    Why can't he just be granted ISIS "citizenship"?
    After all, they claim to be the caliphate, therefore he is now a citizen of the caliphate.

    This British man also has Canadian citizenship and Canada worries that Jack Letts will be sent to Canada. Probably Jack is already fluent in Arabic and familiar with the Muslim culture. Jack will be comfortable with living in Syria, if he is ever released from the Kurdish prison in northern Syria as he said: "I thought I was leaving something behind and going to something better."

    A statement on behalf of Canada's public safety minister Ralph Goodale's office said: "Terrorism knows no borders, so countries need to work together to keep each other safe.

    "Canada is disappointed that the United Kingdom has taken this unilateral action to off-load their responsibilities."

    Canada added that it was aware some Canadian citizens were being detained in Syria, but there was "no legal obligation to facilitate their return".

    "We will not expose our consular officials to undue risk in this dangerous part of the world."

    In an interview with the BBC's Quentin Sommerville, Mr Letts said: "I know I was definitely an enemy of Britain."

    After being pressed on why he left the UK to join the jihadist group, he said: "I thought I was leaving something behind and going to something better."

    Well, it isn't an ideal solution when the UK passes us the hot potato but send him to Canada and we'll have to deal with him. Try him for terrorism and should that fail make a case for preventative detention and a very long programme of very thorough deradicalisation. Send back the other dozen or so Canadian jihadis, any Canadian jihadi-wives or any children with a claim to Canadian citizenship being illegally interned in the ME and we will clean up our own nationals' messes. That the UK and other European states can't or won't be bothered to clean up is shabby and shameful. Will bill the defense budget for the costs.

    Cheers.

    The real shame is that these people survived the war. There should never have been the question of ISIS survivors who want to come back to the west.

    exactly my previous point.

    That I'd be all for having these freaks shot on the spot of apprehension being the luxury that the right to private opinion affords me.

    But not absolving me from addressing the bigger picture of whole states shirking their responsibility at the cost of others.

    All legal for sure, but disgusting nevertheless.
