Woman Seized in Anti-Isis Raid Poses Policy Problems for US

The US has still not revealed its intentions for its first high-profile Islamic State detainee, two days after the Umm Sayyaf was taken captive in Syria.
The woman, whom the US described as the wife of Isis member Abu Sayyaf, was seized during a special operations raid on Saturday and according to the White House, she is being held in US military custody in Iraq.
But her capture raises a host of thorny policy questions for the Obama administration, which has taken few terrorist detainees and prosecuted those it has taken in US federal courts.
