The U.S. military has taken custody of a pair of notorious ISIS fighters connected to the torture and execution of Western hostages at the hands of the British-born ISIS quartet known as “The Beatles.”
Both scumbags were being held by Syrian Democratic Forces before Turkey’s invasion of Kurdish-held northeast Syria.
On Thursday, President Donald Trump confirmed reports by the Washington Post, CNN, and other media outlets that the United States had moved Dipshit 1 and Dipshit 2 out of Syria in case the Kurds lost control of the tens of thousands of ISIS prisoners currently rotting away in prisons across the country.
“They are the worst of the worst,” Trump described the two British terrorists, whom the Washington Post identified as Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh.
The U.S. military is holding both men in a secure location pursuant to the laws of war, a defense official told Task & Purpose.

Kotey and Elsheikh were originally part of a group of four British-born ISIS fighters that included Mohammed Emwazi, the executioner who brutally murdered American journalist James Foley, Army veteran Peter Kassig, American-Israeli journalist Steven Sotloff, and several other hostages before he was dispatched by a drone strike in 2015, according to the Washington Post.
Now that Turkey has invaded northeastern Syria, Kurdish fighters are concerned that Turkish shelling and organized jailbreaks could end up compromising the prison camps holding ISIS fighters and their families.
ISIS Führer Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi — living proof that birth control should be retroactive – has called on his minions to storm Kurdish prison camps and free those held there. ISIS successfully broke out hundreds of fighters in Iraq prior to its major successes in 2014.
Making matters worse, the Turkish military has reportedly shelled a Kurdish prison holding “the most dangerous criminals from more than 60 nationalities,” Kurdish officials told Reuters.
“This is like a victory for the ISIS fighters,” Dianne Foley, mother of James Foley, told the Washington Post. “I just think it’s appalling. It’s an abdication of our responsibility to ensure safety for our own citizens and allies.”
