The global reign of terror and violence from ISIS continues to intensify, despite significant advances from the United States and other nations. With the increased frequency of these attacks and their public displays of defiance, understanding the somewhat mysterious origins of ISIS is crucial. Phyllis Bennis (fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, author of Understanding ISIS) pulls back the curtain on this organization and its relationship to the war in Iraq. She explained  how the United States became so wrapped up in this conflict, and address the underlying question on many minds: “Can you really go to war on terror?”
