It is no secret that ISIS is a dangerous group of radicals that need to be exterminated from this world. These barbarians have absolutely no respect for human life which is evident in the way that they kill those considered to be infidels. While we know that these radical Muslims are a threat in other parts of the world no one could imagine they would infiltrate our U.S. military. However, that is exactly what has happened after an ISIS terrorist was discovered in our military’s midst, and what he was planning is terrifying.
Secretary of Defense James Mattis and President Trump must be breathing a sigh of relief this morning after an ISIS terrorist has been arrested. The Army in conjunction with the FBI was able to stop a potentially dangerous situation with an ISIS terrorist in our Army. The Hawaiian soldier Ikaika Erik Kang, has been arrested for pledging allegiance to the Islamic State terrorist group and vowing to slaughter in the name of Islam.
Kang graduated high school in 2001 and then enlisted in the Army just months after the tragic events of September 11th unfolded. Kang had extensive training in and had achieved Level IV Tactical Combat Instructor status, which gave him the ability to instruct others. Kang had been deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan and his father, Clifford Kang, said that is when his son began to study Islam.
Kang then began to openly threaten other service members and soldiers and was reprimanded on several occasions. Kang regularly made pro-ISIS arguments while he was on post and at work. Why Kang was allowed to continue his service is anyone’s guess, but he was allowed to. In the past, Kang had his security clearance revoked, but it was reinstated shortly after.
According to the criminal complaint, Kang also praised Hitler and believed that he was correct in killing the Jewish people, but it was what the FBI found on his computer that is chilling.
Kang had “SECRET” files on his computer and close to 500 documents that referenced ISIS, ISIL, and/or violence. These documents included the doctrine of ISIS and one issue was actually titled Assassination Operations, and another entitled “Targeting.”
It was also discovered that Kang “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.” It was also discovered that Kang had contributed to the purchase of a drone with the intention of it to help ISIS during combat.
Here is the criminal complaint for you to look over yourself.
Here is more from Star Advertiser:
FBI agents in Honolulu have arrested a Schofield Barracks soldier on suspicion of terrorism and connections with the Islamic State group.
FBI spokesman Arnold Laanui told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that Sgt. 1st Class Ikaika Erik Kang, 34, was arrested late Saturday night by special agents of the FBI SWAT team.
A criminal complaint filed by the FBI today said Kang, of Waipahu, attempted to provide “material support and resources,” including classified and unclassified military documents and a drone to the organization.
The complaint says he attempted to share the resources with “persons he believed would pass the documents to ISIS.” It says Kang also made a video to teach the group combat techniques.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Kenneth J. Mansfield appointed attorney Birney Bervar to represent Kang, and set a bail hearing for Thursday.
The office of the U.S. Attorney has filed papers seeking to have Kang held in custody without the opportunity for release.
Paul Delacourt, the FBI special agent in charge of the Hawaii bureau, said the FBI believes Kang was a lone actor and wasn’t affiliated with anyone who poses a threat.
This is terrifying to think that this sort of threat is alive and well in our own military. Though the FBI says this was a lone wolf, it does not make me feel any less worried or safer. President Trump and Secretary of Defense James Mattis has made a pledge to eradicate ISIS from this earth, However, who would have thought that this threat would be smack dab in the middle of our military.
Kang should have been arrested a long time before this ever was allowed to happen in the first place. For this treasonous pile of excrement to be able to speak these heinous threats to other service members and share these documents is indefensible.
Though since we live in a world of political correctness people most likely, turned the other way when Kang made these threats so that they were not labeled racists. This is why political correctness needs to be erased from our vocabulary so that law enforcement officials are able to do their job correctly again.
However, while Kang was an obvious traitor, there are plenty of other brave men and women defending our country. It is good to know that these people stepped forward and said something before another disaster could occur.
