"Two Americans have been captured among a group of five ISIS fighters in eastern Syria, according to a spokesperson for the Syrian Democratic Forces.

Identified as Warren Christopher Clark of Houston, Texas and Zaid Abed al-Hamid – also originally from the US, but of a location not yet released – the pair were seized alongside other foreign fighters from Pakistan and Ireland.

Their capture came as part of Operation Jazeera Storm, a ploy to decimate the Islamic State's last foothold in northern Syria, according to a statement from the Kurdish-led Syrian Democatic Forces…."

Why do they "capture" them?? That has always puzzled me.

Leave them with the Kurds to get intel then dispose of the bodies. They are traitors IMHO

Execute them.

Beheading sounds very good in this situation. I do not believe the Kurds signed the Geneva Accords.

I don't think we will be doing any trades to get them back.

I agree Skip, et al.

I thought ISIS members were "true believers" willing to die for their cause.

Seems the cachet is wearing off.

Aren't they de facto traitors?

At least historically, the Kurds aren't executing pows and are a bit annoyed when western nations won't take their nationals back (to try them at home, of course).
