WASHINGTON, DC – An outfit calling itself the “Islamic State Hacking Division” claims it has highly personal information about American citizens, and has put that information online.
This spreadsheet is supposed to contain personal, sensitive information on about 1,400 US military personnel and civilian government employees: names, email addresses, phone numbers, and passwords.
This is the second time this year a group claiming ISIS affiliation has bragged about possessing such information.
Meantime, it’s starting to look like ISIS used outlawed chemical weapons last week, specifically mustard gas, against Kurdish Peshmerga forces in northern Iraq.
A senior US official says the attack resulted in wounds consistent with a blister-producing agent and breathing problems associated with mustard gas.
And now there’s really disturbing news that before American hostage Kayla Mueller was killed earlier this year, she was forced to marry ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who repeatedly sexually assaulted her, according to accounts given to US intelligence officials.
Mueller’s family confirmed the information provided by a 14-year-old Yazidi girl who was a hostage along with Mueller, but got away.
Delta Forces killed the man who held her and captured his wife who they turned over to the Kurds for trial.
US officials assure the Mueller family that the wife will be in prison a long time.
Small comfort for a great loss.
