Whether you want to believe it or not, ISIS has been a major player using social media in their recruitment tools, and now President Trump is hitting them through cyberspace.
Trump is stepping up his attempts to defeat ISIS with a brand new, independent branch of the military designated to handling cyber warfare and this will not have any association with the NSA.
Sounds like a good idea. Obama never wanted to destroy ISIS. He pulled the troops out of Iraq and allowed ISIS to grow. Time to eradicate ISIS.
The main hope for this new venture is to carry out cyber attacks on the Islamic State at will, resulting in crippling their network, rending them useless and weak. A source spoke on the record under the conditions of anonymity as they were not instructed to give out that information.
This also means there are still leaks in the administration trying to deliver hurtful blows to the Trump administration and it needs to stop.

The goal, they said, is to give U.S. Cyber Command more autonomy, freeing it from any constraints that stem from working alongside the NSA, which is responsible for monitoring and collecting telephone, internet and other intelligence data from around the world – a responsibility that can sometimes clash with military operations against enemy forces.
Making cyber an independent military command will put the fight in digital space on the same footing as more traditional realms of battle on land, in the air, at sea and in space.
The U.S. has long operated quietly in cyberspace, using it to collect information, disrupt enemy networks and aid conventional military missions. But as other nations and foes expand their use of cyberspying and attacks, the U.S. is determined to improve its ability to incorporate cyber operations into its everyday warfighting.
Experts said the command will need time to find its footing.
‘Right now I think it’s inevitable, but it’s on a very slow glide path,’ said Jim Lewis, a cybersecurity expert with the Center for Strategic and International Studies. But, he added, ‘A new entity is not going to be able to duplicate NSA’s capabilities.’
The NSA, for examples, has 300 of the country’s leading mathematicians ‘and a gigantic super computer,’ Lewis said. ‘Things like this are hard to duplicate.’
If this works, it will be a tremendous boost to crippling ISIS. They have become proficient with their online media, creating recruiting videos short videos along with beheadings that have a Hollywood production feel to it.
I like this idea and especially like the idea that it will not be overseen by the NSA. The NSA has done such a good job with the Russian hackers, Chinese hackers and kids in their basement just fooling around with our national security. They don’t need to be involved in military operations! There are too many things being overseen by other departments, and from where I sit, nothing gets done.
