Interesting story about ISIS, with insights into their organisation, operations, professionalism and amateurism in unequal measures. The stamped leave request, but unit commanders writing on scavenged scraps of paper says a lot. Ultimately again it shows it to be rather vanilla would-be authoritarian regime.

Their strength, in Syria and the West, was their ability to improvise and to use our own freedoms, rules and media against us.

Even if every ISIS branch and cell is eradicated*, there will be other groups just as resourceful to fill in the vacuum. In other words, this isn't over by a long shot.

* We waited too long to deal with them decisively in Syria, so that cancer has now metastasized. And the longer it takes the world to decide action on the new subsidiaries, the more they will spread and mutate.

Interesting read….a glimpse behind the curtain.

I pity the poor birds and dogs that fed on their poisoned corpses.
