The #NYT posts this org chart of “How ISIS works”. How on earth the reporters from the Gray Lady managed to verify this data is beyond me given that #ISIS seems to decapitate most western journalist that they come into contact with. Yet the piece of information they seem to have left out is in the description of the Two Deputies to the Calph of ISIS, Abu Baka al-Baghdadi. Surely they should add this statement: “One of these two men will have to step into the Calph’s leadership shoes when, out of nowhere, a USAF RQ-1 / MQ-1 Predator drone helps him meet his maker.” On the plus side, it is unlikely that this statement will need to be changed about the deputy’s replacement!
As the UK Prime Minister David Cameron awaits tomorrow's outcome of the most important non-war related vote on this Island in 300 years, perhaps he is thinking about raising the nation's threat level to “Critical Salmond”!
I think we should be told... :-)
The Disastrous Devo-Max Vow
South of the border we are disenfranchised as Scots vote whether to leave the #UK.
