Operations Security guide favored by ISIS recommends using Apple's iMessage for communications

After last week's terror attack in Paris, there was speculation that ISIS used the Sony Playstation console as an encrypted communications tool. Conflicting reports said that the terrorists employed cellphones and would text messages to each other without bothering to encrypt it.

We do you know who settled in America right because that's pretty much Spain France Portugal England and a whole bunch of others so technically you could say the rest of world killed them off but they're still here living tax free

So technically if Trump wants to clean up America and get rid of immigrants, all you people need to go.. which was my point earlier on.

"Your religion". What is that? They unite dozens of religions, including muslims. Even plenty of local muslims are on the USA's side. Not to mention the millions without a religion... god forbid.

Modern capitalism is just as insane as any religion I've ever seen and has its priests, zealots, dogmas and silly rules.

Damn so true there engineer!! Religion is crazy, besides its all a business!! The preacher gets rich and drives a nice ride, and will the church or their god send money down from the sky when the people of the church loose their house or have no food???

So Apple products are recommended to and used by religious fanatics? That's nothing new. I guess the folks that fanatically worship Apple can now bond with the folks that fanatically worship radical Islam. The two groups can combine their extreme hatred for others who don't share their beliefs and live together in their wonderfully jaded world.

Anyone afraid of Daesh (ISIS) in the west is an idiot and a coward. It's pretty clear after Russian bombing in Syria DECIMATED the bulk of ISIS' military force that the U.S. clearly had not been engaging in a serious air campaign against ISIS at any point. Basically, the Russians flipped on the light switch on the whole proxy war song-and-dance in the middle east. As soon as the U.S. decides to stop supporting "Anti Assad Rebels" (See Also Plain Clothes ISIS fighters): This phony threat will die.

The Russian propaganda is strong in this one. It also explains why Putin coninually cries for intelligence from the USA. Oh wait...

97. engineer-1701d unregistered

To tell you the truth if the USA wanted to you could simply stop decisive battles in all of the tourism in that area they just go in there and who literally level everything with all the most powerful weapons on the planet at our disposal there's nothing that can stop us and no one if we wanted to push comes to shove so remember that all of you spit on your crap about America especially when you start screaming all these hateful things and then beg us to help you after your destroyed in a natural disaster or you don't have any food or you need money or medical aid and she don't have any of that stuff yourself

PA, besides all the stupidity, and immaturity being spewed by a few here. My only gripe is, don't publish the mistake made by terrorists. Allow this animals to continue making mistakes. Therefore making the job of law enforcement a little easier.

iMessage is more secure than BBM? Terorist buy iPhone instead of (cheap) android device?

60. FluffyBled unregistered

ISIS officially makes more than 2M$ a day by oil alone, money is not a problem for them! P.S. Not all android devices are cheap!

99. engineer-1701d unregistered

hahaha haha of God that's so almost as funny as your avatar you must be one of the few people that actually watched that movie and wasted your money do you remove have movie theaters in your country just asking I haven't been to Bangladesh or whatever country you're from been too a lot though, I messaged Security probably one of the funniest things I've heard of yet then why haven't the government being able to give them the okay to use Apple devices for government work cuz I'm pretty sure blackberry. It and Samsung got it but Apple does not not much because they're not good enough that's why the terrorists that have no real money can use them because they're so cheap
