Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said on Sunday the U.S. government is tracking 100 Americans who are in the Middle East fighting alongside ISIS.
The State Department confirmed in May that a U.S. citizen from Florida launched a suicide bombing for ISIS against Syrian government troops this year. Moner Mohammad Abusalha of South Florida was identified as the alleged suicide bomber in Syria, according to the New York Times. Abusalha was from Ft. Pierce, Florida but traveled to Syria late last year with a group of Americans.
