"World I'm. George Noory and welcome to coast to coast AM next hour missing. Four one one people who simply vanished David. Politis joins us again perhaps. One of the strangest scariest stories I've ever had on this program so get ready for that Well, not since the Vietnam war. Have I seen protests on college campuses like I'm seeing right now but chaos weeping over some college campuses around the nation, as the ousters of the embattled university of Missouri systems president and chancellor earlier this week were, followed by dozens of other student protests calling for more faculty and staff, heads to roll around the country as many as twenty other. Campuses around the country have marches including Saint John's Syracuse Columbia they're all over the place students are just unhappy and they. Want change, more than twenty aircraft which struck by lasers from the ground on. Wednesday night not good strikes were reported in ten states as well, as in Puerto. Rico and Ontario Canada the. Aircraft flying over much of, the major cities such as New York Los Angeles and Dallas were also, affected pilots reported no injuries But pointing a laser at an aircraft is, a federal crime signed into law just a few years ago Just tonight US forces of. Carry out airstrikes targeting the British. Islam estate militant known as jihadi John is name. Is Mohammed m. Wasi he's a Kuwaiti born. British militant he was the target of the attack in Syria. A worldwide hunt was launched for 'em Wasi after he was seen in videos of beheadings of western hostages you. Might remember that the Pentagon said it was still assessing whether im- Wasi had been killed in the attack and once the jewel of the Middle East Beirut more. Attacks there as a couple suicide bombers killed at least thirty, seven people that number's going up and wounded one hundred Eighty-one people in attacks outside of a residential area near Beirut to the bombers. Blew themselves up in. A busy, street in a southern, suburb which is a stronghold for the Hezbollah movement jury Corsi with us of course she writes for WFAN Dot com and noted author Jerry this thing gets more confusing fighting Hezbollah. Fighting I just don't. Get it, over there what's happening Well I it's difficult to I'll follow with all. The different groups but what is happening is ISIS which is the it's a Sunni group is now claiming responsibility for. The attack and ISIS is also of course the group that's fighting against Assad in Syria and the group that is in Iraq it's it's the, really, violent with the black flag and Islamic group that. We see so much about in the. News and ISIS has signed to exert a claim influence also over the downing as the Russian airplane that went down about two weeks ago on the Sinai so ISIS is a major force were attacking ISIS with the Kurds. In northern Iraq, by, sin jar which is a passageway road, heading over towards? Mosul, a major city in northern Iraq that the Kurds want to. Retake so, you're going to, see, ISIS popping up I think all George throughout the the, region in the Middle East and, being a major focus of US attention as well as Russian attention and trying to combat or contain radical Islamic jihadists in in the Middle East region in the meantime jury Al Qaeda seems to. Have faded away where are they well Al Qaeda's in a sense of the preceding organization to ISIS I mean Al Qaeda ADA has given birth to many different militant. Jihadi groups even in Iraq even in Libya the group that attacked in Ghanzi was the the onstar al-sharia group was radical militant group that was a spin off of Al Qaeda so there are Al Qaeda spinoffs throughout all. The countries in, the Middle East that are now undergoing violence, fighting the jihadis? And, ISIS I think is probably the new name or the new. Militant identification, for jihadis America's more about it In the incoming month and less and. Less about Al Qaeda although Al Qaeda is really the antecedent preceding group to to ISIS and too many of. These other, splinter. Groups all right Jerry thanks for making yourself available for.

Adhering to the mafia strict code of silence has been acquitted of charges that he helped plan a legendary nineteen Seventy-eight heist. Retold the hit. Film the."
