The U.S. military is taking control of two British men accused of participating in ISIS’s execution of several Western hostages, including Americans.
The men, Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh, are part of a group of four British terrorists known as the “Beatles” by the men they captured while fighting for ISIS. Kurdish forces were holding Kotey and Elsheikh in northern Syria, but the prisoners were transferred to U.S. authorities under the impending threat of a Turkish invasion.
The article goes on to state the following:
The other two members of their group included Mohammed Emwazi, or “Jihadi John,” who was killed 2015 in a drone strike, and Aine Lesley Davis, who was sentenced by a Turkish court to seven-and-a-half years in prison. The American hostages they killed include journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, as well as aid worker Peter Kassig.
The U.S. military intends to put Kotey and Elsheikh on trial in the United States. Elsheikh’s mother wants Elsheikh to stand trial in Britain in an effort to skirt the death penalty. She’s filed a lawsuit in British courts to “keep Elsheikh in his home country and block British authorities from sharing evidence against her son with U.S. prosecutors,” the Examiner reports.

Jeff Sessions was opposed to these types of terrorism prosecutions. I wonder if Barr will OK the prosecution of these 2 men who are suspected of kidnapping Americans who were tortured and beheaded. https://t.co/mhoIf4mnRP

A US official confirms that two of the British ISIS “Beatles” fighters have been transferred from SDF control to a safe location. Trump had said earlier today some of the most dangerous ISIS fighters had been taken out to different locations.
