White House Press Secretary: Trump Hopes to Have ISIS Member Captured By End of Week

NEW YORK – President Trump hopes to have an ISIS member in custody by the end of the week, according to NBC News.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said a military prison in Afghanistan is to be used to deliver the final blow to ISIS

President Trump has said he has a list of over 100 “high value” ISIS detainees in captivity that the administration hopes to have in custody by the end of the week, according to NBC News.

NBC News reported it is not clear when Trump’s desk will be filled with a hit list of its high value detainees, adding that for each possible capture, a decision about whether to launch a military operation to capture those suspects must be made.

To do that, U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) has reported vetting intelligence from allies in the coalition that sent special forces to capture ISIS fighters in Syria and Iraq as well as monitoring information from around the region.

The terror group is reported to have a leader named Abu Sayyaf who could become one of the captured detainees.

He was from Iraq, left the country with his family during the Saddam Hussein regime and hid there until he assumed the leadership of ISIS in Syria, NBC News reported.

“Why don’t we use something (mouthwash) like mouthwash to take out bombs. This can kill them!” said Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., on Twitter Thursday.
