ISIS launches online propaganda to recruit foreign fighters

As ISIS – the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria continues their offensive against Iraq's Shiite-led government, militants are looking for new recruits online. Radical Sunni militants recently published a recruiting video, featuring a number of young Jihadists, claiming to be from Britain and Australia -  who are joining the battle. It was part of a major social media campaign of tweets and facebook postings. Anderson speaks with Majid Nawaz, who now fights such efforts. He's a former jihadi himself and author of, "Radical: My Journey out of Islamist Extremism"
