|On this episode we are joined by BFP contributors James Corbett and Christoph Germann for a discussion of the US Deep State’s role in creating ISIS, its evolution, and the possible end of Al Qaeda. The three of us explore the idea of “moderate” Al Qaeda members speaking out against ISIS, and their attempts to save the dying Al Qaeda brand. We also discuss how ISIS has changed the rules of terrorism by ushering in a new level of violence that is devoid of any real political ideology, touching on the notion that they are merely a place holder for some other new form of jihadi movement yet to emerge, and then finish off the conversation by looking at recent geopolitical developments in Central Asia and how these nations are dealing with the threat that ISIS presents.|
