US Army Veteran Charged with Trying to Aid ISIS

Robert Hester spent a very short in the US Army from 2012-2013 before leaving under a “general discharge” following “numerous violations of US Army regulations.

By 2016, he had converted to Islam, had a new name — and was attempting to plot attacks against the United States he once served.

[Hester] was charged last week with trying to support the Islamic State as part of what he thought was a coordinated attack against civilian targets and military installations, authorities say…

Thirteen civilians or veterans similarly planned to attack or did attack US troops, motivated by their Islamic faith:

Michael “Mikey” Weinstein claims Christians in the US military are a threat to security threat — so much so that Christians shouldn’t be allowed to serve in the military. Yet every single attempt or plan to kill US troops by these troops or veterans was conducted by a Muslim — including at least one Muslim that Mikey Weinstein interacted with before he was arrested. Kind of makes you wonder if Weinstein is concerned with “national security”… or just Christians.
