#2 My thought *exactly*, Bobby. Right down to the capitalization!
Hey, is Hans Blix still working for the UN?

#4 Prominent in the Wilayat Wasat Ifriqiya, or Central African wilayah are the two wings of ISIS-DRC and ISIS-Mozambique, as identified by the CIA. ISIS-DRC, led by Musa Seka Baluku, styles itself as the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) of Congo to escape the islamist tag.

#6  styles itself as the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) of Congo to escape the islamist tag.

I agree that they are definitely Islamist, Dron. I just am not aware of a functional connection with ISIS — cross-training with other ISIS groups, for instance — beyond a merely sentimental attachment in order to more effectively terrorize the unbelievers. There are apparently over 100 such groups in the region, many of them jihadi without being formally connected to anything more than the idea of their entitlement to pillage, plunder, and rape for the greater glory of Allah and the Ummah... and not working for a living, of course.

#7 Langley identified 'em as ISIS, TW, long before some islamophile in the UN decided to arrange for ease of mobility for daesh chapters with their 'report'.

US Department of State on ISIS affiliates

ISIS-DRC, also known as the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) and Madina at Tauheed Wau Mujahedeen, among other names, is responsible for many attacks across North Kivu and Ituri Provinces in eastern DRC. Under the leadership of Seka Musa Baluku, ISIS-DRC has been notorious in this region for its brutal violence against Congolese citizens and regional military forces, with attacks killing over 849 civilians in 2020 alone, according to United Nations reporting on the ADF.
