CNN: ISIS Using Wives in Operations to Escape US Intelligence

By    |   Monday, 08 Jun 2015 11:11 PM

Islamic State (ISIS) leaders may be giving their wives a bigger role in operations and communications because they don't think U.S. intelligence pays as much attention to them, CNN reports.

A U.S. Army commandos' raid last month in Syria killed senior ISIS leader Abu Sayyaf – and also captured his wife and a trove of information on the terror group's structure and communications.

But the International Business Times reports the terrorist's widow, Umm Sayyaf, has also been feeding U.S. investigators information about the group's operations.

Umm Sayyaf, an Iraqi citizen, held the rank of officer within ISIS and is suspected to have "played an important role" in various ISIS crimes including the torture and murder of American aid worker Kayla Mueller, the IBTimes reports.

"We are currently debriefing the detainee to obtain intelligence about [ISIS] operations," White House spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan tells the IBTimes. "We are also working to determine any information she may have regarding hostages – including American citizens who were held by [ISIS]."
