In a Turkish town near the Syrian border, Holly Williams interviewed a former hairdresser who said he fought with ISIS, after initially joining the so-called moderate rebels. Like many other ISIS fighters, he's used the Turkish border with Syria to cross into the war zone.
Many Syrians have drastically changed their opinions of ISIS; while they once supported the terrorist group, they are now too frightened to speak out, and those that do, mention executions and beatings. Holly Williams reports.
For three years, the Turkish government has allowed fighters to stream into Syria, driven by its desire to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Though the government says it's never helped ISIS and considers it to be a terrorist group, ISIS and other Islamic militants took advantage of Turkey turning a blind eye. Holly Williams reports.
Some say the U.S. government could have done more to secure the release of American journalist James Foley before he was executed by Islamic militants. Others say giving terrorists millions in exchange for a hostage only makes them more powerful. Holly Williams reports.
