Experts say, in a clear sign that al Qaeda is losing the ideological battle with ISIS, online forums once aligned with al Qaeda have switched allegiance to the more violent Islamic State. The forums include Osama bin Laden’s favorite chat room. Both terrorism experts and U.S. government officials say the trend is one of several “metrics” indicating al Qaeda has been stung by losses in leadership and prestige and is losing the internal war for loyalty among the most radical Islamists. The officials have seen al Qaeda operatives shift loyalties, as well.
