(Worthy News) - September marks the first anniversary of the U.S. war against the Islamic State group (ISIS), but American efforts are showing little success, NBC News reported on Sunday.
Turkey's recent permission for airstrikes and drone missions to be based there was "a huge tactical gain," NBC's Richard Engel reported on "Meet the Press," but added, "ISIS doesn't seem to be shrinking."
Engel quoted one U.S. officials as saying the terror group's international branches are "growing like crazy," spreading North and West Africa, Arabia, Afghanistan and into the Far East.
"ISIS has expanded far more quickly and extensively than Al Qaeda ever did," Engel said. [ Source ]
