Islamic US Soldier Kang Jailed for Supporting ISIS

Last year US Army SFC Ikaika Kang was arrested and charged with trying to materially support ISIS — including providing them classified information and a drone.

Last week he pled guilty:

Sgt. 1st Class Ikaika Kang, handcuffed and wearing a beige prison jumpsuit, spoke in a clear voice when he told a U.S. magistrate judge he’s guilty of all four counts against him.

“Your honor, I provided unclassified, classified documents to the Islamic State,” Kang said, adding that he also provided the drone.

Kang is among dozens of American civilians, US veterans, and even serving US military members who have been motivated by their Islamic faith to either plot against or attack US troops.

In Kang’s case, there were insinuations the Army knew of his anti-US sentiments but overlooked them out of an abundance of politically correct caution, given that he was a Muslim.

Summary:

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