ISIS “Hackers” May Get A Dose Of Military “Carriers”

posted on April 30, 2015

Using the unintentionally ironic name “Islamic State Hacking Division,” ISIS released a hit list of 100 U.S. troops “so that our brothers residing in America can deal with you.” ISIS claimed to have hacked U.S. Central Command to obtain their personal data, and urged American ISIS fighters to kill the troops’ families.

In response, the U.S. Army Reserve 1016th Quartermaster Company reached out to E4 Tactical Solutions of Pocatello, Idaho, for help. E4 provided a “free, enhanced concealed-carry class for military personnel and their families.” E4’s Nick Edwards said, “When we heard about the threat to our families, money didn’t matter. We are a veteran family.” (Breitbart News, 4/28/15)

Kudos to the Edwards family (E4) for stepping up. Thanks also to the leadership of the 1016th for recognizing that Second Amendment rights mitigate lone-wolf threats—even to the world’s mightiest military.
