College student is jailed for 18 years after helping ISIS plot a pressure-cooker bomb attack on New York City

[DailyMail]
  • Munther Omar Saleh was sentenced on Tuesday in federal court in Brooklyn

  • The 22-year-old pleaded guilty last year to charges that he planned to help ISIS

  • 'I'm in NY and trying to do an Op,' Saleh told a confidential source in an intercepted conversation

  • In March of 2015, a police officer observed Saleh on successive days on foot at the George Washington Bridge seemingly looking around

  • The behavior prompted officers to interview Saleh, who denied sympathizing with ISIS
The one thing the article neglects to mention: Mr. Saleh was in contact with Junaid Hussain (also cleverly known as "Abu Hussain"), the young former Birmingham, Englander who was briefly the proud husband of middle aged, former punk rocker Sally Jones and one of ISIS' long-distance jihad coaches. Mr. Hussain was killed at age 21 by a drone in Raqqa in August 2015. So our villain is not nearly the remorseful naif he is presented to be.

Hassan also said "you guys are lucky that I don't know how to build a bomb, because I would have done that."
