Dutch Sergeant joins Islamic State

A Dutch sergeant has joined the Islamic State.  Experts say that he might pass on names and addresses of his fellow soldiers to the IS.  Rumor has it that he was serving at an air force base, which makes this possibility particularly worrying, especially since the Dutch air force participates in bombing IS bases.  Anything he knows about air force base security is also at risk of exposure.  While this is the first verified report of an active Dutch soldier joining the IS, it was discovered that at some point after 2012, a former Dutch soldier Omar Yilmaz also joined the fighting in Syria.
