ISIS Raked in $1 Billion in 2014

The Islamic State (ISIS) keeps making money [1]:

The Islamic State remains one of the most well-armed and well-funded terrorist groups in the world, raking in over $1 billion in revenues last year and capturing up to $50 billion in Iraqi weapons, according to a State Department security report.

“ISIL’s sophisticated military skill and brutality has been key to its success in Iraq and Syria,” states an Oct. 19 report by the Overseas Security Advisory Council.

“However, its ability to generate cutting-edge propaganda to promote its ideology and gain sympathizers and members across the globe, added to its largely self-reliant, robust financial system, has contributed heavily to its success as well.”
