About "ISIS in Collapse"
This week, U.S.-backed forces seized control of Raqqa, the capital of ISIS’ self-proclaimed caliphate. This follows just a few months after ISIS lost operational control of Mosul, and started losing territory hand over fist. As with any organization, ISIS will undoubtedly suffer some setbacks as a result of losing its headquarters, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. Various sources have pointed out that other terrorist groups stand to benefit from ISIS’ loss, that an evolving ISIS poses new threats, and that losing ground makes ISIS more dangerous. Extempers get to decide how the U.S. should respond to a new landscape of terrorism in this week’s release.
Other topics include newsworthy individuals, free speech and media, the GOP budget agreement and tax plan, as well as a sampling of international topics from plague outbreaks to a worse plague: bureaucrats endlessly negotiating minutiae and deadlocking Brexit.
