THE JOHN BATCHELOR SHOW NOW AIRS FROM 9 P TO 1 A, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK, IN NEW YORK AND WASHINGTON, D.C.
Monday 10 October 2016 / Hour 1, Block A: Tom Joscelyn, Long War Journal senior editor & FDD, and Bill Roggio, Long War Journal senior editor & FDD, in re: Al Qaeda is the mother ship; ISIS is a subtribe. ISIS puts out infographics monthly; strong growth in martyrdom (782); but in Sept the number goes down to 53 Whereas 119 in May 2016. Haven’t kept the trendline moving up. Down in both Iraq and Syria. Ebb and flow in the fight; ISI grew fast initially, although some of the “martyrs” are children forced to blow themselves up.
