A federal judge questioned Friday the U.S. military's plan to dump a U.S. citizen alleged to have joined Daesh (ISIS) back into the Syrian war zone, a plan his lawyers said equaled a death sentence.The Justice Department announced late Wednesday that U.S. forces were preparing to release the man, a dual U.S.-Saudi citizen identified only as "John Doe," into territory controlled by allied Syrian Democratic Forces as early as Saturday, after having held him as an alleged "enemy combatant" for nine months.The government first moved to transfer him to Saudi Arabia.But his lawyers persuaded the court to block that, arguing that the U.S. government has no right to summarily hand a U.S. citizen over to another government with no charges or extradition proceedings.
