Earlier this year, Clinton Watts described ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham) as the most dangerous terrorist group in the world, bar none. ISIS then went to capture key cities in Iraq and establish what it calls a caliphate using the name Islamic State (or IS). Where is IS headed? Will it continue to destabilize the region or will it implode? Will it or the foreign fighters gathered in Syria and Iraq target the West? On hand to discuss these issues is Clint Watts, an FPRI Senior Fellow and President of Miburo Solutions, Inc. He served as a U.S. Army infantry officer, a FBI Special Agent on a Joint Terrorism Task Force, and as the Executive Officer of the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point. He regularly writes for the FPRI blog Geopoliticus and is editor of SelectedWisdom.com
