The Believer: A Short Bio of Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi

While IS and AQI are two different organizations with some pronounced ideological differences, this concise and well-written bio on Al-Baghdadi reminds us that IS is essentially an AQI offshoot.

Before he became the leader of IS, Al-Baghdadi was conducting terrorist operations in Iraq under the AQI umbrella.

I would like to get some perspectives on similarities and differences between AQ and IS. Are they really as far apart as some people think? Or are they merely working towards the same goals in (not so) different ways?
