Journalist Graeme Wood opens his article in the March issue of The Atlantic with these questions: "What is the Islamic State? Where did it come from, and what are its intentions?" In examining ISIS's philosophy, Wood writes, "The reality is that the Islamic State is Islamic. Very Islamic." We'll talk to Wood about the piece and get his response to critics who say he overstates ISIS's religious motivations.
