Islamic State 'Beatles' in court over US hostages' deaths

"Fighters have been charged in U. S Federal Court for the deaths of four American citizens in Syria. Widely reported killings happened six years ago. But it was just today that Alexander Coty and El Shafie L shake were extradited from Iraq to the US so they could stand trial. The world Sharon Jafar has been following the events today for us. What can you tell us? You're in about the charges he's manner facing. Well, Michael with these two men have now being charged the SYRIZA felony offenses unofficial at the Department of Justice today without the charges. Conspiracy to commit hostage taking, resulting in death. Hostage taking, resulting in death. One count for each of the American hostages. James and those Americans Marco are James Foley, Steven Sotloff, Kayla Mueller and Peter Kassig, who were aid workers and journalists in Syria when the Islamic state was operational in the country, and you might remember Marco the gruesome videos off the beheadings that came out at the time. It was really shocking and terrible. Those were horrific videos. What have you heard from the families today? Sharon. I reached out to the family of James Foley, The journalist who was tragically beheaded in Syria on the representative for the family told me that they are inundated with media requests today, but they have put out a statement saying that they welcome these charges on the fact that these men are facing justice in American court. It's been six years since these American citizens were killed in Syria. Why did it take so long to bring these men to the U. S? Well, First of all, it was very difficult to find and capture. These men remember, Syria was in the middle ofthe war. It still is. And these men were captured by Kurdish forces in northern Syria in 2018, and then since then, they've been transferred to Iraq and they were held in U. S military custody in Iraq, but the US couldn't just extradite them because they are British citizens. How did that complicate matters? The British government said it won't cooperate with the U. S. Unless it rules out the possibility of giving these men that death penalty. Here's how Bruce Hoffman, with the Council on Foreign Relations, explained it to me. The United States indicated that if Coty and I'll Shaffi, I'll share Were brought to the United States, They would face the death penalty. Of course, the United Kingdom abolished the death penalty some decades ago. And generally will not extradite persons to other countries where they have the potentiality of facing death. Then what happened? Marko was the attorney General William Board said Fine, We won't seek the death penalty and just hand these guys over and that's how they ended up here in the U. S. Now, I should mention that if convicted, thes men could face life in prison. Sure Intel us more about these two men. Who are they? And what do we know about how they ended up with Isis in Syria? Thes. Two men lived. Invest London and a few years ago, they decided to travel to Syria and join the Islamic state. They ended up being part of a group of four men, all from the UK who allegedly kidnapped, tortured and killed foreigners in Syria. Their captives gave them the nickname the Beatles because they all spoke with British accent. On as to what happened to the other two members of this group. One of them was killed in an air strike in 2015, and another one is in prison in Turkey. So these air two men could these cases serve as precedents for prosecuting more Isis fighters in U. S courts. I had the same question, and I called up Matthew Levitt to get his take his director of the Reinhardt program on counterterrorism at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. There've been many cases in U. S court involving significant terrorism trials. There has not been a case quite like this. That is involved the kind of brutal not just kidnapping but murder beheading of American citizens. The use of footage from those murders in terrorist propaganda of the type that has been seen around the world. Michael Levitt also pointed out that this required a lot of cooperation between different countries. And it just goes to show just how important these corporations are to bringing Islamic state criminals to justice.

booby trapped and the there was something there was something really amazing to see I got to watch it along with a general Millie vice president pence others in the situation room and we watched it so clearly have you watched what I don't want to say how but we had absolutely perfect as though you are watching a movie it was that was that at the technology there alone is is really great a big part of the trip that was of great danger was the it was approximately an hour and ten minutes flight I we're flying over very very dangerous territory in fact some of our leaders said that that could be the most dangerous flying in and flying out and that's why last night we were so quiet about it we didn't say anything and I didn't make my remark on till after they had landed safely in a certain area but the the flight and the flight out was a very very dangerous part there was a chance that we would have met unbelievable fire Russia treated us great they opened up we had a fly over certain rush areas Russia held areas Russia was great Iraq was excellent we really had the great cooperation and you have to understand they didn't know what we were doing and where we were going exactly but the ISIS fighters are hated as much by Russia and some of these other countries as they are by us and that's why I say they should start doing a lot of the fighting now and they'll be able to I really believe they'll be able to yes Jennifer they gave us not as a military role at all but they gave us some information that turned out to be helpful the Kurds Turkey we dealt with them if they know we

