Gen. Carter Ham: ISIS’ Manipulation of Social Media ‘A Very Worrying Trend’
RADDATZ: "And I have to say that last night, when this first came out, I went on Facebook to see if I could find those people that they talked about, very easy to find. The Defense Department has said clean up your social media. I went on again this morning and — and some of those pictures were still public and those names on Facebook accounts showing they’re in the military. I suppose you would say get that off social media, as well?"
HAM: "Yes. The Department of Defense has been very active over the past many years of reminding service members and their families to be very cautious about the information you put on social media. Disabling your geolocation, being very circumspect about the location of the service members for precisely the reason that has now played out. And I worry that this increasing sophistication by these Islamic terrorist organization to manipulate social media to their own ends is a very worrying trend."
