Note that this analysis misquotes Ali as saying "There are a number of wars
taking place. There is the war in Syria between the embattled Assad regime
and the Jihadi groups. Al Qaeda on the one hand and his on the other." In
fact, however, Ali said (and I listened several times to the included
video): "There are a number of wars taking place. There is the war in Syria
between the embattled Assad regime and the Jihadi groups. Al Qaeda on the
one hand and ISIS on the other."

This error, however, doesn't change the fact that Ali is spouting nonsense.
