After “attempt to join ISIS,” Wisconsin Sex Offender arrested at the airport attempting to re-enter the Country

When it comes to bad luck, Joshua Van Haften, has been having a bad last few months.  The Wisconsin man who was previously convicted of sexual assault, battery, and other misdemeanor charges now has another few charges to add to his list.

“Joshua Van Haften, 34, of Madison, was arrested Wednesday night at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago after returning on a flight from Turkey. 

He has now been charged in a criminal complaint with attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. 

The criminal complaint, which had been under seal since Oct. 28, alleges that Van Haften talked to people about his plan before leaving the United States in August for Istanbul.

The complaint cites Facebook posts from Van Haften that said he was unable to cross the border from Turkey into Syria. 

In one post, Van Haften complained that the people who were supposed to help him just wanted his money, that he had almost no cash left and that he was dropped off on a road in the country and never picked up.”

There is a lesson to be learned here.  If you are such a bad dude that even ISIS doesn’t want you, maybe you should reconsider  your life choices.