Islamic State leader leaves a legacy of terror

"This is All Things Considered from NPR news I'm Michelle Martin we're gonna begin this hour with that major announcement today from president trump in the morning press conference at the White House the president announced that the leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al Baghdadi had been eliminated that was trumps work only Daddy was one of the world's most wanted figures he was killed and his Syrian safe house by US commander rate we can have several conversations about this about who al Baghdadi was and what this means for the region we're going to start with NPR's Daniel Estrin in Beirut and national security correspondent Greg my re here in our studios in Washington DC and Greg I'm going to start with you let's first start with the details the timeline of the operation president trump gave a vivid cinematic description of what happened here he said eight American helicopters went into this small village they land they don't go into the front of this compound they blast through the walls the interest they track down al Baghdadi and the president says that how Baghdadi has a suicide vest and three kids with them he detonates this killing himself killing the kids no American casualties except for a military dog I think the number of people have been struck by the level of detail that the the president you know offer here including descriptions of what he claims were up and down his last moments did that strike you as a person is cover these issues for sometime was it unusual for that kind of announcement beyond unusual actually quite remarkable I mean this would all fall into the category of classified top secret information for him to just come out and riff and take questions on this providing this this granular level of detail was quite striking and then his defense secretary came on it was mark espera was much more tight lipped about the whole operation today I let me turn to you what's been the reaction in the region I mean you're in Lebanon at the moment and but if you've been following this throughout the region including in Syria what's been the reaction there we've been hearing a whole mix every action from inside Syria we spoke with the researcher in the city of Rucka he's been researching ISIS crimes in the city when isis was there and he says this is a moment of celebration you know trump gave a list of the victims of ISIS you mentioned American journalists humanitarian aid workers killed Christians killed disease killed but actually most of isis is victims were Muslims and just in Syria alone approximately six thousand civilians were killed by ISIS so Syrians civilians I feel very strongly about this man but there is a lot of skepticism this researcher the Syrian man we spoke with thought the US had its own interests in killing Baghdadi he said the US wants to grab Syrian oil which we heard trump's speak about we're also hearing from many Syrians who are skeptical that apple buckle but Daddy actually died they've heard several times before in the past that he had died turned out to be fake news they say we haven't seen the pictures how do we know for sure and we also reached a few Syrians in in live but the city where I'll Doug Daddy was reportedly given safe haven and was targeted living there seems very careful with their words or didn't want to speak at all and they could be scared of retribution from ISIS so Daniel the president thanked many countries in his announcement starting with Russia and Turkey then including Syria and Iraq the Syrian Kurds as well but in that order and that was striking to a number of people what about that I mean does that show that the Kurds are still important players in fighting the extremist threat despite president trump's decision to back away from well it's a very interesting to hear how the the STF the Kurdish led forces in Syria have been speaking about what happened today first of all their top commander said that they had been tracking Abu Bakr al Baghdadi is movements and location for the last five months that they were part of the intelligence cooperation in planning for the US to nab about Daddy but that that operation was delayed by a month because of the recent Turkish offensive after we heard that about Daddy was killed they praise the operation they said it was a joint Curtis U. S. operation just days ago though we heard from the top commander they were very upset with Donald Trump for withdrawing US troops and leaving them exposed to a Turkish offensive what Greg this comes at a time when a standard just point out the president's pulling US troops out of Syria putting a stop to what he has called endless wars it is there a contradiction in US policy then between wanting to destroy ISIS and other terror groups overseas but still wanting to bring US forces home I mean is there a contradiction US policy a fundamental contradiction that's existed throughout the the president's time in office we're going to hit all of these groups whether it's ISIS of the Taliban or al Qaeda but it's time to bring Americans home and the president seem not bothered by this contradiction today he said we we carried out a very successful operation in Syria and yes we're still bringing the troops home he seem to see it as as so you see we can do both while critics are already saying no you can't this was an operation that required a special operators in the US working with Kurds and you want to leave an area of the intelligence goes cold very quickly so you you can't really have it both ways you can stay and fight or you can leave but hard to do both before we let each of you go I do want to hear from each of you on this what is the strategic significance of the death of opportunity right the death of al Baghdadi does not end ISIS we've learned that time and again when the leaders of terrorists groups are killed however you should also look at the number of things that have happened in the past couple of years ISIS has lost its territory it's lost its revenue streams it no longer has recruits flowing in and now they've lost a very important leader this group is not dead they still have lots of fighters out there but they are in no way organized the way that they were so they've been greatly weakened but they still exist Daniel what about you it's true that ISIS isn't dead it exists in many different permutations and groups across the region and finally the city it live is a place where we're hearing many ISIS operatives fled to that area after the fall of the ISIS territorial caliphate and the question is will they be able to regroup there that was and personally scar Spahn Daniel Estrin in Beirut and national security correspondent quick Myrick here in our studios in Washington DC thank you both so much for talking to us my pleasure thanks we're going to turn now to someone whose life was directly affected by Abu Bakr al Baghdadi and the rise of ISIS James Foley was an American journalist covering the civil war in Syria in two thousand twelve he was captured in northern Syria by ISIS and held captive for nearly two years then in two thousand fourteen he was killed in a gruesome manner beheaded in what would become something of a signature of the Islamic state he was the first American to be killed by ISIS in his honor and name his mother I am fully created the James W. fully legacy foundation which advocates for the safe return of American hostages abroad and protection of journalists and she's with us now from her home via Skype thankfully thank you so much for speaking with us today my pleasure we shop how are you reacting to today's events well we're very grateful my shall we have to be I am very grateful to president trump our intelligence community and the military for fall waiting and finding al Baghdadi and stopping him our he obviously wanted to continue to regroup and continue his reign of terror so it is a blow to isis and I'm very grateful we had there US troops in country to make that happen ask you though today what does this does this bring up anything for you I mean I know what you know the word closure is so controversial people think it's some people think it's ridiculous some people think it it actually kind of capture something or says something does the death of this person who who because your son's death does this bring anything for you does it and anything for you does that term what what is it bring up for you well it protects others from whatever he was planning to do start money the thing that would bring me the most solace is does ISIS fighters who have been captured I would like them to be brought to trial and the federal criminal court here in the U. apps I'm grateful that two alleged Jack hottest Cody and I'll shake our impact in US custody and I'm hoping they'll be brought to trial but there are thousands of others and I feel it's very important that the international community hold them responsible by bringing them to trial and if convicted put away for the rest of their lives how do you hope the elder Jerry might be captured alive so that he could face trial yes he would have been able to answer so many questions but it appears he detonated himself he didn't want that to happen so he wanted to be a martyr for his because I'm sure so obviously that would have been the past the more we can take into custody and bring to trial the better however as you can see from there and present is that it's hard to find the will to bring them to trial and there's a lot of blocks in that regard but I feel that is necessary to actually stop terrorism is to bring these folks who inflicted such terror to try and hold them accountable for their horrific Dietz we let you go how does this how does the work of the fully foundation proceed does the does al Baghdadi is death affect the work of the foundation in anyway well anytime we can capture people who are from loading hostage taking which he surely wise that is a win he wives using human victims to inflict yes terror on the country and the citizens in that area so yes of course that's a help I would just or that our administration might give a higher priority to innocent Americans when they first taken hostage to maybe hopefully prevent some of that horrific crime so but I I certainly applaud today's victory and it is a victory for the free world was stand for Lee she's the president and founder of the James to be fully legacy foundation she's the mother of the slain US journalist James Foley who was killed by ISIS in two thousand fourteen she was with us today via Skype painfully thank you so much for talking with us thank you so much for

