US army sergeant arrested on suspicion of supporting Isis

US army sergeant arrested on suspicion of supporting Isis

Kang apparently never made actual contact with the terrorist organization, and the public was never in danger, according to FBI sources, who described this as a joint FBI-U.S. Army sting operation. Jalloh served in the Virginia National Guard from 2009 to 2015.

According to the criminal complaint, Kang swore allegiance to ISIS.

Republican Rep. Ted Yoho said it was appropriate for President Donald Trump's son to meet with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign - and added that he probably would have taken the meeting under the same.

The agent suggested to Kang that he use his hand-to-hand combat experience to record training sessions for the terrorist group.

"Other than that teaching or learning of that belief there was no mention of him going astray". The FBI had previously been alerted about Kang's possible radicalization and obtained warrants to search Kang's belongings. The affidavit also said Kang admitted Saturday, at a home in Honolulu, he voluntarily pledged loyalty to Baghdadi.

In 2011, he was reported for having pro-ISIS views. His rank was sergeant first class.

The complaint says Kang used his high-level combat training and mixed-martial arts experience to train a person he believed to be a member of Islamic State and videotaping the sessions "so they could be used by [Islamic State] to train other fighters" and helped pay for a drone he believed would be used by Islamic State. The FBI believes he was acting alone. He was stationed at Schofield Barracks in Honolulu. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven otherwise in federal court.

Defense attorney Birney Bervar corroborated Clifford's claim and told the news outlet, he "may suffer from service-related mental health issues, which the government was aware of but neglected to treat".

Kang's father, Clifford Kang, expressed surprise at his son's arrest.

"I told him I was very concerned when he came back from Afghanistan and Iraq that maybe he had PTSD".

Court documents further indicate Kang had shown signs of radicalization several years ago. "I just hope there's some kind of misunderstanding or something".
