The ISIS guys are really a piece of work. Not only do they have a complete audit and annual report prepared in order to help them recruit more jihadists, but apparently they also have quite a knack for social media. In between taking over Iraq, executing heretics, stealing $500 million from a Mosul bank and being a giant sized thorn in Obama’s side, you can now add Twitter trolling to the list of ISIS antics.
From Business Insider:
Patrick Baz, a photo manager for Agence France Presse, spotted a photo being passed around by militants of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) meant to mock First Lady Michelle Obama.
While the original photo showed Michelle with #BringBackOurGirls on a piece of paper to raise awareness for the Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram, ISIS militants photoshopped it to read #BringBackOurHumvee.
Talk about schadenfreude. While certainly beneficial to the militants’ propaganda war, it’s a cruel way to mock the U.S. after they routed the Iraqi military from the country’s second-largest city of Mosul, where ISIS seized American-made weapons, helicopters, and uparmored humvees.
J.M. Berger, an author and researcher on extremism, confirmed the photo had been circulating ever since the fall of Mosul.

There are no words. Is it not enough to make Obama and team look like a bunch of 10 year old girl scouts playing football against Barcelona FC, but these ISIS guys are now tooling on Michelle.
Aside…what ever happened to the girls taken by the Boko Harem? I guess those missing girls are just not trendy or hip enough anymore for POTUS and family.
