Last Demo: Is ISIS Unhackable?

LastDemoInIdaho: I would love for DFO to start a thread focusing on this issue -- the blatant use of the internet by ISIS and other terrorists. I find it hard to believe that there isn't some method to invade their websites of origin in some manner, to destroy their ability to send such garbage out. If hackers from China or Russia or the Ukraine can get into the computers of the Pentagon or Sony or Target, why can't our own hackers do the same to ISIS? Hope there are some technically brilliant HBO folks out there to answer this question.

Question: Can anyone explain why we can't hack the ISIS Web sites?
