Inside the Islamic State - From Open Source with Christopher Lydon

DocSlot-InsideIslamicState.jpg

We’re looking inside the Islamic State: as a phenomenon and as America’s latest enemy in the endless war on terror. Do we know who they are, or how we plan to defeat them? President Obama says they aren’t Islamic and aren’t a state. It’s clear they’re a dangerous mad storm of Arab anger armed, in part, with hand-me-down American weapons. Could this be the coming Caliphate that Dick Cheney warned us against? What if it’s blowback that his Iraq War fired up?

That's Inside The Islamic State - a documentary special on WCQS tonight at 6.
