Microsoft, Facebook, YouTube & Twitter Announce Anti-Terrorism Alliance

Earlier this week, 4 of the countries largest tech entities announced a joint venture to ultimately crackdown upon the spread of terrorism through their networks. However, considering that the Islamic State has been known to utilize these services for years in the past, what is suddenly spurning these companies into action in June of 2017?

Inside President Obama’s Retaliatory Plan To Hack The Russian Government

Earlier today the Washington Post released an “exclusive report” outlining how President Obama and the US Government developed a secret plan to hack the Government of Russia, in retaliation for Russia’s interference in the US election earlier that year.

US Led Coalition Forces Are Using White Phosphorous in Iraq and Syria

US led coalition forces are using White Phosphorus munition against the Islamic State in both Mosul, Iraq and Raqqa, Syria. The use of these weapons is strictly forbidden in certain circumstances under international law, most notably as an “offensive weapon.” The US maintains they are using it as a “smokescreen” to shield fleeing escaping civilians from IS snipers. Despite this however, there are already reports circulating of civilian causalities, something which is not uncommon whenever these weapons are used.
