"Let me continue to move onto the target. I mean the analysts. Get to know these guys down to such detail. They can anticipate what these guys are going to do before they actually do it in the technical in the technical room. Whoa this kind of trips me out. I mean this kind of highlights. The power of would insane. Us Cyber Command has right like they can infiltrate someone's life so much that the understand their secret question to all the counts that they've ever set up. That's some pretty deep burrowing into someone's network or even their mind and after that the task force continued to walk through their objectives hitting target after target taking things down and they had a lot of different types of targets. An interesting to me are the financial accounts. The commander said these. Were not the focus of the operation. But I'M GONNA assume that these did exist 'em they ran into them sometimes like you're not the FBI. We seize funds and then hold it but if you get locked out of your pay pal account and there's a thousand dollars in there that money is essentially gone you're not gonna be able to get it back and this wouldn't be a temporary lock. Because if the pay pal address was linked to an email and email gets taken over then you can change backup passwords and recovery passwords and Peop- passwords and everything so that there's no way to get back into that pay pal account ever but besides that Isis media had some crypto currencies. But with this you could just delete the private keys to those worlds and you're never getting back in there. Essentially destroying whatever crypto currency. They had there were. There was a lot of deleting going on so if they were in there. They're gone. But yeah if you could delete the private keys for I mean if you if you deleted like the private keys where they're storing this stuff on on a virtual server needs elite private keys of the virtual server. They're not getting back so it sounds like some money was lost during all of this and at this point they have successfully accomplished all of their primary objectives for this mission. We did it in about ten minutes that we got all of our key nodes and targets down in the first ten minutes and we had control and we knew at that point that they couldn't stop us and we stayed on for the next two four hours going through the rest of the target list but at that point in time we could take our time and and we knew that they couldn't take it back from us so they were totally postponed after ten minutes so we did have a brief like five moment of we got we got into all of the the main core places we needed to go to high five and then it was. Hey we still got to keep moving through the rest of the targets so after our brief moment of happiness we stayed on and kept going and going and going and going. We found more targets more and more more domains more servers. More parts of network. More files everything that we could we could find. And if it was within the approved plan that that we had approved or like are left and right lateral limits. Then we had a fax and if it wasn't we wrote it down catalogued it and then put it on the target list for the next day and so we worked until we knew that they were coming back and we kinda stopped and then related. Support yourself in isis media's shoes for a second here imagine you just got knocked out big time with hacks like you've never seen before all your servers are off lying. All your accounts were locked out like everything's just gone. What do you do right like you? Don't just say Oh. Well that's that let's be fine. No you work on trying to restore it. I mean that's what the. It team is there for right. They're not just like fired immediately. They're like called in to come help right. Now let's get everything stood back up so immediately the. It team started trying to stand up. Servers again and rebuild their websites and relaunched their email applications because they couldn't even get to emails anymore and they're rebuilding Like file servers and then having to reissue new accounts for everyone there. It's kind of like a building an entire network from scratch all over again or trying to restore from backups. And so while this was effective right away they did see is coming back online slowly and with a lot of trouble so this made some people wonder whether or not operation going symphony was successor. Not since Isis came back online just after you know. I'm obviously biased thing but I think it was very effective. He can't get into the specifics. About how effective this was. But if we step back and look at what public information we do know we see that Isis was very chatty on twitter before operation going symphony but that number of tweets drastically got reduced right after operation. Going symphony win into effect. If you don't have a file sharing server to pass the photos from from the front battlefield lines back to the middle mid level office back to the high level office. So they can edit the photos and use them in the video or from a field video of battle where they're isis is winning getting video back to somebody at another location to edit it to then you know upload it to then put it into a a a photo shop editor and make it into a sexy video if all that takes more time or you break that chain and at any point it's GonNa your whole production cycle longer and start missing deadlines you know. Your brand isn't as good nobody. Nobody likes a news outlet that has bad logo is bad videos and delays and releases. So when you impose that on them it erodes what Isis media was seeking to beat and people didn't like it as much and they didn't want to do attacks or go fight for them in Syria and one other thing that you would notice if you were kind of following the space at the time that after this initial attack from og only forty