The young man was sick of America and was headed to the Middle East to join ISIS.

Federal prosecutors announced on Monday that FBI agents arrested 19-year-old Mohammed Hamzah Khan, of suburban Bolingbrook, on Saturday evening before he boarded a flight to Istanbul, Turkey, via Vienna.

They accuse him of attempting to travel overseas to support terrorism which carries a maximum sentence of 15-years and Khan is also charged with attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization…

Agents…found a handwritten three-page letter from Khan to his parents in which he informs them he was on his way to Syria and the Islamic State, saying he was upset his U.S. taxes were going to kill his ‘Muslim brothers and sisters,’ the complaint says.

‘We are all witness that the western societies are getting more immoral day by day,’ the letter says. ‘I do not want my kids being exposed to filth like this.’ He also invites his parents to join him one day.

    “he was upset his U.S. taxes were going to kill his ‘Muslim brothers and sisters”, gee, a libertarian muslim wannabe terrorist, who knew! Which fringe right wing media outlet will take up his defense? Rand Paul, Grover Norquist, Koch brothers, Tea Partiers from all across the country? How about Cliven Bundy?

      I’m willing to bet not a single one of the group you mention does. Not to mention, you have both libertarian and conservatives mentioned, 🙂

    FBI Director James Comey says about 12 Americans are fighting with terrorists in Syria “They know who they are and they are entitled to come back” At the same time they arrest this guy who hasn’t actually done anything yet? How about this? let him go, revoke his passport so he can’t come back and revoke the passports of anyone else fighting with these savages in syria & iraq

    “he was upset his U.S. taxes were going to kill his Muslim brothers”

    So he was going to join ISIS so he could kill his Muslim brothers himself.

    He’s a 19 yo student, what taxes did he pay.
