President Trump announced the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi last Sunday, so Phil and Cooper give a long-overdue history of the Islamic State. Al-Monitor contributor Ali Hashem joins the podcast to give a look into the evolution of Baghdadi, from the days before he was radicalized, and how foreign wars and the Arab Spring shaped his strategy and ideology.
