ISIS-K Is Coming For the Taliban

The idea of terrorism as a franchise isn’t new, maybe, but nobody’s done it better than Islamic State. Most Americans thought the fight against ISIS was over with the fall of Raqqa. But on August 26, at least 169 Afghans and 13 US troops were killed in Kabul by a group calling itself ISIS-K. 


Islamic State, apparently, lives on.


Joby Warrick of the Washington Post joins us to talk about ISIS - how it started and what it is now.
