Hosted by

By the deft use of social media, the Islamic State has projected an image of unity and determination that's helped to recruit new members. Now, there's a report that 58 ISIS defectors are speaking out about why they've left. It comes from the International Center for the Study of Radicalization in London. Aki Peritz is a terrorism analyst, formerly with the CIA now a fellow at the George Washington Center for Cyber and Homeland Security.
