A trailer for an alleged upcoming video release is being circulated by ISIS supporters. The video is called “Flames of War” and includes—not surprisingly—a lot of flames and war footage. It also includes some night time video of the White House.

@intelwire Yeah, they love claiming footage and pictures of U.S. targets that anyone could have taken.

There’s plenty of stock video available online, so it certainly doesn’t mean anyone from ISIS shot the video. The implied threat is pretty clear though. The video promises a fight and features President Obama saying “American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq.”
@intelwire have they given any indication of millenialist tendencies? ie are they going to whip out a Mahdi like Juhayman al-Otaibi?

Note on vid from earlier: I don't like the distribution vector. Can't tell if the vid is suspect or b/c Twitter suspensions but caveated.