percent of the Isis websites came back online afterwards. Those other websites just never showed back up but when these new websites came back online this meant that jt aries had to attack again and so they did once you find target submitted up get it approved go take down target take down target. Take it down and we stayed on for. Oh Jeez continued from that day on for seven months and after taking down isis his websites over and over and over and over again and again for seven months they effectively took out ninety percent of Isis websites. That just never showed back up. We didn't have ops every day. But you know for the first thirty days or so we had. We almost had ops every day. Oh and another thing you can look at see how effective this was is the isis media magazines that they were put now. If you look at the Romania in the magazines were ices flagship magazine. They came out. They were fifty to sixty pages. High Quality Video Great Stories Instructions on how to tax recaps of old attacks. They did excerpts with leadership other Isis fighters to try and inspire people. And they were they were very good magazines productions. They had them in all the different languages and they were very professional when going. Sifni came into play. The RAMIAH magazine was the new magazine and they say that was coming out every thirty days. Like between twenty eight and thirty days and it was based off of the Islamic calendar at the time. We didn't know that this happened but when I was looking back you know we could definitely see the impact. They wanted it to come out between they wanted to come out on the first of each month a day of the month for the Islamic calendar. The five o'clock news comes on at five o'clock not five or five right when we look back at the impacts of growing symphony the November came out on Day. Thirty six so their average was twenty eight to thirty and it came out on day thirty six so it was very late almost a week late and then they were back on track and then other disruption ops and continued operations from. Osias came into play and when we come back we would see that date belonging and then we would see longer if you plot those dates out the dates get longer and longer until a point where the Ramiah had been discredited with other operations affects to a point to where they decided not to do it anymore that it was unsustainable the brand had been damaged and they abandoned it so it took time for the for them to give up and for the brand to be fully damaged but the operations to slow down the production to make it harder to delete the files to disrupt coordination to to do all of that had an impact over time to a point to where they abandoned it now as far as I know the US government has never taken credit for any cyberattacks like this ever. This is the first time ever that they've publicly said they have destroyed computers using cyberattacks. Now now that you say that I I think it is that they are saying. We have conducted offensive cyber operations against a target. I think this is the first time I mean in the past like the the public mission for more for cyber says we conduct offensive cyber operations in support of US government right so like the mission says offensive cyber and it said that for a long time. But I think you're right. Nobody said we did this. We deleted this. We locked out this so I never thought of it that way but I think you're right. It's still fascinating to me to see that the military trains hackers but I guess this is the natural progression of how the world has become because historically the military had four domains of warfare. Land Sea air and space but in nineteen ninety-five the added information as the fifth domain of warfare. The military has to be ready to battle on this front. Because if they aren't the enemy will be attacking us. They're in the military and all services. They're building out. Cyber branches and cyber specialties at an entry level on the enlisted side ended in officer side so kids from high school with computer skills. That WANNA get into hacking. Or after you go to college you WanNa get into hacking an officer you can. There are paths to go right into cyber career field in the military and they have the the blue team side with the cyber cyber protection teams and they have the offensive side with the combat mission teams. So whichever had you WANNA wear you can go right into those positions with training and and begin.

"Bet they hacked into all these people to they had access to their phones laptops and facilities everything together as much data as it could probably even their spouses and relatives and bosses and friends to either they were infecting all these systems and bring their way deep into the Isis Media. Network and then establishing persistence maintain their foothold in there. Because if you think about this this is all going on in the same building that the NSA headquarters in Fort Meade Maryland. That big black box of a building that. I'm sure you've seen pictures of so. If they needed more help they could just walk down the hall and get another group of people who are specialized in something to help them out. I mean I'm just guessing here but here's an attack. I think they probably did. I imagine if they hacked into the phone of one of these isis media people and then on that phone they stole the private decryption keys for that phone. This would be the key used to decrypt messages to that phone. Then imagine they hacked into the Wi fi network. That phone was on and somehow captured all the traffic to that phone now. Somewhere in that traffic. Are the private chat messages to that phone and with these private keys. I'm guessing it's technically possible to decrypt those messages. This would be a pretty complex hack but I bet it's something that cyber command could