(NationalSecurity.news) The Islamic State group is planning more attacks against the West in order to compensate for large territorial losses in Syria and Iraq, CIA Director John Brennan told Congress on Thursday.
In addition to its battlefield progress, the Coalition has managed to “squeeze” the Islamic State group’s finance and media operations, Brennan said.
Furthermore, he said, the Islamic State group appears to be having trouble replacing fighters lost in-country. Fewer foreign fighters are joining the force, and others appear eager to defect.
