CIA Director John Brennan has admitted that the Islamic State terror group has grown by around 4,400 percent during President Barack Obama’s tenure in office, according to remarks delivered in a speech.
The Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) was “decimated” and had around “700 or so adherents left” during former president George W. Bush’s term in office, according to Brennan.
