ISIS-Trained Ohio Man Who Returned to the US to Attack Arrested

Trying to hook up with ISIS just doesn’t pay. And one ISIS wannabe learned that the hard way when he was arrested after returning to the United States to try to set up a terrorist attack.

Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud, 23, of Columbus, left in April 2014 — two months after becoming a naturalized citizen — to train and fight with the extremists in Syria, the Justice Department said, ABC News reported.

Islamic State wannabe Mohamud — who has posted the group’s propaganda online — was charged with providing material support to al Nusrah, an al Qaeda affiliate in Syria, according to the feds.

The jihadists trained him in shooting, home break-ins, explosives and hand-to-hand combat, authorities said. He was then ordered to return to the US and commit a terror act, an indictment said.

He returned in June 2014.

“Mohamud talked about doing something big in the United States,” the indictment said. “He wanted to go to a military base in Texas and kill three or four American soldiers execution style.”

Mohamud, who was arrested in February on state charges, was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of attempting to provide and providing material support to terrorists, one count of attempting to provide and providing material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, and one count of making false statements to the FBI.

Hey, message to all you budding terrorists out there: it generally isn’t the smartest thing to come back to the United States after travelling to a terrorist hotspot, and then post a bunch of jihadist messages on the internet. What kind of morons is ISIS breeding over there? He may as well have just walked into FBI headquarters and said arrest me.
