According to Defense Tech, the US Military has been using ISIS' "eagerness to share on social media" as one of the means in obtaining intelligence on enemy targets. Reportedly, less than 24 hours after a selfie was posted bragging about the terrorist organisation's headquarters, three missiles took the building out.
The vignette on how this airstrike came to be offers a broader picture into the intelligence gathering being done by Air Force intelligence specialists back at home and stationed forward. Many observers have questioned how the U.S. is producing targets in Iraq and Syria for coalition fighters and bombers with few boots on the ground. Carlisle offered a window into at least part of the process.
The story also offered a view into the Air Force’s updated intelligence organization.