do. I mean we had a long target list and it was. It was a large. You think of like a large grass just pictures servers. Domains accounts all connected with lines and it was all we had a pretty good understanding of all right. I can just picture it now. A big map. On the wall linking everything together with photos of everyone and it probably looks like a map that the FBI will create when building a case on someone red strings connecting everything together. Feel like there's very few people that know as much about Isis. Media's me and a couple of guys on the team in. Twenty fifteen if you remember in the summer and early fall. That's when Isis attacks started to really pick up and they started to have those horrific videos and beheadings and kidnappings of Westerners and the leadership. Congress and Secretary Carter at the time. We're getting set up with all of this going on and having it be all over the news so people were getting a little angry in leadership and they wanted something done about it and we weren't really doing any ops to counter it at that at that time so because they had extensive knowledge of Isis media. They started to think could we? Would it be possible for us to actually disrupt them instead of just spy on them so they started to devise some plans to actually take down some of Isis media? They were developing tactical cyber attacks to take out a website or take control of it or delete an entire server the up with a plan to take out just part of a network in one country as sort of a test to see how effective this would be made it so that we had some confidence in what we do in our abilities and then you know General Hawk came back and was know. What do we do now like how? How much bigger can we go? What's the next step? And then we said we can go. Global. Let's go global instead of no one country or two countries scoble. What's to do everything after the break? We'll hear how this mission went. Global stigmatise the commander felt like he had the skills and expertise to take up more of Isis media. But the leadership wasn't sure if this was the right course of action. They needed something else. And icing on the cake was November You know you had the Paris attacks and which were the horrible attacks and that kind of was the final Straw to wear before early December and before Christmas Secretary Carter said I want options. We have to do something big now. Up until November two thousand fifteen. It was all sit. Listen and enable other kinetic operations for the guys on the ground help inform them to do certain things and there wasn't a mindset or an appetite at the time for Hey let's do a strictly cyber operation to try and stop this media or try to diminish their impact of an attack in the publicity side of things we were ready at a tactical level. I felt like but there wasn't that appetite at higher levels to say. Oh we can. We can do something. That's purely cyber and have an impact on this terrorist apparatus over there. He was looking over his big map of Isis media. Looking over all the connections drawing a connection from this system to that system to that network and this person making all these connections and he was looking at the map and all of a sudden it started to make sense. Things became crystal clear. There were few key. Nodes that if you were to Disrupt or take out these key nodes the whole thing might come crashing down. This was a big discovery for the commander double checked his work and looked over it again and yet this was making sense. This was the way to take out. Isis media attack these nodes and it all unravels. That's when I had my like. Aha moment like my pappy. Sylvia moment we've been staring at this data for a long time all these lists and information and then in February it kind of struck me that it was all connected and it was very centralized so I I remember running downstairs to my boss's office in the basement at NASA and starting to draw on the board circles with names and numbers and drawing the lines together and then saying sir. It's all connected. It's all here. We take this out. It all goes away or these five things that will all fall apart. It's a house of cards. This was a big moment. The leadership agreed that perhaps using hacking takeout is this media would be ineffective approach with the strategy. A new task force had to be created to handle this first. They decided to start creating joint task force aires or JT F- Aries for short now. J. T. F. Areas was formed to carry out a specific mission. Jj Fear is just Cyprus specialists that focus in offensive cyber operations against Isis. Whoa wicked a group of military trained hackers all coming together to make joint task force areas specifically to target Isis and isis media. Well this task force was getting spun up. The captains had to decide on what the mission would be. No in my opinion. This is where a major shift in operations took place you see we know that the military in the NFC collects data and they listen for signals and decipher the messages. And sometimes they break into a computer to get that data but still that's all it is. It's gathering data from the adversary. But here. Here's where a big change takes place up until this point this team was doing was listening and watching and collecting yet the hacked into the enemy to listen and collect. But that's all they were instructed and legally allowed to do but now leadership is granting them the ability to disrupt degrade and destroy the target using cyberattacks. This is a big difference. It's kind of like the difference between someone on the roof with a pair of binoculars versus someone on the roof with a long barreled rifle and a scope with orders to kill you. See The difference. They were never allowed to weaponize. There has to destroy before but now now. They're getting permission.

