So the group that could pose the greatest danger to America is Khorasan, a terror group whose leader Muhsin Al-Fadhli, used to live in Iran up until 2012, along other members of the Al-Qaeda, before finally relocating to Syria. Intelligence reports say that Al-Fadhli used to raise funds from various GCC donors, especially Kuwaitis, to help support Al-Qaeda affiliates in Syria.
And still, there are those geniuses out there who want the U.S. to cooperate with Assad and Iran to fight Al-Qaeda and ISIS. Ah, the matter of accommodating the lesser evil gets particularly complicated when one cannot even identify it.
But in truth, there is no lesser evil; there are just different priorities for different times, and different reasons for having these priorities. Today, and for reasons that may not become clear until much later, ISIS seems to be the priority. And today again, and far from the spotlight, the fight for defining tomorrow’s priorities is earnestly under way.
