Trump Is Right to Delegate on Defense

Peter Bergen was quoted in an article by Commentary Magazine about ISIS control:

As I have previously written: “Gen. John W. Nicholson Jr., commander of the international military force in Afghanistan, noted in early February that the government is in control of only about two-thirds of the population. As the terrorism analyst Peter Bergen points out, this means that the Taliban either ‘control or contest’ ‘a total of around 10 million people, which is more than the population that ISIS controlled in Syria and Iraq at the height of its power during the summer of 2014.’ ”
