter.....huh? What say ye?



    The Secret Service said it is "aware" of a photo that appeared to show an image of an ISIS flag in front of the White House. If authentic, the photo showed a hand holding up an image of a flag for ISIS (also known as ISIL or Islamic State), displayed on a smartphone, on Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House fence. That area, closed off to street traffic, is frequented by thousands of tourists every day.

    "We have an intelligence division whose mission is to assess information that we receive every day for dangerousness or potential threat level," Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told ABC News. "We are aware of the image and will take the necessary and appropriate follow up steps." The Secret Service did not respond to an additional question about whether the tweet was believed to be authentic. The FBI has not yet responded to ABC News' request for comment on the tweet, its suspected origin, or whether it signifies a serious threat to the U.S.....snip~

    I don't see why anybody cares. It's a picture of a cellphone with a picture on it. Stop the presses, start the panic.

    Mornin RA. Well you know ABC of the MS Media isn't going to pass on the story. But I wouldn't worry about it running any 3 day news cycle.


    What will be real interesting.....is when their supporters start passing leaflets around here in the US. Like they are doing in Britain.

    Alright, so for those interested, I ran some tests and:

    1. The cellphone is a white iPhone 4 (couldn't tell if it's the S version).
    2. There are artifacts where there shouldn't be and in areas of the image where shouldn't be (highly unusual if the image isn't doctored)
    3. I looked at images to corroborate the angle at which it was taken (in short, to see what would be seen if a person was standing in that spot) and find it suspicious that the bushes in the WH's law can be seen but not the fense directly in front of it. It's not all that damning, but it essentially tells me the image was taken from inside WH grounds.
    4. The circumstance of it all seems odd and would be very likely to get the person caught even if they had taken it. Just how many people are standing in the middle of the night, holding up a cellphone aimed at the WH with another camera/cellphone aimed at that cellphone? Yeah. If this isn't fake (and I doubt it's real), whomever took it wasn't too bright.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Well they know where it came from.....I wonder why the US Senior Intel Official didn't show ABC the other photo. Would have been nice to see that one.

    Then we could get your expertise on that one to.


    It was tweeted from an apparently pro-ISIS Twitter handle @sunna_rev on Aug. 9. A senior U.S. intelligence official told ABC that use of Twitter is consistent with ISIS practices. The group has shown to be at the forefront of social-media use among terrorist and militant groups, the official said.

    Another photo displayed a note handwritten in Arabic. It read, "Soldiers of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria will pass from here soon," followed by a Koran verse that read, "and Allah is perfecting His Light even though the disbelievers hate (that)." In the image, the note was dated June 20, 2014. It was unclear where the photo was taken, but two American flags appeared over an arched entryway. "We are in your state / We are in your cities / We are in your streets," the tweets read.....snip~

    It is something for law enforcement to keep an eye on, which it is said they are doing.

    I'm not sure where we're going here - this is a reason to nuke Iraq or something? A person with sympathies toward that group expressed an opinion on social media. They have a right to do that. I think that person is crazy and should be watched by law enforcement to see who they are and what they are doing.

    Heya 88 Yep.....and they are doing it in Britain where they can pass out leaflets about their Caliphate. All legal under Freedom of speech. Their people who support their way of life and Sharia Law.

    Like I have mentioned.....wait until they start doing it here in the US. Using US law to have their supporters Rights protected.
