"Once took over Mozell and declared caliphate their popularity boomed tens of thousands of people around world. Were learning what Isis was and they were joining the 'cause we started to see tax in many other cities around the world. An Isis was taking responsibility for it. We were starting to see attacks in Belgium Australia Canada and when I say tax I mean people were being killed by this group today. The militant group ISIS posted a series of graphic photos on twitter claiming a massacre of more than seventeen hundred Iraqi soldiers. Tonight the urgent manhunt right now after the city of Brussels wrapped with multiple explosions at the airport and then in the subway at least thirty one killed more than two hundred injured. Two people are dead tonight in Ottawa Canadian soldier and a suspect after a shooting on Parliament Hill Canada's equivalent of Capitol Hill of violent morning that culminated in a shootout inside the ornate building. Lawmakers were caucusing. That sounds so scary. And that's not the streets of Iraq. That's isis shooting up the parliament building in the capital of Canada. The Iraqi military simply have the ability to take back their own city and with isis growing in numbers. All over the world. Something had to be done so in October. Two thousand fourteen the US military initiated Executive Order Operation Inherent Resolve Okay so what is the navy's role inherent resolve which is the name of the Isis M- Anti Isis Coalition Movement. We provide sorties meaning missions off of aircraft carrier the George George Herbert Walker Bush. Sullivan is just Information Intelligence surveillance reconnaissance others or strikes and it depends on what the central commander desires it can be jamming of of some of Isis is co networks and what they're doing It can be again intelligence gathering we are standing by with Tomahawk missiles tens and tens of them which in fact we used on that first night when we started this operation. Jeez Tomahawk missiles. This is serious business and yes. That navy ship was launching these missiles right into Mozell raining down one attack after another taking out isis infrastructure. Some key leaders. Their troops but tens of thousands of people formed Isis. So wasn't easy to stop them with airstrikes alone. Isis continued to take over towns in Iraq and Syria and claimed responsibility for more terrorist attacks around the world and one of these attacks occurred in November of two thousand fifteen and Paris France. Nine Twenty PM. The first indication of the horror being unleashed that night a suicide bomber. Exploding his best outside Francis National Soccer Stadium. There was a second detonation. Another suicide bomb. Both attackers it seems being stopped before they could get in a third attack would blow himself up outside a nearby. Mcdonald's around nine twenty five gunmen with Kalashnikovs type assault weapons targeted diners. In a string of restaurants. Fifteen people were killed. The gunman raced away in a black car. Next the cafe bomb beer was hit five. People were killed at nine thirty six at La Belle. Achey sheer terror. The same Black Car. The crowded terrace sprayed with gunfire witnesses. Say it went on and on. Nineteen people died here. Nine others were critically injured. The epicenter of the attack though would be the Batta Clung a concert venue. The Band Eagles of death metal played gunman rush the hall and opened fire. Those who escaped the survivors called it. A massacre a mass execution eighty nine people were killed and other attacks springing up all over the world to operation inherent resolve needed. More help to battle these terrorists. Here's a clip. From one of the captains on the carrier that was stationed in the Arabian Gulf. Which was launching missiles at Isis? Airstrikes can only do so much and we're very very effective and we're there to support but I think in the end it's going to be a ground fight. They needed more help to stop these terrorists. So some phone calls were made. Hello Jack. Hey how's it going good to hear from you? Thanks so much. Sorry in this one. I can't say our guest's name you'll understand leader but for now. Let's just call him. The commander is kind of a fan boy. Moment for myself to be honest okay. You're going to wonder how I got the Senate view because as you'll hear this is extremely rare interview and I'll explain how I got all that at the end of this episode but I do want you to understand more about who he is. Okay so in two thousand sixteen. I was the mission commander for a combat mission team at US. Cyber Yeah. Us is believed to be the offensive team within the NSA or actually it came out of the NFC. But now it's its own thing. So yeah you got that right to do. We're going to hear a hacking story from someone inside the US. Cyber Command which is a very secret hacking organization within the US government. Which makes this an extremely rare interview. So are you ready for this okay? So let's back up. The commander here wasn't always commander t started out as a regular recruit in the marines but quickly he knew he wanted more so I actually started. I was a force RECON marine. I five years so so I was in. I jumped out a plane. They did the Halo Heyhoe scuba dive all that stuff. Well disguise a beast. I mean my understanding is at Marines training to be a killer. It's very aggressive branch of the military but force. Recon amplifies that immensely. They're the highest trained troops in the Marines and in two thousand twelve. He was deployed to Afghanistan in the sing in Providence. Tough place and WHO's trying to neutralize the Taliban over there doing Hilo raids and other operations and after a few years of that he came back and spent a total of five years as an active force. Recon marine you get older things. Get harder physically so the way to stay in the fight is to cyber the marines. Give you a little wiggle room on where you can choose. Do you WanNa go so he decided to join the Marine Forces Cyber Command but with the switch they knew they needed to give him some training they did they sent me to school for larger cybersecurity. Stuff just basic security plus network plus C H and then they do. They did put us through some more technical training for computer network exploitation camps and cyber attack and defend and eventually you attend the Mission Commander Course for my role was as an officer so at this point. He's an