    U.S. Says It's Slowing Flow, But Foreign Fighters Still Flock to ISIS

    FILE - This undated file image posted on a militant website on Jan. 14, 2014, which has been verified and is consistent with other AP reporting, shows fighters from the Islamic State group marching in Raqqa, Syria.

    For the first time since the U.S. began a massive bombing campaign against ISIS in Iraq and Syria in 2014, American officials say they have achieved some success in slowing the flow of foreign fighters streaming across the Turkish border into the group's self-declared caliphate.

    But U.S. intelligence officials tell NBC News the modest improvement hasn't significantly changed the strategic picture, despite the positive spin by a top general to reporters this week.
