“ISIS threat overstated,” says expert who apparently read my book

It’s gratifying to see articles like this starting to appear. Last month I suggested that we all put an entry in our calendars for one year from now reading, “What was ISIS again?” They are nasty, cruel butchers, for sure, but they threaten no one outside their own countries, and if those countries get their acts together, they can push the crazies back under their rocks. If not, so ISIS will control some real estate. That does not mean the West has to attack in panic. It needs to control the possible spillovers from ISIS through intelligence–both meanings of the word. In short–this is not our war.
