Rational Security, Episode #34: “The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend” Edition

Gen. David Petraeus has a new plan for fighting ISIS. Is it smart or utterly nuts? A new article takes us deep inside the mind and menace of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self-declared “caliph” of the Islamic State.  And a new book takes us deep inside the operation to kill an American Al Qaeda fighter.

Tamara looks at treasured artifacts beyond ISIS’ reach.
