Michael Weiss Explains Isis

Here's my conversation with Michael Weiss, author of "Isis: Inside the Army of Terror," a book that should serve as a primer on the terrorist group for everyone. Among the topics we discussed:
  • President Obama's claim that Isis is not about religion, it's about terrorism;
  • Why declaring a holy war against Isis would be playing right into their hands;
  • How Isis seems more violent than Al Qaeda because it's better at propaganda;
  • Why we can't just "bomb them to smithereens" as some have suggested;
  • Why he writes in the introduction that "this book is personal."