"Nine others were critically injured the epicenter of the attack though would be the battle clung a concert venue as the band beagles team within the NSA or actually it came out of the NSA but now it's its own thing so yeah you got that right to do we're going to hear a hacking story from someone inside the US Cyber Command which is a very secret hacking organization within the US government which makes this an extremely rare interview so are you ready for this okay so let's back up the commander here wasn't always a commander t started out as a regular recruit in the marines but quickly he knew he wanted more so I actually started I was a force recon marine right I Five years so so I was in I jumped out of planes did the Halo Heyhoe Scuba dive all that stuff well This guy's a beast I mean my understanding is at Marines training to be a killer it's a very aggressive branch of the military but force RECON amplifies that immensely they're the highest trained in the Marines and in two thousand twelve he was deployed to Afghanistan in the sing in prevents a tough place and trying to neutralize the Taliban over there doing hello raids and other operations and after a few years of that he came back and spent a total of five years as an active force recon marine you get older things get harder so the way to stay in the fight is to cyber the marines give you a little wiggle room on where you can choose do you WanNa go so he decided to join the Marine Forces Cyber Command but with the switch they knew they needed to give him some training they sent me to school for loser cybersecurity stuff just basic security plus network plus C H and then they do they did put us through some more technical training for Computer Network Exploitation Luke camps and cyber attack and defend and eventually you attend mission Commander Course for my role was there's an officer so at this point he's an officer for Mar four cyber that's short for Marine Forces cybercrime okay now let me read to you a paraphrase version of the mission in statement for this group Mark for cyber the mission statement is quote to Conduct Full Spectrum Cyberspace operations including conducting offensive Cyberspace Operations and Quo Listen It at the Conduct Offensive Cyberspace Operations I once heard the US government has admitted to conducting cyberspace attacks but look at this it's right here in the mission statement of Mar for cyber and when I think about the mindset that the marines have and how they're so competitive and gung-ho and battle hungry I just can't imagine what kind of hackers would come out of this everybody says overshooting cyber today we're going out on patrol it's funny but it's true and then you know I mean we always try to keep that kind of mindset especially in the Marines where the Marines are known to be more aggressive in that was not different in cyber our team was the first to do a lot of things it's your computer geek or your or your buff geared buff guy right like which one is it or is it both there's a lot of buff dudes in cyber to be honest but it's it's pretty funny I mean we we still do all of that I'm Kinda stuff I know people have some traditions when you're the first for your first cyber mission on the OPS floor don't make you wear a flak jackets or a helmet to look goofy when you're sitting in front of the computer because it's your first op traditions still comes into play in some of the floors today so there is still that you know military mindset of messing with people and and things like that I mean it's it's pretty funny I find it I find it fun so this is how transformed from being a trained killer to capable hacker and he's on a new mission now it's about the enemy from behind the screen yeah we're all in uniform it's sitting in front of a computer screen for screams just like movies everybody's in uniform working on things very sensitive locations and sites you'll be out of uniform and things like that but still at Fort Meade you're in uniform all time in the fall of twenty fourteen I was finishing up all my training and they had just started a team between NSA and cyber com that was focused solely on isis media. Yes back to isis so isis sometimes it's called still produces a ton media content I mean they have to magazines that are published in ten different languages and these magazines are excellent quality to they're very well done high quality pictures from the front lines an ex early designed they also have a ton of social media accounts post news stories and even act as recruitment tools for new members also have people producing high quality videos filming horrific things and editing them cleaning them up to maximize the impact to the viewer to run all this they must have a whole network to share content between the teams store the videos and pictures and then a bunch of skilled people to run everything so is this media was everything that involved the production of their magazines the videos that everyone saw come out the logos the attack claims all of the social media accounts that they had the websites everything that was associated with that was what was under the umbrella of Isis Media and they had a lot of people I mean we were talking we're talking Cameron we're talking editors we're talking you know linguists for translating into every language across the world so that the could disseminate their message we had you have your own. It shops and finance guys I mean it was a large scale variation and you could see that in like all the videos that came out they were Hollywood quality videos that were hitting CNN and ABC on a daily basis on most and that was that was all isis media so since the US government was already using intelligence perations to keep tabs on Isis. They felt that Isis media was big enough to create a team to just focus on this alone so isis media had been on the scene for about a year ear before that and then in twenty fourteen in the fall it was finally becoming so big that it was its own entity in warranted its own dedicated analysis project production targeting effort and that's where they pulled a few marines together after you civilian and and started a a pretty crack knit team and then I took over the team at the end of the year in Twenty Fourteen Oh wow this very interesting right from force recon marine to mar for cyber and now to the NSA and cyber command to gather as much information as he can on isis media so I says media became his primary focus all day every day him and his team were they're doing everything they could to understand who's behind this we were trying to map out the network so everything behind everything that made isis media tick or you look at a regional news office they have senior editors they have people that do translations they have a web guy that sets up the website they have a guy that configures domain names guy that you know their it staff that keeps the sheriff the shared drives running keeps the email accounts up there chat services so that they can conduct their daily business and you have your field journalists and cameramen and all of those all of that stuff the goal was to simply gather data basically spy on them and collect as much data as they could from this group and they did this for a long time fourteen all the way through to summer of two thousand sixteen was analysis development building out the network understanding how they operated what they did that was I mean it was over we spent a year and a half just understanding the target space and living out a high fidelity network just to give you an idea of where we are in a time line this is still before ices invaded Mozell and declared a caliphate and here already the NSA Cyber Command are tracking them heavily now can you imagine how much data they collected in this time I mean we're talking the say and Cyber Command here and dedicating a whole team to investigate this for two solid years by that time and with those resources I'm sure they must have had everyone's name who is behind isis media and where it was edited who's running the social media accounts what software they're running and I bet that goes so much deeper he didn't say I bet they hacked into all these people to they had access to their phones and laptops and facilities everything together as much data.

