It doesn't matter if he was 15 or 55 years of age. This person picked up a weapon and knowingly participated in a firefight which cost the life of soldiers. If this person had strapped on explosives to his back and was captured trying to blow up up a civilian airliner would the public expect us to release this person. In my personal belief if a person is willing to kill for their beliefs they should also be willing to die for those same beliefs. For those who say he had no idea what he was doing, I disagree. It is human nature to know the difference between good and bad, and the last time I checked killing another living being is "bad."
