U.S. waging cyber war on Islamic State, commandos active

The United States is waging cyber attacks against Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, and its newly deployed commandos are also carrying out secret missions on the ground, Pentagon leaders said on Monday, in the latest signs of quietly expanding U.S. activity.

U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said the cyber attacks, particularly in Syria, were designed to prevent Islamic State from commanding its forces, and Washington was looking to accelerate the cyber war against the Sunni militant group.

“The methods we’re using are new. Some of them will be surprising,” Carter told a Pentagon news conference.

        I seem to remember two men with binoculars and RPG’s taking out NATO convoys to Afghanistan.
        NATO, with full, real-time satellite imagery, drones and all kinds of aerial ordinance don’t seem to be able to stem the flow of ordinance and supplies to ISIS, and now they tell us that they’re engaging in “cyber war” with them. LOL.

    Cyber war huh? Might as well send in those weepy sailors that the Iranians emasculated.

    The stench of Obama, Kerry and Clinton will be with the US for years.
