    ISIS "tremendously well-funded". By whom? ...and why aren't we choking the funds off and prosecuting

    the funders?

    The ISIS money has to hit the banks at some point, in this day and age tracking hundreds of millions should not be all that difficult (considering the NSA knows what porn you watch http://cyberlaw.stanford.edu/blog/20...l-been-waiting).

    This would be a far more cost effective method of fighting them than wasting more blood and treasure in the desert (which, of course, will never work as the war has been going on there since antiquity)

    Follow the money.... why is this so difficult? Perhaps because at least some of it leads back to Mcain, Graham, and Prince Bandar (http://www.theatlantic.com/internati...bandar/373181/)



    special operations forces under the Joint Special Operations Command and U.S. Special Operations Command keep close tabs on the military evolution of ISIS and both its combat and terrorism -- called "asymmetric" -- capabilities, officials told ABC News. A primary reason is in anticipation of possibly fighting them, which a full squadron of special mission unit operators did in the Independence Day raid on an ISIS camp in Raqqah, Syria.

    "They're incredible fighters. ISIS teams in many places use special operations TTPs," said the second official, who has considerable combat experience, using the military term for "tactics, techniques and procedures."

    In sobering press conference Friday, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said ISIS has shown that it is “as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen.”

    “They’re beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded,” he said. “This is beyond anything that we’ve seen.”

    Some give sane answers but the majority...

    Actually, the source of much of ISIS's money is well known. When ISIS captured Mosul, they captured a bank that had 100s of millions of dollars.

    Sorry DU-Folk! No Bush, McCain, Koch, or other bogeyman connection, just Iraq failing to recognize ISIS as a threat and a failure of Obama Administration intel people to warn Iraq.

    ISIS probably pilfered a lot of money from the Syrian's too.

    Iraq had been warning about ISIS for the past year. They even asked for our help a year ago.
    Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

    They are also selling oil on the black market. One of their goals has been to take over oil fields.

    We can't choke their money off. That'd be against obastard's policies regarding protecting and encouraging all muzzies.

    These are the same liberals that thought the Palestinians should be better armed to make things fair.
    I'm sure they have the same attitude with Americas enemies even though we are talking American lives, this is all a big game for liberals.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    DUers are f*cking idiots.

    Have they ever thought that ISIS could just send lots of their agents ( non-Arabs) into America under assume I.D.s, or even walk them over the southern border ( which wide open thanks to them) and attack at will.

    No, because it not part of the drama playing their head.

    Sure they know it Dan, they just don't want to talk about it.

    And when something does happen they will just blame
