Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn wants the world to know that Islamic State group terrorists pack up to 80 percent of their computers with perverted images and movies.

The former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency’s new book, “The Field of Fight,” details a profile of Sunni terrorists that is far different than the pious propaganda they spread on social media

“We were facing a despicable foe, one who would rape and pillage women and children, boys and girls, behead for fun, all while watching pornography on their laptops,” the retired general writes of terrorists in Iraq in the mid-2000s, ABC reported Thursday. “In fact, at one point, we determined that 80 percent of the material on the laptops we were capturing was pornography.”

The network was unable to corroborate the “80 percent” figure while speaking to former special operations forces and an ex-intelligence analyst, but his overall claims were confirmed.

“Some of it was really bad, and it was all over the map. Some of it was kids, animals,” a former analyst said.

Jack Murphy, an ex-Special Forces soldier and current editor-in-chief at the news website SOFREP.com, concurred.

“Those guys had all kinds of sick s–,” Mr. Murphy said.

The raid of al Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden’s complex in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in 2011 demonstrated that even senior leadership in terror organizations do not abstain from pornography. Navy SEALs looking for intelligence on the group found a treasure trove of sexually explicit content.

“I think it’s indicative of their hypocrisy of what they’ve said they believe in — their perverted version of their religion,” the former official said told ABC.
