If there is one small light from the horrors of the latest chapter of the Islamic civil war being played out in Iraq, it is that we now know the identities of all the volunteers from the UK who have joined ISIS, some 400 terrorists.
As the Guardian reports, a CIA-led kill mission against Abdulrahman al-Bilawi, the head of ISIS' military council in Mosul, undertaken shortly before the city was taken, captured memory sticks with extensive records of the organisation's finances, personnel, resources and organisation - including the identities of all foreign fighters. The data would then have have been swiftly transmitted to Langley, and then to our own security services on Millbank and Vauxhall. Added to the mass of our existing intel on the identities of UK Jihadis, and Sunni moslems missing from the dole queue or from their jobs, it must mean we now know the identity of every one of the 400 odd 'Britains' who have joined the ISIS butchers.
The question is, what are we going to do about it. Or rather, will the Home Secretary have the balls to put the safety of British citizens above the 'human rights' of the terrorists and exclude them from re-entering the UK? Let them stay in their new Sunni state - they deserve it.
