CNN reports: “The US has transported an American citizen who is alleged to have been an ISIS fighter back to American soil from Syria in order to face trial for his alleged involvement with the terror group, according to two US officials familiar with the matter.”
The ISIS member is one of some 2,000 foreign fighters held by the SDF from 50 countries. The SDF has asked the countries to take them back but most have refused, preferring they be a Syrian problem, not their own problem, despite having raised all these extremists.
The American is not the first to be brought back, some women and others have also been repatriated quietly. This appears to be one of the first ISIS fighters.
