LOL: U.S. plans to return American ISIS suspect to Syria with $4,210, new cellphone and clothes he had when he was picked up

From the Washington Post:
U.S. military officials plan to release an American citizen accused of supporting the Islamic State “under safe conditions,” and with $4,210 and a new cellphone near the Syrian town where he was first captured in September, according to a new filing Thursday in the unusual case. 
The intended release would be done over the objections of the man, who has been held without charges in U.S. military custody in Iraq. 
The American Civil Liberties Union, which has been representing the man, will ask a federal judge in Washington to block the action, which it condemned as “disgraceful” and a de facto “death warrant.” 
U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan scheduled a hearing on the government plan for Friday morning. The cash is the same amount the man was carrying when he was taken into custody, the government said. 
The details of the government’s plans for the man, identified in filings as John Doe, came in an affidavit from a Defense Department official, who described the release as “traditional military practice that is employed in the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility” and consistent with the military’s “obligations under the law of war.”

Be careful what you wish for - they demanded that Gitmo be emptied and closed down. Now they object to 'catch and release'.