"Death of ISIS. Now, maybe I'm premature on this, but I am taking the Kurdish and the word for this because the, the ISIS media department that normally is embedded with the actual ISIS fighters has melted away, actually over the past year. An ISIS have not been able to produce on there really well, produced very, very slick high definition soundtrack. Well, edited as cinematic quality propaganda videos. In fact, it's been several years since they've actually put one out primarily because the guys in the ISIS media department, well have been purged by ISIS. Many of them were accused of being traitors. Because of the past couple of years, they haven't been there haven't been many victories for them to tout. And so their offerings have been pretty lean they're now left to angry high school students in Indonesia, sending a Photoshop threats of downtown LA with exploding, high rises and a guy badly layered with the ISIS flag in the front. That's that is ISIS in two thousand nineteen that and a tiny little village along the Friday's river, in the south central part of Syria. That is all this left devices ISIS, surrendered, many hundreds of heavy weapons. Mortars. Antitank missiles, things like that a few days ago, now, according to the Syrian, democratic forces who are, again, the guys that we recruited trained equipped lead and, and supported who have done such a phenomenal job in fighting against ISIS. But they've only done a really good job because a really extrordinary job by several hundred at the most a three or four thousand Americans on the ground in Syria have done a really extrordinary job of coordinating American overwhelming fire support from the air as well as artillery on the ground to fix and destroy ISIS. Isis have not seen the nor did they probably even think of the kind of fire support that America brought to the battlefield not Russia, not even Syria and certainly not the Iranian militias and not the Turks. But the United States. It's sent a very capable tiny task force called operation, inherent resolve that has been decisively lead over the past two and a half years by a general VO, tell that have done a really outstanding counterinsurgency job, and this will go down in history as one of the most successful counterinsurgency in the past several hundred years, because number one, I has been one of the most fearsome and effective insurgencies over the past hundred years, because number one they came from nowhere. The United States invaded Syria in apartment Iraq in two thousand and three and almost simultaneously. I instituted the debate of occasion policy. This is the policy where we dissolved the Iraqi army the regular army the conscript, not just the Republican Guard or the special Republican Guard, who should have been detained and tried as war criminals. But we dissolve. Solved. The regular Iraqi army putting hundreds of thousands of men out on the streets without gainful employment in a basket case collapsed, Iraqi economy from this raw material is where the insurgency against the United States was easily organized by Qaeda. Also by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard who are able to mobilize the, the newly empowered Shia majority of Iraq in two anti American militias in the form of Muqtada, solders, Mahdi army, or Josh al-mahdi. Meanwhile, the more lethal guys where the al-qaeda organiz guys, the Sunni guys the guys from on bar province. The guys from north in to Crete along the, the, the Tigris and Euphrates valleys up, north between Mosul and Baghdad. These were the people who were. Now out of power, these are the people who were in power for thirty years when, as, as one Iraqi described to me, a gang of two Creedy, sheep herders took over Iraq in the form of Saddam Hussein and his clan. And this was the high tide of the Sunni Arabs in Iraq. Well, now the United States army and Marine Corps came to Baghdad and the Sunnis. No now were minorities. They were the richest recruiting ground for al-qaeda, and they were easily the most effective insurgents from early on because Al Qaeda operatives came flooding into Iraq with a battle experience from everywhere from Afghanistan to Chechnya, the idea, experience originally, primarily came from Chechen, who had been very effectively fighting, Russian occupying forces in Chechnya with field expedient roadside bombs that we call improvised, explosive devices, and they. They brought that raw material and Ron knowledge to Iraq and taught Iraqis how to go into unguarded ammunition dumps poll, mortar, and artillery rounds out and put explosive filler into the fuse. Well, tie it to a circuit through a cell phone cheap Nokia, ninety one hundred ten dollar cellphone dig it a very, very shallow grave next to a road and then wait for an American convoy to go by dial. The cell phone number blow up the ID it was devilishly simple. And it was devilishly effective of the five thousand plus American casualties in Iraq at at least three thousand or from roadside