ISIS numbers severely underestimated

It seems like the CIA has underestimated ISIS numbers. Kurdish leaders believe that there are many more militants than the 31,000 the CIA proposed, more likely a number close to 200,000. The rapid movement and ability of ISIS troops have led many to believe that there are perhaps more soldiers than they were led to believe. It seems that they were able to quickly recuit muslim men from many places, and use them to bolster the numbers of their own.
