"Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) personnel captured five foreign fighters of ISIS who were trying to target the civilians fleeing the terrorist group’s territory in the Middle Euphrates River Valley, the US-backed group announced in an official statement on January 6.
The foreign terrorists were identified as:
-34-year old Warren Christopher Clark, known as Abu Mohammad al-Ameriki, from Houston, U.S.;
-35-year old Zaid Abed al-Hamid, known as Abu Zaid al-Ameriki, from the U.S." SF

Any person convicted of treason against the United States will permanently lose the right to ever hold or run for public office anywhere in any capacity within the United States." wiki
These two men should be made an example of.
They should be transferred to US custody AFTER BEING MIRANDIZED. Do not interrogate them for intelligence in the field. If you do, you will risk invalidating evidence that can be admitted in an Article 3 US court. In the early post 9/11 confusion John Lindh was captured while incapacitated at mazar-i-sharif . He was eventually charged with a mish-mash of offenses and tried with evidence that had been contaminated by non judicial system contact with him when first captured. He is presently in federal prison but declares that he will return to the fight when released.
Let us not make the mistake again of making that possible. pl
