Imagine a group that have Saddam’s former military as their trainers, his ruthless intelligence service controlling ISIS soldiers and the general population, now dominating a majority of Syria and a significant portion of Iraq. That is ISIS. With 50 to 100 recruits arriving each week, programmed to kill everyone who does not follow their interpretation of Islam, they are capturing the minds of youth around the world. Brad discusses the threat and appeal of ISIS as well as how our current approach to fighting them is showing signs of not being an effective long term solution.

President Obama’s strategy to combat ISIS has come under increasing attack. And it hasn’t been just Republicans and foreign foes doing the attacking. On Tuesday, France warned that the US led coalition’s strategy against ISIS … of which it was the first nation to sign up…is not working, and more needs to be done to stop the division of Iraq or Syria or both. Then there’s Ryan Crocker, a former US ambassador to Iraq and the man the White House appointed to try to fix Afghanistan. In a withering critique of the President, Crocker said that “our (read Obama’s) inaction since 2011 — and I mean political inaction more than military — leads us to today.”

Against the backdrop of a forecast that calls for more rain, the search has resumed for the missing in areas of Texas and Oklahoma devastated by flooding in the past week. Houston’s mayor has requested a disaster declaration after heavy rains Monday night pushed bayous out of their banks and flooded freeways around the nation’s fourth-largest city. At least ten people across the region have died in the flooding; many more than that if tornadoes along the Texas/Mexico border are taken into account. ABC’s Jim Ryan updates the story from Dallas/Fort Worth.
