The Corporatization Of Terrorism with ISIS
ISIS, the Sunni extremist group that calls itself the Islamic State used sheer brutality to capture huge parts of Iraq and Syria. ISIS likes to present itself as a descendent of a seven century caliphate. Captured documents show that its business and management structure is modern and sophisticated, more like a multinational corporation than an ancient religious dynasty. Cam Simpson is an investigative reporter with Bloomberg Businessweek. He says much of what we know about ISIS’s structure comes from documents found in a ditch in Anbar province by U.S. Marines on a routine patrol during the surge and from a hard drive captured not long after that.
