Obama’s got enough problems as it is. The last thing he needs is have to worry about his various accounts being hacked. But that’s exactly what he got today, courtesy of the Syrian Electronic Army:

The SEA hacked into the @BarackObama Twitter account and into the Barack Obama Facebook page, where it posted links to a graphic video “showing the truth about Syria.”

A boastful SEA retweeted these tweets about its exploits:

MashableEditor’s note: The original title of this post stated that the SEA had hacked into Team Obama’s social media accounts. But according to Mashable, “It appears the SEA did not actually access Obama’s social media accounts, but altered the links in the posts by tampering with the URL shortener service for BarackObama.com.” The title has been changed for clarification. We apologize for the error.