officer from our for cyber. That's short for Marine forces cybercrime. Okay now let me read to you. A paraphrase version of the mission statement for this group Mar for cyber the mission statement is quote to Conduct Full Spectrum Cyberspace Operations Including Conducting Offensive Cyberspace Operations and quo. Listen the Conduct Offensive Cyberspace Operations. I once heard the US government has never admitted to conducting any cyberspace attacks. But look at this. It's right here in the mission statement of Marfo cyber and when I think of the mindset that the marines have and how they're so competitive and Gung Ho and battle hungry I just can't imagine what kind of hackers would come out of this. Everybody says overshoot cyber bullets today. We're going out on patrol. It's funny but it's true and then you know I mean we always try to keep that kind of mindset especially in the Marines. Were Marines are known to be more aggressive in? That was not different in cyber. Our team was the first to do a lot of things. It's your Computer Geek. Or your or your above like your buff guy right like which one is it or is it both yeah. There's a lot of dudes in cyber to be honest but It's it's pretty funny. I mean we. We still do all of that. Same kind of stuff. I know people have some traditions. When you're the first your first. Cyber Mission on the OPS floor. Don't make you wear a flak jacket or a helmet to look goofy when you're sitting in front of the computer because it's your first op. So that's traditions still comes into play in some of the top floors today so there is still that You know military mindset of messing with people and and things like that. I mean it's it's pretty funny. I find it I find it fun. This is how he transformed from being a trained killer to capable hacker and he's on a new mission now to battle the enemy from behind the screen. There were all in uniform. It's sitting in front of computer screens for screams just like the movies. Everybody's in uniform working out things. If you're at you know very sensitive locations and sites you'll be out of uniform and things like that but at Fort Meade you're in uniform all-time the fall of twenty fourteen. I was finishing up all my training and they had just started a team between.

Yes back to isis so isis sometimes it's called still produces a ton media content I mean they have to magazines that are published in ten different languages and these magazines are excellent quality to they're very well done high quality pictures from the front lines an ex early designed they also have a ton of social media accounts post news stories and even act as recruitment tools for new members also have people producing high quality videos filming horrific things and editing them cleaning them up to maximize the impact to the viewer to run all this they must have a whole network to share content between the teams store the videos and pictures and then a bunch of skilled people to run everything so is this media was everything that involved the production of their magazines the videos that everyone saw come out the logos the attack claims all of the social media accounts that they had the websites everything that was associated with that was what was under the umbrella of Isis Media and they had a lot of people I mean we were talking we're talking Cameron we're talking editors we're talking you know linguists for translating into every language across the world so that the could disseminate their message we had you have your own. It shops and finance guys I mean it was a large scale variation and you could see that in like all the videos that came out they were Hollywood quality videos that were hitting CNN and ABC on a daily basis on most and that was that was all isis media so since the US government was already using intelligence perations to keep tabs on Isis. They felt that Isis media was big enough to create a team to just focus on this alone so isis media had been on the scene for about a year ear before that and then in twenty fourteen in the fall it was finally becoming so big that it was its own entity in warranted its own dedicated analysis project production targeting effort and that's where they pulled a few marines together after you civilian and and started a a pretty crack knit team and then I took over the team at the end of the year in Twenty Fourteen Oh wow this very interesting right from force recon marine to mar for cyber and now to the NSA and cyber command to gather as much information as he can on isis media so I says media became his primary focus all day every day him and his team were they're doing everything they could to understand who's behind this we were trying to map out the network so everything behind everything that made isis media tick or you look at a regional news office they have senior editors they have people that do translations they have a web guy that sets up the website they have a guy that configures domain names guy that you know their it staff that keeps the sheriff the shared drives running keeps the email accounts up there chat services so that they can conduct their daily business and you have your field journalists and cameramen and all of those all of that stuff the goal was to simply gather data basically spy on them and collect as much data as they could from this group and they did this for a long time fourteen all the way through to summer of two thousand sixteen was analysis development building out the network understanding how they operated what they did that was I mean it was over we spent a year and a half just understanding the target space and living out a high fidelity network just to give you an idea of where we are in a time line this is still before ices invaded Mozell and declared a caliphate and here already the NSA Cyber Command are tracking them heavily now can you imagine how much data they collected in this time I mean we're talking the say and Cyber Command here and dedicating a whole team to investigate this for two solid years by that time and with those resources I'm sure they must have had everyone's name who is behind isis media and where it was edited who's running the social media accounts what software they're running and I bet that goes so much deeper he didn't say I bet they hacked into all these people to they had access to their phones and laptops and facilities everything together as much data.
