ISIS isn’t just a sprawling paramilitary terrorist organization, it’s also a media company, with digital and print publications reaching a global audience. Its flagship publication is Dabiq, the Vogue of global jihad. In its February 2015 issue, the chief suspect in the recent assault on Paris sat down for an interview and made his intentions obvious.
Earlier today, the Washington Post reported that Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the Belgian national believed to have masterminded the terror attacks in Paris last week was killed in a police raid this morning. The New York Times and the Associated Press, however, report that French authorities are still unsure.
