TUNIS, TUNISIA- OCTOBER 23: The Tunisian flag flies at the Sidi Youssef Dey Mosque in Tunis. The clergy that preach there are known for their moderate views and don't condone the ISIS radical version

David Remnick talks with staff writer George Packer, who recently wrote about the banlieues of Paris. Packer explains why profiling potential ISIS members to prevent future attacks is so difficult, and why neither Russian involvement nor a stronger response from Obama is likely to resolve the crisis in Syria anytime soon.
