American Jihadi Killed in Syria Fighting, White House Says
Douglas McAuthur McCain, a 33-year-old rapper, was among several ISIS militants the Free Syrian Army claimed on Twitter had been killed over the weekend in fighting for the ancient Syrian city of Aleppo. Caitlin Hayden, a spokesperson for the White House National Security Council, said the administration was “aware” McCain was in Syria and “can confirm” his death.
“We continue to use every tool we possess to disrupt and dissuade individuals from traveling abroad for violent jihad and to track and engage those who return,” Hayden said.
This is too major of a story to merely be referenced in one of the threads.
Significant too is the battle in which he was killed was against the Free Syrian Army not against the Syrian Government.
I read one story with some of his facebook postings, he himself seemed passionate and not that “evil”, we are hearing about the evil ISIS is doing and if they are doing these things, yes it is evil. A lot of their men are getting killed as well. Sad, that foreigners who go to fight in ISIS may well be fodder.
