Long War Journal

Thomas Joscelyn & Bill Roggio

March 12, 2020

FDD’s Long War Journal is launching a new podcast, “Generation Jihad.”

Take a look around the globe today and you’ll see jihadists fighting everywhere from West Africa to Southeast Asia. They aren’t the dominant force in all of those areas, or even most of them. But jihadism has mushroomed into a worldwide movement, with al-Qaeda, the Taliban, ISIS and other groups waging guerrilla warfare and launching terrorist attacks on a regular basis.

Each week we’ll bring you a new story focusing on jihadism around the globe. These stories will focus not only on Sunni jihadism, but also Shiite extremist groups. We will also host guests who can provide their own unique perspectives on current events.

So, subscribe to “Generation Jihad” today.  You can find us on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, YouTube, or anywhere else you listen to your shows. Our first episode will be launching next week.

In a follow up to episode one, hosts Bill Roggio and Tom Joscelyn explain why wishful thinking in Afghanistan has led the U.S. to portray the Taliban as something it is not. True peace is not on the horizon. Meanwhile, Al-Qaeda views the U.S.-Taliban deal as a boon for the jihadists' cause. Al-Qaeda's affiliates are already attempting to use the agreement as a framework for gaining legitimacy elsewhere.

Hosts Bill Roggio and Tom Joscelyn profile Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula's (AQAP) new emir, Khalid Batarfi. They explain how Batarfi came to his leadership position, what's ahead for the group's local and global operations, and what AQAP can teach us about Al Qaeda's larger structure and the ambitions of jihadist insurgencies the world over.
