The important thing about tracking IS is to predict their morph into and out of asymmetry.
New fronts of intelligence gathering swing into action as IS starts to feel comfortable by becoming more predictable.

As US citizens start to feel comfort about Assange "imprisonment" in an embassy and Snowden "imprisoned" into Russia territory a false sense of
security provokes voting habits that are uninformed or misguided.
We're walking a swinging tightrope when intelligence can morph into propaganda and political campaigns morph into reality shows.

Of course she should say that. Half of them moved right into her country, thanks to her.

Kurdish militias are overrunning the very last pocket of ISIS. Baghuz Fawqani is falling.

The "State" part of Islamic State is over.

Why? Just because he's stating the obvious? No, someone is stating the truth.

Seems to me, someone can't admit when a woman makes a mistake.

"Trump wants to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria by the end of April, a plan that has alarmed European allies who fear Islamic State would resurface in Syria in the absence of a credible peace plan to end the country's civil war."

Well, if it alarms you...then, by all means, join the ---- fight. We get bitched at for being world police. We get bitched at for leaving. Basically, we get bitched at for doing everyone's dirty work, who then claim they didn't support it...then come out with statements like these proving they support it and just want to sit on the sidelines and bitch.
