The Aftermath Of The Islamic State Terror Attack In Bangladesh

CNN: Stunned residents after terror attack: 'Bangladesh was never like this'

Dhaka, Bangladesh (CNN)Except for the stern-faced police officers standing guard while a swarm of television journalists jostled for the best vantage points, Gulshan Road No. 79 looked no different this Sunday.

Cars blared their horns at rickshaws drifting into their path. Street peddlers scurried by, calling out the names of the fresh fruit nestled in baskets on their heads. Pedestrians hurled profanities at drivers as they dodged and weaved in between traffic.

Why did Obama declare ISIS 'contained' the day before Paris attack?

1) Obama's JV team seems to have a lot of away games. What is up with that?

Politifact covers the rear of the Parser in Chief

Obama is the WORLD Whack-a-Mole champ.

"I don't think they're gaining strength," Obama said of ISIS. "What is true, from the start our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq and in Syria they'll come in, they'll leave. But you don't see this systemic march by ISIL across the terrain."

They gained ground in Libya, Nigeria, Somalia, Yemen, Afghanistan. Will they soon get bayat from groups around the Sulu Sea?
