The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), an Al-Qaeda-inspired Sunni militant group, is mocking Michelle Obama and so-called hashtag diplomacy on social media. The jihadists Tweets are also bragging about the capture of Iraqi military vehicles.
On June 10, less than a thousand of ISIS militants in soft-shelled pickup trucks occupied the northern Iraqi city of Mosul with a population of 1.8 million people. The city fell with no apparent resistance as scores of Iraqi troops fled dropping their uniforms and leaving precious US-made hardware behind. The militants celebrated getting US-made Humvees and tanks some of which have since headed to Syria to be used against the government forces and even allegedly captured at least one Black Hawk helicopter.

Yep, a whole truckload of #Iraq army Hummers captured by ISIS and on their way to #Syria: pic.twitter.com/BLqcbhnL52 Aymenn J Al-Tamimi (@ajaltamimi) June 13, 2014 Were aware of reports of some equipmentnamely Humveesand the pictures that have been posted online, Pentagon spokesman Cmdr. Bill Speaks said in an email to Fox News. We are certainly concerned about these reports and are consulting with the Iraqi government to obtain solid confirmation on what assets may have fallen into ISILs hands.

#Humvees_AsPurchased_WithYourTaxDollars Islamists Mock Michelle with: #BringBackOurHumveehttp://t.co/44HN98RCQn pic.twitter.com/4oTmxc2N8N Tom T. (@VRWCTexan) June 18, 2014 Its not the first time the Obama tweet has been hijacked. In May, a viral anti-drone meme campaign took off with photoshopped pictures of the US first lady holding signs such as My husband has killed more young girls than Boko Haram ever could and #Stop drone murder.
#BringBackOurHumvee we miss them, it would be a shame to #drone them. #Iraq#ISISpic.twitter.com/xhTlX5ChUm Caz Nova (@caz_nova) June 19, 2014 Americans are hitting back against ISIS on Twitter, however.
For the first time in my life I'm ashamed of my country.

Is this what hussein meant by hopey changey? It’s gotta sting to be laughed at by the ragheads so openly.

Wow! How has the lamestream “news” media reported this? Or have they?
I wonder where these filthy dirtbags got training on Twitter? I guess there were no police cars to crap on.
Moosehell will soon be wearing a chadoor at this rate.
