British IS recruiter Sally-Anne Jones 'killed by drone'

Source: BBC

British IS recruiter Sally-Anne Jones was reportedly killed in a US drone strike in Syria in June.

Jones, from Chatham in Kent, joined so-called Islamic State after converting to Islam and travelling to Syria in 2013. Her death was first reported by The Sun.

The BBC's security correspondent Frank Gardner said Jones had been a useful propaganda agent for IS on social media and her death would be "significant".

Whitehall officials have declined to comment publicly. However, they have not denied the story, and US sources are confident she was killed in an unmanned drone strike in June, our correspondent added.

2. Sally-Anne reminds me of the Mitford sisters who liked the Nazis back in the 1930's

6. Jessica Mitford didn't....

She was a Communist until about 1958. And wrote one of my favorite books, "The American Way of Death", slamming the US funeral industry.

5. Her 12 year old son also died in the US drone strike

The kid was about Barron's age. From what I've read, our European allies are considerably more hesitant to kill children.

7. Her son's death is her fault.

I tend to frown upon bringing my offspring to total war zones, but that's just me I guess.

12. Really hope this is true

I have so little sympathy for western women who run to join this savage cult. While millions of middle eastern women have little to no choice in their life choices, these fucking morons give up everything that so many women in other countries could only dream of having, to join an organization that rapes and tortures other women. Fuck her.

13. Wives and widows have elevated status, perks, and sometimes power and influence

for folks who are wondering why women would voluntarily join these misogynist assholes other than mental illness. There were western teenage girls who paid their own ways to go over there to marry "charming gentlemen" they met on social media. There was a story of one introverted white teenager in the US who was thwarted by the FBI while booking her flight. They're going there to be some asshole's wife.
