Head of CIA John Brennan says ISIL attacks are directed or orchestrated in the Syria-Iraq theater

WASHINGTON —  The head of the Central Intelligence Agency John Brennan said on Wednesday there was still “a ways to go” before significant progress could be claimed against the Islamic State group’s ability to propagate its narrative and incite attacks.

Brennan, speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations think tank, said that most of the militant group’s attacks are directed or orchestrated by the group’s external operations cell in the Syria-Iraq theater.
