1. Hello everyone, I wanted to share what I learned from the more than 15,000 pages of ISIS documents that my team and I unearthed over five different trips to Iraq. We recovered the records in 11 different cities and towns. First up, how we found them.

Reports tonight suggest #ISIS has captured the town of al-Kawm (north of al-Sukhna, in #Syria's #Badiya) from the #Assad regime.

A number of #ISIS operations have been reported around Kobajeb, al-Shula & NE of al-Sukhna in recent weeks.

Important development here. First attack ever claimed by #ISIS in #Congo #DRC near the border with #Uganda. What is even more interesting is that it is claimed by a new ISIS province callled Central Africa province.

A worrying development: Today, ISIS’ Amaq News Agency claimed its first attack in Congo, saying that Islamic State fighters attacked Congolese soldiers at the Congo-Uganda border:

From Page 78 of the Mueller report: According to notes written by Hunt, when Sessions told the President that a Special Counsel had been appointed, the President slumped back in his chair and said, "Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I'm fucked ."

Just days before the arrest, a pro ISIS media group published a video calling for such an attack asking "Pero...Donde estás Oh Muwahid?" (But where are you Muwahid- monotheist?)

My working paper on displacement decisions during rebel governance, based on a survey of 1,458 residents of Mosul, finds that many initially perceived the quality of #ISIS governance in 2014 to be better-or at least "less bad"-than the Iraqi state https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3365503 … @rebgov

I’ve lost track of the number of candles I’ve lit at Notre Dame, the number of prayers uttered, the number of visits to sit in its pews. It *will* rise again, but my heart breaks at the images we have seen tonight.

As I told @rcallimachi and @adamgoldmanNYT, since the moment Louisa, Alaa and Nabil were taken, we have never stopped searching for them, and we will not stop nor give up hope. My wish is that someone, somewhere knows something that will help.

From the director general of the International Committee of the Red Cross. (May we all have employers who care so much about the well-being of their employees).

17. So last month, the @ICRC sent its president to Syria to visit Hol. One of his duties was to raise the Red Cross flag high among the tents, so that if she is there she can see it, and use it as a beacon. I sure hope she comes home soon.

16. The director general of @ICRC told @adamgoldmanNYT and I that they fear Louisa may be in Hol camp, which now has 70,000+ people, nearly all of them supporters of ISIS. They worry she is under pressure from the terrorist group, unable to come forward for fear of repercussions.
