NY Times:

In Battle to Defang ISIS, U.S. Targets Its Psychology

Officials acknowledge they have barely made a dent in the larger campaign to kill the ideology that animates the terrorist movement.
There is a reluctance to really go after the ideology  behind radical Islam.  Instead, this administration seems to be in denial about the association with Islam, but there is little about its most extreme elements that is not tied to the wording and history of Islam.  Actually the Saudi clerics have been much more honest in their appraisal of the tenants of the Islamic State.
