Press reports say an American citizen has been picked up in Syria where he was fighting alongside ISIS, but the U.S. government apparently doesn’t know, or won’t say, much about it.
On Thursday morning, reporters at the Pentagon asked an American military spokesman to tell them about the U.S. citizen who was either captured by or surrendered to Syrian Democratic Forces, who are fighting ISIS in Raqqa and elsewhere in Syria.
“We have seen those same reports,” Col. Ryan Dillon, the spokesman for the U.S.-led military coalition, told reporters, live from Baghdad. Ryan said the SDF turns over any foreign fighters it captures to the “proper authorities.”
