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

    Secret Service 'Aware' of Apparent ISIS Flag Photo in Front of the White House - ABC News

    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.
    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.

    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)."
    Real or photoshopped?

    Now what?

    My biggest concern with this is that it will be used as an excuse to further limit or infringe on basic privacy rights.

    We don't. That's why we need to find out.

    And then what? An image doesn't constitute a material danger
