A U.S. Army soldier arrested for supporting ISIS has been convicted and will serve time in prison. PJ Media reports:
A U.S. Army soldier arrested last year after pledging allegiance to ISIS and threatening to conduct terror attacks in his native Hawaii, where he was stationed at the time, pleaded guilty yesterday to all four charges he faced of terror support.
Sgt. 1st Class Ikaika Kang was arrested in July 2017 after a year-long investigation. Following his guilty plea, he has agreed to serve 25 years in federal prison.
Kang was stationed at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii outside Honolulu and was assigned to the 25th Infantry Division. He had previously served on tours in South Korea, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
The criminal complaint alleged that he “attempted to provide material support to ISIS by providing both classified military documents, and other sensitive but unclassified military documents, to persons he believed would pass the documents to ISIS.”
This is a reminder that radical Islamic terrorism remains a real threat to Americans everywhere.
