Transcript for Extreme Jihadists in Iraq
I want to bring in ABC's chief foreign correspondent terry Moran. He is on the ground in Iraq right now. Terry? Reporter: Diane, the people of Iraq and Syria have long known just how brutal Isis is. Their goal has been, in part, to take this whole part of the world back to a level of savagery not seen really since the middle ages. It is a way of them declaring who they are, just how extreme jihadists they are. And defeating them is going to take a tremendous amount of ert fort. This is not a shadowy group of hijackers and guys in caves. This is now a very well organized, well funded and well armed organization that stretches over two countries and governs a great deal of territory. They also now have the loyalty of many, many disenchanted Sunni muslims here. And so defeating Isis is going to be a long-term project that is going to take, frankly, a global effort. Diane? All right, terry Moran, again, he is in Iraq tonight and we'll keep you up to date on the authenticity of this vud owe aideo and what the response could be.
