A U.S. Army veteran who was fighting for Syrian rebel forces says he is alive and well after a pro-Syrian government group posted a video on YouTube claiming that he had been killed.The bloodied face of someone resembling Eric Harroun, 30, of Phoenix, was shown in the video, which was posted Wednesday under the title, ‘Terrorists, including American Extremist “Eric Harroun” Have Been Terminated.’

But Harroun told MailOnline from his personal email account on Friday that ‘Syrian Media must be smoking something, because I am alive and well chilling in Istanbul having a martini at the moment.’

MailOnline obtained Harroun’s email address from a family member and has communicated with him in the past using the same email address.

    don’t know anything about this guy is he a mercenary or a Muslim?

  2. Richard says:

    He is a Moslem, he was injured while in one of the two fronts we are fighting on and then converted after his discharge, there is a previous post about him, check it out.

    Wonder how his jihadi brothers feel about his martini?

  4. Softly Bob says:

    Having a martini is not the Muslim way. If he is a Muslim then he’s obviously one of the stupid converts who doesn’t understand what Islam is really about, a useful idiot fighting for the Muslim rebels. He has no beard either.
    What an idiot. There’s a lot of them about these days!

  5. Richard says:

    Bob he was in an accident and suffered a head injury, he now has a steel plate in his head. Personally I think he lost a lot of intelligence from the accident.

    Not making an excuse for him just explaining the probable reason for his stupidity.
