The Department of State is undoubtedly slightly cooler than the nerds in the Treasury or the big dicks in the Department of Justice. In fact, those guys don’t seem to do much of anything all day but slob the knobs of irrelevant foreign delegates, troll ISIS fanatics on Twitter, and watch disgusting European porn. Sorry, Grandex, but that is the fucking dream.

A team of Department of State employees controls a Twitter account with no other purpose than to troll ISIS militants and sympathizers. The account, @ThinkAgain_DOS, is used as the shit-talking arm of the mighty American government. Sure, the people behind this could incinerate you on an Iraqi battlefield from a control room in Nevada, but if we killed every idiot, there would be no morons to embarrass on the internet.

The account is obviously the United States’ attempt to counteract the technologically savvy ISIS militants, yet the tweets are surprisingly direct and sometimes entertaining. Sadly, Twitter has suspended many of the accounts the DOS employees were engaging.



The most entertaining and interesting tweet by far came on Tuesday, as the employees took on a tweet that appeared to show soldiers forcing oral sex upon a woman. Instead, the team did a little digging and announced that the picture was merely a propaganda piece and was a screenshot from a Hungarian porno.



That is just fucking impressive. Bravo.

The @ThinkAgain_DOS squad seems like a pretty cool crew. Whether or not this team makes any difference in the online war of ideology is yet to be seen. We do know one thing, though. Somewhere in the DOS ranks, there is a man who knows his porn. That is a man I have no choice but to respect.