bombs or ideas. So the nasty little secret about the American occupation of Iraq is that after the surge the United States and the newly constituted democratic Iraqi government was actually a prevailing in Iraq? And making inroads in fighting the Sunni insurgency to the point where even the Shia militias decided to sit down for a little while and even cooperate and fight. Some of the some of the Sunni terrorist groups primarily Al Qaeda in Iraq, and then something really horrible happen. Abu. Musab bazar Kali, who was Al Qaeda's number one guy in Iraq. It was the number one most wanted man for US forces in Iraq. His Al Qaeda in Iraq, guys blew up a mosque, a very significant mosque in the city of Samara. And what initially had been feared from the moment, we got to Baghdad and that, that being a Shia on Sunni internal civil war a payback war that we had so far avoided suddenly was on. And this was probably our goal. In fact, this is well before we killed them about a year before we kill them. That his goal in L Qaeda's goal in Iraq was to go ahead and set off the religious war, the sectarian war, between the majority Shia and the hated Sunni who were part of Saddam's favored, inner circle, and now they had blown up a significant and very revered mosque of the city of Samara. So the bloodletting was on at a point when the American surge had worked, and we had turned a corner in Iraq. This is a, a lost pivot point to most American media. And this is approximately two thousand eight in all likelihood you could place, the birth of ISIS, right around two thousand eight because the Sunni insurgency took it on a completely different face after the elections had happened, and they were -ffective at a democratically elected government came to power in Iraq. The people who were running the Sunni insurgency, Al Qaeda in Iraq decided to. Change the game. They just didn't change their name yet. But for all intents of purposes, ISIS almost preceded the Syrian civil war, but it wasn't until the Syrian civil war that ISIS got himself a name got himself an identity and entered the major leagues. The life and death of ISIS in four parts part number to Syria. Comes apart at the seams right after this on the dart secret place. KFI AM six forty more stimulating talk.

Isis have not seen the nor. Did they probably even think of the kind of fire support that America brought to the battlefield not Russia? Not even Syria, and certainly not the Iranian militias and not the Turks, but the United States. It's sent a very capable tiny task force called operation inherent. Resolve that has been decisively lead over the past two and a half years by a general VO tell that have done a really outstanding counterinsurgency job and this will go down in history. As one of the most successful counterinsurgency in the past several hundred years because number one, I has been one of the most fearsome and effective insurgencies over the past hundred years because number one they came from nowhere, the United States invaded Syria in apartment Iraq in two thousand and three and almost simultaneously instituted the debate vacation policy. This is the policy where we dissolved the Iraqi army the regular army, the conscript, not just the Republican Guard or these special Republican Guard who should have been detained and tried as war criminals, but we desire. Solved the regular Iraqi army putting hundreds of thousands of men out on the streets without gainful employment in a basket case collapsed rocky economy from this raw material is where the insurgency against the United States was easily organized by all Qaeda, and then also by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard who were able to mobilize the the newly empowered. Shia majority of Iraq in two anti American militias in the form of Muqtada solders Mahdi army or Josh al-mahdi. Meanwhile, the more lethal guys where the al-qaeda organiz guys the Sunni guys the guys from on bar province. The guys from north in decreed along the the the Tigris and Euphrates valleys up north between Mosul, and Baghdad these were the people who were. Now out of power. These were the people who were in power for thirty years when as as one Iraqi described to me a gang of decree sheep herders took over Iraq in the form of Saddam Hussein and his clan. And this was the high tide of the Sunni Arabs in Iraq. Well, now, the United States army and Marine Corps came to Baghdad and the Sunnis. No now were minorities, they were the richest recruiting ground for al-qaeda, and they were easily the most effective insurgents from early on because Al Qaeda operatives came flooding into Iraq with a battle experience from everywhere from Afghanistan to Chechnya, the idea experience, originally, primarily came from Chechens who had been very effectively fighting Russian occupying forces in Chechnya with field expedient roadside bombs that we call improvised explosive devices and. They brought that raw material and Ron knowledge to Iraq and taught