ISIS leaders have sworn to raise the flag of Allah in the White House and this past weekend, they sent a chilling message via Twitter. A supporter of the al Qaeda spin-off currently rampaging across Iraq flashed the group's insignia from their smart phone while standing in front of the White House and snapped a picture. The pic was then sent out on a Twitter account called "Shaiba Alhamad":
According to an article in the Wall Street Journal from 2013, the @shaiba_alhamad Twitter account claims to be "working with" Andalus Media, the publicity arm of al Qaeda in the Maghreb (AQIM), the terror group's North African franchise.
Shortly after the first tweet, the account then sent what can only be interpreted as a terror threat to the President of the United States:
"soonly in the white house, but you won't see a phone!, you will see a small bomb"
The location from where the picture was taken is directly adjacent to the White House and has been shut-down to traffic since immediately following the 9/11 attacks. It is still open to pedestrian foot traffic and is a populare ohoto stop for tourists all day and night.
