This is the April 12, 2016 hearing on "The Spread of ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq and Syria] and Transnational Terrorism," held before the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. From the opening statement of Bob Corker: "Today we look forward to hearing your thoughts on the spread of ISIS and transnational terrorism. Tragically, last year saw attacks that were supported or inspired by ISIS in Paris, Turkey, Beirut, Egypt, San Bernardino, and Brussels and even in my hometown of Chattanooga. Simultaneously dozens of groups around the world have claimed some affiliation with ISIS. I hope our witnesses can comment on how many of these organizations have real ties to ISIS headquarters in Raqqa and how many are simply attracted to the brand." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Graeme Wood, Matthew Levitt, and Matthew G. Olsen.
