"These guys that are working down at Hurlburt (Florida), they're combing through social media. And they see some moron standing at this command and control capability for Da'Esh, ISIL.

I understand it has the word 'state' in it, but this article referred to this town in the same format it would say Tampa, FL.
I have only seen it as a name, not so clearly referred to as a place until now.

Da'esh is another name for ISIS.

Maybe they're just elaborating who they're talking about.

IS = Islamic 'state'

or is it a caliphate?

Either way... they should've been wiped out long ago...

As I read it, they are referring to ISIS and not a place.
The person used two different terms for the group so that people would not be confused.

Thank you. for pointing that out. I see it is even more complicated than that : The group is known in Arabic as ad-Dawlah al-Islāmiyah fīl-ʿIrāq wash-Shām, leading to the acronym Da'ish, Da'eesh, or DAESH (داعش, Arabic pronunciation: [ˈdaːʕiʃ]), the Arabic equivalent of "ISIL". wikipedia And we also have IS and ISIS.

IS stands for the Islamic State,
ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria
and
ISIL is the acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
