The Rise of ISIS


Hey Folks, 

I'm a little slow on the draw here, but I'd like to share a great documentary produced by Frontline on the rise of the Sunni insurgent group known as ISIS. 


I found this piece (originally aired on October 28th, 2014) informative and interesting, and thanks to Frontline's unparralled access, there are a number of candid and eye opening interviews with of high level government officials and other key figures which I found interesting. 


 Here is the trailer:

Happy Learning!

 A new media venture created by Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, and Jeremy Scahill was launched today, and their first article, The NSA's Secret Role in the U.S. Assassination Program, is a must read.
 



Check out Democracy Now's interview with Scahill and Greenwald here.
