Warren Christopher Clark sent a resume to ISIS volunteering to teach English in the caliphate capital.
The two Americans along with three other terrorists were planning a missile attack on innocent civilians when they were captured.
Clark was named in a George Washington University study as one of at least 64 Americans from 16 states who had traveled to Iraq and Syria since 2011 to join jihadist groups.
FOX News reported:
Two Americans were among five ISIS fighters recently captured in eastern Syria, according to a spokesman for the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.
The Americans were identified as Warren Christopher Clark (aka Abu Mohammad al-Ameriki) of Houston, and Zaid Abed al-Hamid (aka Abu Zaid al-Ameriki), originally from the U.S., but no specific location was reported.
Clark was identified in an NBC News report last February as an American who had sent his resume to ISIS, in hopes of joining the terror group.
“We are aware of open source reports of reportedly American citizens currently in custody who were believed to be fighting for ISIS,” Navy Cmdr. Sean Robertson, a Pentagon spokesman, told Fox News in a statement. “However, we are unable to confirm this information at this time. The incident is under investigation.”
