Any American choosing to fight for ISIS or any other such organization is committing treason against the United States. Supposing they are not killed first, if/when they return to the US, they should be arrested, charged and tried for that crime.

Instead, they become Jihadist and beheading people .it seems to me that US had made mistake to Somali resettle in US. we are facing a problem that Muslim community is become more radical and impose a threat to our security
