As France recovers from the ISIS attacks GLT's Charlie Schlenker talks with an American in Paris. Bloomington-Normal native Ryan Weisheit is a saxophonist with Sweet Megg and the Wayfarers, a retro jazz group touring in Europe right now.
An Illinois State University Political Scientist says the attacks in Paris say something significant about ISIS' deteriorating position. Professor Ali Riaz is the Chair of ISU's Department of Politics and Government. In this interview with GLT's Charlie Schlenker, Riaz says the Egyptian plane bombing, other bombings in the Mideast by ISIS, and now the assaults in Paris, show a shift to a strategy of asymetrical warfare.
Gov. Bruce Rauner says Illinois will temporarily stop accepting new Syrian refugees in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Paris. Rauner says Illinois will consider its legal options pending a review of U.S. Department and Homeland Security's acceptance and security processes.
Rauner is one of several U.S. governors who say they will stop allowing Syrian refugees into their states after Friday night attacks in Paris left at least 129 people dead.
