Daesh (ISIS) militants are using turmoil sown by Russian President Vladimir Putin's bombing in Syria to plot attacks against the United Kingdom and her allies, Britain's foreign intelligence chief said Thursday.In his first major public speech since winning the top job at the Secret Intelligence Service in 2014, MI6 chief Alex Younger said Russia and Bashar Assad were hindering the defeat of militants by attempting to make a "desert" out of Syria.A career spy who joined MI6 as the Soviet Union was crumbling, Younger said civil war in Syria was a major threat to the United Kingdom, which he said was facing an unprecedented threat from terrorism including 12 foiled plots since June 2013 .By inviting selected journalists to MI6's green and cream Vauxhall Cross headquarters for the first public speech by a serving Chief, or "C," Younger sought to cast one of the most secretive organizations on the planet as a diverse and dynamic spy service, which was hiring the best.
