    What's next for the Islamic State as its caliphate is collapsing? Best to look into Mao's theory of revolutionary people's war as argued by Naval War College, Monterey Prof Craig Whiteside. Here's a link.

    Default Global Jihad

    Clints Watts in FPRI examines in a short article on 'Two-and-a-Half Years After ISIS’s Rise: Global Jihad Spreads And Morphs':http://www.fpri.org/2016/09/2-12-yea...preads-morphs/

    He is optmistic that US intellignce community will understand the global jihad better:
    Successfully anticipating jihad’s divergence will require tens or even hundreds of analysts equipped with advanced degrees, language skills, and field experience tapped into a blend of human and technical sources. Luckily, we have that! It’s called the U.S. intelligence community. Moving forward, Western intelligence services will be positioned to put together the global picture. Jihadis have gone local and academics and analysts should as well. To understand jihad’s local flavor moving forward, look to journalists (like here and here) and academics (here’s one) doing true field research, in-person interviews and reporting rather than those relying heavily on social media personas of dubious access and reliability.

    Default IS activist "publishes" addresses of Belgian soldiers

    Apparently a French IS activist published the names and addresses of 4 Belgian soldiers on the Internet.

    I have only the Belgian and German news version:

    It's always easier to ask for forgiveness than permisson.

    Default Profiles of Islamic State Leaders: a report

    In July 2016 the London-based, neo-conservative think-tank, the Henry Jackson Society, released a report Profiles of Islamic State Leaders by Kyle Orton, an analyst who often appears in the Syrian War threads.Today the report was publicised again and HJS states:
    The report provides detailed profiles and biographical details of the key figures within the caliphate’s government, both for the chief administrators internally, and for those organising attacks against the West. The command and control structure of the organisation is laid out in detail.
    Link to the seventy pg. report:http://henryjacksonsociety.org/wp-co...ers-report.pdf

    I have not read the report.