accomplished the US personnel were incredible I got to watch much of it no personnel were lost in the operation well a large number of Baghdad is fighters and companions were killed with him he died after running into a dead end title whimpering and crying and screaming all the way the compound had been cleared by this time with people either surrendering or being shot and killed eleven young

It's another thing when the bodyguard undermines freedom of press on behalf of that freedom the press advocate so what will be different in the future. We'll there'd be something different in the future. It sounds like the bodyguards longer working for you so that's one thing that'll be different. Well you know as long as it's atmosphere continues brian. I'm going to have to have <hes> but the protocol is that the body is supposed to be with me and that was not gonna call because he left because he left to go allegedly assault the candidate the journalists you're saying you didn't follow what was going on at the time right new orleans room when he did that about labrum i was i was speaking so and at the very least i'm for those real journalists who are saying things that they're saying. I would hope that they may be a correction for the air that you know. Some of the things have been said. Isn't it concerning though that you're out there speaking privately the you know i remember when i was giving a speech at a college and a couple of info wars reporter showed up and they were asking them to questions. I decided the best thing to do was just to talk to them rather than try to ignore them or swat away their camera because that's not our job. Our job is not to stop people from asking questions if questions right and see that's the issue <hes> if someone asked for permission granted but sometimes your words are twisted by people people who don't necessarily understand you what you're saying or who have an agenda and that kind of thing can charge the atmosphere to create hate against it's to me and death threats so that is one of the reasons.

