    What should be done to Americans caught being ISIS members by US Forces

    Sixty minutes is currently interviewing some London based scum bag who is a radical islamist who has been charged with recruiting for Isis and admitted to supporting jihad against the west. This report noted that one of the ISIS thugs who beheaded an unarmed western victim had a "london accent"

    what should be done to americans captured by US or allied troops fighting against ISIS?

    I personally think they should be killed on the spot- not captured.

    Hand them over to local authorities, without their citizenship of course.

    It's probably the only legal action. Is there a law in the US they could be charged with?
    I think I remember that it used to be that an American citizen who served in the armed forces of another country was in jeopardy of losing his citizenship. Is that true? Not that it's relevant in this case.

    I don't see how they would be spies unless they were working for our government and sending ISIS information.

    If an American were found fighting for ISIS inside, say, Iraq, he should be handed over to the Iraqis. It is their country.

    If an American is found inside the US actively assisting ISIS, then he should be prosecuted inside the US for assisting a criminal organization. What would we do with an American who was assisting one of the powerful drug cartels from inside the US?
