Here, have a clue. Free of charge.

Everyone keeps referencing al-Qaeda when they talk about ISIS or ISIL.  Has it gone over their heads that comparing al-Qaeda, a terrorist group operating in small groups with no easily visible support or logistics train, with ISIS, a group that has grabbed territory, is collecting taxes from towns and people in it's area of operations, has seized operating oil wells and refineries and is trading oil on the OPEC markets, is seizing infrastructure like electricity, water as well as logistic points like ports and airfields, is consolidating borders and expanding them, have as much in common as apples and oranges?
