Remember Jordan Matson? The Christian vet came across my radar screen, last October, soon after he joined the Kurds to fight ISIS in Northeastern Syria. Since then, hundreds of US military vets have flowed into the Middle Wast to fight ISIS with either the Kurds, or Christian militias in Iraq who are getting little to no support from the US government.
Matson has been fighting ISIS since September. His vest is inscribed with the words, “Christ is Lord.”
Matson spoke to Sean Hannity today from an undisclosed location in Syria. He explained that the tipping point for him was when Mosul fell to ISIS, and Christians were forced to flee or be killed.
“I decided if our government wasn’t going to do anything, I would,” he said of his decision to fight ISIS overseas.
Matson alleged that people are dying because of politics. He said that the Kurdish people stood by the U.S. for 10 years, and that people in the region just want to live in peace.
He said “we see contact every day.”
