1600 Pennsylvania Ave Swatting

Hacker Group Threatens to

Bomb White House

4/23/2013 10:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The hacker group that claims responsibility for exposing private financial information about Michelle Obama and many other celebrities has issued an ultimatum to the U.S. Government -- either declare war on North Korea or they will detonate bombs at the White House ... TMZ has learned.

We're told the group -- which claims responsibility for swatting Rihanna, Diddy, Ryan Seacrest, Justin Timberlake, Paris Hilton, Chris Brown, Tom Cruise and others -- contacted authorities through 911 and threatened to detonate 8 devices around the White House perimeter if President Obama does not declare war within 24 hours.
There was a tweet that went out on the Associated Press' twitter account saying, "Two Explosions in the White House and Barack Obama is injured."  The White House quickly discredited this as an "errant tweet."  We're told the hackers are claiming credit for hacking AP's twitter and posting the message.

It appears -- though it has not been confirmed -- that this is yet another case of swatting -- calling in a phony threat.

-For one thing, Barack Obama's the coolest-President to ever reside on Pennsylvania Avenue.

This guy is just straight-up, flat-out COOL.

...Ever see him getting off an airplane?

...Shaking hands with other World Leaders?

Swag's arrived at the White House -

Wouldn't be a bit surprised - not a BIT.

To see President Obama start up a rap career.

Few years down the road.

Michelle and the girls do the lead-in.

Then Barack comes out - and to throw-down.

All the top political cabinet members?

Said, no, don't go in and get Bin Ladin, don't:

"Too risky, too dangerous, slim chance @ success."

-Barack looks around the room, shakes his head.

... goes, oh, we GOIN in !!!

"...WE, we ... we goin' in !!!!"

No one but Barack woulda been cool enough to make the call on that one.

Hilary's looking around like, okay it's YOUR election!

Barack's like damn right, girl (that) it's my election.

Dude's like ice - free throws with no time left and to win March Madness.

I say give him four mo', four mo' and then 4 mo...

This is BS! Just another staged event to pass agendas!! Don't be fooled, this is your very own government doing this. They create a reason to invade own privacy online. Keeping us "safe"...BS
Wake up sheep, ask questions. Why is there always a drill before terror events? 9/11 7/7 london, Sandy Hook, the fertilizer plant, and most recently the boston marathon ALL HAD DRILLS FOR THE EXACT SAME SITUATION ON THE EXACT SAME DAY...not a coincidence.

Anyone who thinks North Korea is going to seriously attack the US needs to get out(side the country) more. It's never gonna happen, but yes, let's continue to stir the pot to make sure that SOMEONE starts this because they're nothing like a bodycount.
