On the fourteenth anniversary of the 9/11 terror plot, which claimed the lives of 2,977 victims, Twitter accounts claiming to be affiliated with ISIS started the #AmericaUnderHacks hashtag, according to reports from the Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium.

Names included in the list are actually from the U.S. House of Representatives, which may call the veracity of the terror plot into question. An edited version of the image is included.

Heavy is reporting that the #AmericaUnderHacks hashtag was started by the "Islamic Cyber Army" account and "Caliphate Hackers." A third account "Islamic State Hacking Division" is reported to have carried out hacking and cyber terror plots in the past -- potential links between the three accounts are unknown.

Caliphate refers to a state of pure Islam by jihadists related to the ISIS terror group. A vast majority of Muslims consider ISIS to be a terror group and would not live in such a state.

The terror group made made statements with regard to its goals at the time.

"We are extracting confidential data and passing on your personal information to the soldiers of the khilafah, who soon with the permission of Allah will strike at your necks in your own lands!"

"Our mission is to eliminate the online presence of Islamic extremist groups such as Islamic State (IS), Al-Qaeda, Al-Nusra, Boko Haram and Al-Shabaab in an effort to stymie their recruitment and limit their ability to organize international terrorist efforts."
