Patrick Henningsen is an independent journalist and founder of 21st Century Wire, an independent media voice for geopolitical news and analysis. Patrick returns to discuss the ISIS crisis. He’ll talk about who is funding the crisis and how recruitment is done. Does ISIS pose a threat? Patrick explains how ISIS did not come from Syria. We’ll also discuss what Israel wants out of the Syrian situation. Later, we’ll speak about the beheading of James Foley and how social media is being used as a pretext to go to war.
There are little bits I am not a fan of, but, overall Mr Henningsen offers up a good outline similar to much of the information I have been able find and bring to your attention. I will relink some of the background information assembled here.
And I am in agreement 100 percent with his assertion that we need to get smarter and sharpen our critical thinking skills. So we can't get fooled again and again and again.
