Report: Syrian forces kill American, British citizen accused of fighting alongside rebels
CNN ^ | 5-30-13 | Chelsea J. Carter, Hamdi Alkhshali and Paul Courson,

Posted on 05/30/2013 4:04:25 PM PDT by dynachrome

Syrian state-run television reported Thursday that forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad killed three Westerners, including an American woman and a British citizen, who they claim were fighting with the rebels and were found with weapons and maps of government military facilities.

Syrian TV identified the woman, releasing what it claimed were images of her Michigan driver's license and U.S. passport. It also released what is said was the name and passport of a British citizen. It did not identify a third person who it claimed was a Westerner.

They’d just come back here and jihad, so good riddance.

She had a Michigan driver’s license? Probably from Dearbornistan.

Syrian rebels are disturbingly misogynistic... they would do little more with a foreign female other than rape her, circumcize her vagina, and wire her up for a suicide bomb run.

What the hell are real Americans doing fighting on the side of Al Qaida and bearded muslim fanatics?

Why should I care for them if they chose to stick their stupid noses into a minefield where they had no business whatsoever?

Is this an attempt by the Obamunists to drag us into some stupid Jihad?

I can’t find it again but I just read something the other day “warning” that Arab Christians would likely surpass muslims in the Detroit area within a few years.

We’ve got no business there.

Or anywhere else outside of our borders.

The entirety of the middle east (and europe) isn’t worth the skin on the little finger of one American.

Well isn't that convenient. Just as Bambi is starting to beat the war drum, a citizen gets killed.

I think we should be arming both sides and let them fight to the last man.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. It’s not a surprise that fighting to put terrorists in power did not work out well for these people, and I don’t care if they’re American if they are helping terrorists.

I doubt this woman was a Christian, as the only thing standing between Christian genocide in Syria is the Assad regime. Loathesome as Assad is, he did not persecute Christians; in fact, Middle East Christians were better off in Syria under Assad than they were in most other ME countries.

No, probably a muzzie or she wouldn’t be there. I’m just noting that the demographic in the area appears to be shifting.

I’ll pay for airline tickets if more muslims went over there to die.

Someone online posted this:

“Mylife has a Nicole Lynn Mansfield Carpenter, 33, born in 1980, living in Guaynabo, PR.”

I wonder is that’s the same person.

We should offer free tickets to Syria for any Muslim in the US who wants to go, whichever side the want to fight on. One way, of course.

Syrian forces kill American... citizen... fighting alongside rebels...

Can't be. Any person fighting alongside Syrian rebels *might* have once been an American, but that's as far as I'll go...

Clearly, they've renounced any prior citizenship, and took on (or reverted to) another one.
