Military members urged to disconnect from social networking sites

Home-grown terror could be one of the reasons why the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are urging military members to log off of social networking sites for good.

“If there are people, if there are cells here gunning for American soldiers or if you have people in our country who are susceptible to being lone wolves,” said Phillip Jones, dean of the College of Security and Intelligence at the Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. “They really do want to see incidents happen in the United States. The message they are getting is that it is a religious duty to kill Americans to kill American soldiers.”

Law enforcement agencies across the board received the alert urging military members to ensure their online social networking accounts do not contain any information that might attract the attention of terrorist groups, specifically ISIL (ISIS) and followers.
