In fact, the walls outside the communal kitchen are hung with 15 large black-and-white photographs. Based on her own interviews with ISIS defectors like this year old girl and jailed recruits, Green launched the Redirect Method , a new deployment of targeted advertising and video aimed at confronting online radicalization and stopping kids like this from joining the ranks of terrorist groups.
