Abu Bakr al Baghdadi and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS)

Abu Bakr al Baghdadi and the ISIS
The ISIS has filled the vacuum left when the American forces pulled out of Iraq.  It's goal is to take over Lebanon, Syria and Iraq.  The ISIS is certainly well funded now (with its capture of hundreds of millions in Mosul).  Abu Bakr was in US custody, until he was released in 2009.  Hmmm, good to know there is little danger releasing these individuals from detention.  

While denounced by some jihadi groups as too violent, the ISIS is affiliated with al Qaeda:
In Syria, ISIS has also been fighting not only forces loyal to Assad but also fellow rebel groups. The ISIS leader has, however, reached out to other rebel groups in a bid to curb the infighting. 
ISIS, which was previously the Islamic State of Iraq, was formed in April 2013 when Baghdadi sought to merge his group with Al-Nusra Front, but they rejected the alliance and pledged allegiance directly to Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri.