Iraqis how to go into unguarded ammunition dumps poll mortar and artillery rounds out and put explosive filler into the fuse. Well, tie it to a circuit through a cell phone, cheap Nokia ninety one hundred ten dollar cellphone dig it. Very very shallow grave next to a road. And then wait for an American convoy to go by dial, the cell phone number blow up the ID was devilishly simple. And it was devilishly effective of the five thousand plus American casualties in Iraq at at least three thousand or from roadside bombs or ID's. So the nasty little secret about the American occupation of Iraq. Is that after the surge the United States and the newly constituted democratic? Iraqi government was actually a prevailing in Iraq. And making inroads in fighting the Sunni insurgency to the point where even the Shia militias decided to sit down for a little while and even cooperate and fight some of the. Some of the Sunni terrorist groups, primarily Al Qaeda in Iraq. And then something really horrible happen. Abu Musab bizarre collie who was Al Qaeda's number one guy in Iraq. It was the number one. Most wanted man for US forces in Iraq. His Al Qaeda in Iraq guys, blew up a mosque a very significant mosque in the city of Samara, and what initially had been feared from the moment. We got to Baghdad and that that being a Shia on Sunni, internal civil war. A payback war that we had so far avoided suddenly was on. And this was probably our Cowboys goal. In fact, this is well before we kill them about a year before we kill them. That his goal and al-qaeda's goal in. Iraq was to go ahead and set off the religious war, these sectarian war between the majority Shia, and they hated Sunni who were part of Saddam's favored inner circle. And now they had blown up a significant and very revered mosque of the city of Samara. So the bloodletting was on at a point when the American surge at work, and we had turned a corner in Iraq. This is a a lost pivot point to most American media. And this is approximately two thousand eight in all likelihood, you could place the the birth of ISIS right around two thousand eight because the Sunni insurgency took it on a completely different face after the elections had happened, and they were -ffective at a democratically elected government came to power in Iraq. The people who were running the Sunni insurgency Al Qaeda in Iraq decided to. Change the game. They just didn't change their name yet. But for all intents and purposes, ISIS almost preceded the Syrian civil war. But it wasn't until the Syrian civil war that ISIS got itself. A name got itself an identity and entered the major leagues the life and death of ISIS in four parts part. Number to Syria comes apart at the seams right after this on the dark secret place.

"And down waiting download ISIS media, and they're getting picked up before they go to the airport. As a matter of fact, one terrorism expert, I talked to describe the individuals we've been prosecuting has wannabes speak with Jeff more doc department of Justice reporter at the Washington Times about his piece entitled few charge despite thousands of active terrorism investigations, so the war on. Terror the the the defeating of ISIS in various places how much is that. I guess just also hurting people's desires to want to join these groups. Well, that's a big factor. And that's that's something that needs to be discussed that with the destruction of the caliphate. There just hasn't been ISIS is weak. And there just hasn't been the desire to go overseas and fight for ISIS because where are people gonna go? I lost a tremendous amount of ground. There certainly a shell of what they once were and that has sort of limited their appeal. Plus, the FBI has done a very good job picking up people here who have been supporting ISIS or pro posting pro ISIS propaganda on social media. They foiled a terrorist plot this person had linked to Al Qaeda in Cleveland on the fourth of July. So they are doing a very good job with net. There is in picking people up and taking them off the streets before they can put a gun in their hand and do some damage how about this. Whole online propaganda push back that the US I think tried once on successfully in kinda retooled, it does Zecchini any credit is that effective at all it saying joining ISIS is not what it's cracked up to be, blah, blah, blah. It is it plays a role. I don't want to minimize it. But I think in the end it comes down to more than anything the destruction of the cow fight in Syria. I think that has made the biggest difference that in terms of lessening people's desire to go overseas. Because again, where are you gonna go? There's just you're gonna go over there. And you're gonna find a shell of what once was ISIS, and I think that has really lessen the appeal for a lot of people. It's why we're starting to see a slight uptick in Al Qaeda Arash that we haven't seen before. Because Al Qaeda's a little bit on the comeback has kind of goes down a little bit. Thanks, jeff.
