By the way, have you read that Russia overtook Saudi Arabia and Tunisia in being the largest exporter of ISIS fighters?

This story was carried by all Western media and by Arab oil and gas media: "Russia overtakes Saudi Arabia and Tunisia as largest exporter of ISIS fighters".   But how was that determined.  You know how that was determined? The Soufan group (run by former FBI expert, Ali Soufan) decided that Russia is now number one. How did the Soufan group decided that? It decided just like that to lower the number of Tunisian and Saudi fighters in the estimate which kicked Russia up in the list. I kid you not.  Does the Soufan group do consulting work for Gulf regimes, I wonder?
