Operation Inherent Resolve is the name given by U.S. Central Command to the ongoing U.S. military operations in Iraq and Syria against ISIS/ISIL, also known as the Islamic State. This unique, fully updated guide documents all aspects of this operation with comprehensive and authoritative information from renowned experts and government sources. The Islamic State is variously known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), AQI, and Daesh. The group - headed by terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi - is seizing substantial territory in Iraq as it attempts to fulfill its ambition of forming the first terrorist Islamic state. Terrorism experts are concerned that the group will pose a serious threat to American interests and security. On September 10, President Obama addressed the American public and announced what amounts to an ongoing war against ISIL. The efforts of the Department of Defense and State Department to implement the new policy is fully documented in this unique compendium, along with incisive commentary during House and Senate congressional hearings. There is also substantial information and commentary about the crisis in Syria, Iran's influence on Iraq, Turkish influence in the Levant, intelligence assessments, histories of the Iraq conflict and politics, and much more about this critical issue.
