"ISIS and particularly its expanding caliphate used to be a major news story in this country. Defeating the terror army that largely stretched across Syria and Iraq was a major campaign topic in 2016.

So one would think, after the ISIS de facto capital of Raqqa was liberated from the terror group by U.S-backed Syrian and Kurdish forces on Tuesday, that the story would dominate news coverage…."

Thanks for posting this Tango. It has been ignored by the msm in the US.

I did see this in the news. CNN, maybe? It has been broadcast, but not as much as I would have thought.

Yeah, I'm surprised at how little attention the liberation of DAESH's capital city has been getting.

Some direct reporting on this side of the Atlantic, but more comment about the risks posed by people returning from ISIS territory.

No surprise -- Trump is president, and that means the media don't want to give him credit for *anything.*

Funny, I haven't had any trouble finding news about Raqqa. Of course, I listen to NPR.

Funny, I didn't have any trouble finding out about Raqqa being liberated and I watch what's termed "main stream media".

It was on the front page of my newspaper.
