What happens to the American families of Islamic State fighters?

Sam El Hassani, an American woman from Indiana, said her husband tricked her into going to Turkey on a vacation in 2015.

“We ended up in Raqqa,” which was the declared capital of the Islamic State terrorist group, she said in an exclusive interview with Frontline and the BBC.

“’You’re crazy and I’m leaving,’” El Hassani said she told her husband, who replied, “’Go ahead. You can try, but you won’t make it.’”

Who cares?
