BOSTON (CBS) – The terrorist group ISIS has dominated the news this week, after they posted the horrific video of American journalist James Foley’s execution online for the world to see. Officials at the Pentagon have said the group represents an unprecedented threat, and that they are extremely well organized and funded. Today, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security sent a bulletin to law enforcement officials around the country, warning them to be on the lookout for ISIS sympathizers looking to retaliate within the United States. Lawrence Korb, Georgetown professor and Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, joins NightSide to discuss the situation.
