A Texas native who was anxious to join ISIS sent the terrorist group his resume and a cover letter explaining that he was well-qualified to teach English.

“I am looking to get a position teaching English to students in the Islamic State,” Warren Clark, a 33-year-old graduate from the University of Houston, stated in his cover letter.

Using the alias Abu Muhammad al-Ameriki, Clark added, “I was born and raised in the U.S. and have always loved teaching others and learning from others. My background is largely in English, and I consider working at the University of Mosul to be a great way of continuing my career.”

An excerpt from Clark’s cover letter.

Clark’s unsettlingly employment application to the violent terror group was obtained by researchers at George Washington University, who published an extensive report on American jihadists in Syria and Iraq, the New York Daily News reported.

The researchers were able to verify that Abu Muhammad was Clark by comparing the education credentials and work experience shown on the resume.

The resume also said that Clark was employed as a substitute teacher in Texas before relocating to Saudi Arabia to teach English.

The researchers think that Clark has successfully joined ISIS in Iraq, and is believed to be alive.

The eye-opening report indicated that 64 Americans have gone to Iraq and Syria to join ISIS. Only 12 of them have come back to the U.S., and nine of those have been apprehended.
