On Monday, the Islamic State released a video of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi holding a meeting with three members in a traditional Arab home setting. It was Baghdadi’s first public appearance since he declared himself a caliph from the pulpit of an iconic 12th-century mosque in Mosul in the summer of 2014.
