The Syrian Electronic Army, which is known to back Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has hacked the US Marine Corps' recruiting website. 

In a message, the group says: 

This is a message written by your brothers in the Syrian Army, who have been fighting Al-Qaeda for the last 3 years.

We understand your patriotism and love for your country so please understand our love for ours.

Obama is a traitor who wants to put your lives in danger to rescue Al-Qaeda insurgents.
