Ryan Mauro, director of the Clarion Intelligence Network and our Shillman Fellow, talks about the New Mexico Islamist compound, its relationship to Brooklyn Imam Siraj Wahhaj, the FBI’s delays in taking action against the location and how it could have become a Jihadist Waco. Mauro explains that Wahhaj is a leader of a radical network that includes groups involved in paramilitary training and radicalization of children.