"In other words, people have to die. That's difficult because every kidnapping cases different. So it's not simply not always possible. And if that were the policy, I think the only country in the. In the world that's had a policy cluster that is Israel. Then the the people in the country have to tolerate losing more hostages, and I'm not so sure we're, we can do that. And I'm not also not sure we should so. Okay. Interesting. So yes, so making it more costly for them might alleviate the problem if could never died on a regular basis when they tried to capture Americans and word would get around, but but simple statements from men in suits from behind the State Department podium that doesn't work. The US government may decide not to pay ransoms, but can they tell families and companies not to pay a ransom maker, an American citizen, they cannot, yeah, there was some, but profit motive out of it necessarily in the well, right. I mean, if a family still has the right to to raise it privately, and there was some confusion about that in in the Obama White House or really when James Foley was a hostage. In fact, somebody from, I've forgotten his name at the moment, but somebody. From the Obama White House actually called up the fully family and and told them that because Foley was in the hands of terrorists and not just criminals that paying the ransom would have been material support for terrorism them that might be that might be true, but it's not something that the US government normally gets in the way of and and that was that that person wound up leaving his job. That's really not US policy that never has been now in the almost three years that you were in captivity. What do you suppose with the biggest lesson that you took them all this? Oh, gosh. The the most interesting thing is that you know, we, we like to think that hope is somehow necessary to move forward and a few live without hope. Why do you live at all? That's not true. So I, I had to actually live apart from that cycle of hope and despair because that cycle was getting to be very psychologically dangerous forming. So.

"It's it's a leafy that would have been forbidden, but only forbidden smoking cigarettes would have been forbidden. Listening to music would have been forbidden and muscle molly's, like all that stuff. Yeah, no pirates in particular. But a cut addiction is also very detrimental in very expensive, but it's a little bit like chewing, I dunno, coca leaf or something. It gives you, it gives you a high and then it depresses you asleep and then you wake up and do it again. And you had to live in fear of a worse fate. The possibility of being sold to al-shabaab was that just an idle threat. Or where those transactions common between pirates and al-shabaab they weren't common. I think at first it was an idle threat, and I think the calculation changed a little bit when Islamic state's started to behind it, behead Americans Syria. So I heard about James Foley on the radio when it you know a day after he was killed. I happen to have a shortwave radio then. And my one of my guards came up to me and said, you know, James Foley said, I know I heard he said, well, that's not gonna happen to you. But as it happens from what I hear among al-shabaab members who wanted to turn towards IS normally they're affiliated with Al Qaeda, but there was a faction that was interested in sort of aligning with high s. my price went up so they knew that there is an American in Somalia. And conceivably, there was a faction of al-shabaab people who were suddenly willing to pay a little bit more for me. So that was actually, I wasn't aware of those details while I was a hostage. But that. Was suddenly a risk. And so if the ransom didn't come through, there was a possibility that these guys would have paid a pretty penny for you a possibility. It would be a media triumph for them to be able to behead you on telev-. Exactly. Then I would have been a prisoner. All of a sudden Sierra, instead of that's right. As weeks turned into months and even years. Did you ever begin to worry that they would just at some point, cut their losses and kill you? Yeah, sure. I, I mean, that's not normally how pirates work, but right, but after two or three years I was worried about, I mean, it was taking so long. I was worried that they were just gonna sell me to some other group. They were going to kill me by accident. So that does happen. How explain that? Oh, well, so the the ship that I was held on had been hijacked. I think in March two thousand twelve, I was captured a couple of months earlier when we finally wound up on board as prisoners, along with the rest of the crew. A month later the the first thing the crew told us was that the captain had been shot dead by pirates had been shot. He'd been shot dead by Pires, shooting wildly at the bridge. So it was an accident. He wasn't. He wasn't executed by prior to August shot by accident, and the happens. You have all these pirates sitting around with nothing to do all hopped up on Kat. Exactly. I mean, those things probably do happen glistening off in their hand, not not really very difficult..
