Mike Barnicle talks with investigative journalist Cam Simpson

Investigative journalist Cam Simpson, senior international correspondent for Bloomberg News and Bloomberg Businessweek, joins MSNBC’s Morning Joe and talks with Mike Barnicle about how U.S. intelligence dramatically underestimated oil revenue and other income to ISIS. “Who were the accessories, the accomplices, to ISIS in getting this oil out of Syria and Iraq and into the world?,” asks Mike. Listen to Simpson’s answer here on why ISIS doesn’t even have to get oil out of their territory to make money.
