NYTimes: Iraq Insurgents Reaping Wealth as They Advance

In Did You See This?, This Gives me a Pain in My Ass on June 21, 2014 at 6:36 am

“When Qaeda-style insurgents overran the northern city of Mosul, among the war booty they seized were what they claimed were five American-made helicopters.

Noting that they were still nearly new, the group said in a posting on Twitter, “We’ll expect the Americans to honor the warranty and service them for us.”

Behind the image of savagery that the extremists of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria present lies a disciplined organization that employs social media and sophisticated financial strategies.

So let me see if I have this right-
While the NSA spent millions so that it’s analysts could check if their ex’s were sexting their yoga instructors ISIS was gathering it’s troglodyte minions in the sewers of Mesopotamia until Bane led them to a surface rampage?
