The terrorist group ISIS is really good at social media. Even though every major social network has policies against posting terrorist messages, ISIS still manages to spread its message and recruit new followers.
However, like any person or group using social media, it just takes one stupid post to cause problems. I constantly tell you to watch out what you say and post on social media because it might come back to haunt you. ISIS just learned that message in a big way (not that I mind if it turns out to be a slow learner).
It started when a no-so-bright ISIS terrorist decided to post a selfie in front of an ISIS headquarters building in the Middle East. He then did a little bragging about what the building was used for.
Half a world away, Air Force personnel with the 361st Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Group out of Hurlburt Field, Florida, spotted the photo. The Air Force won't give all the details of how they tracked the photo location, but that doesn't change what happened next.
