Michigan Congressman Mike Rogers has some insight into why ISIS and al Qaeda have had issues, and note that while the intelligence community was well aware of the growing threat from ISIS, watching them gain power and influence over the past three years, the administration largely ignored the threat.  Here’s a brief clip of Rogers explaining his position:

The situation on the ground in Iraq is intensifying as Ramadan is fast approaching.  ISIS will likely use the month of Ramadan to consolidate their gains and recruit more people to their cause.  ISIS has recently threatened supply routes from Iran into Syria, and since Syria is an Iranian proxy-state the Assad regime may feel pressure to attack ISIS-held areas, drawing Iran deeper into the fight.
