VIDEO ISIS leader purportedly delivers sermon in Iraq & ISIS ties to Mexican drug lords
ISIS ties to Mexican drug lords – Expert warns Middle East turmoil could sting U.S.
BAGHDAD – A video posted online Saturday purports to show the leader of the Islamic States of Iraq and Syria/Levant extremist group that has overrun much of Syria and Iraq delivering a sermon at a mosque in Iraq, in what would be a rare — if not the first — public appearance by the shadowy militant.
The video was released on at least two websites known to be used by the group, but it was not possible to independently verify whether the person shown was indeed the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. It bore the logo of al-Furqan, the group’s media arm.
