A major terror group,the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria or ISIS, has already taken control of Iraq's second largest city, Mosul, and is threatening to take Baghdad.

This group is so extreme, that even al Qaeda has distanced itself.

Time magazine calls the group's leader "the world's most dangerous man". Others say he's "the next bin laden."
