[ by Charles Cameron — an eerily prescient video? ]

The title of this recent video, Sheikh Anwar Awlaki Speaking about The Islamic State of Iraq and Al Sham ISIS, is anachronistic — yet al-Awlaqi‘s topic has strong relevance today:


In my view, Awlaqi overlooks the probable fragmentation of the ISIS alliance, the depth of eventual Iraqi resistance to ISIS’ puritan rule, and the powerful forces already arraying themselves against their fledgling “caliphate”.

Thanks to Chris Anzalone for the pointer.
