American ISIS fighter killed

(NBC News) An American citizen has been killed in Syria while fighting for the terror group ISIS.

He has been identified as Minnesota native Douglas McAuthur McCain, an example of the kind of homegrown jihadist most feared by the U.S. government.

Addressing the American Legion in Charlotte Tuesday, President Obama had a message for the terrorists who executed American journalist James Foley.
