German ISIS wife interview

CNN, German teenage ISIS wife wed at 15. Two children later she faces uncertain future

"Lemke's German husband survived the fighting and is now in the custody of the SDF. She insists he did not fight for ISIS but was merely operating the group's IT system, and that she was only a housewife.

"I do nothing. And my husband is not a fighter. He is just a technical guy. He operates laptops. He killed nobody," she said, but admitted following ISIS was a mistake. "But we are a part of it. We support them. We are living with them. That's when I realize: This is not good. I live here, I have my life, but we are part of the terrorizing, the killing of people.""
