Yet another agent of the Obama-Biden era Islamic State has been caught red-handed attempting to board a cargo ship to the Middle East, to join ISIS and kill Americans.
Hoda Muthana gained notoriety a few years ago when President Donald Trump prevented her from returning to the United States after leaving to join ISIS in 2014. Her older sister, Arwa, and her brother-in-law were just caught leaving to join the same cause. Arwa has also expressed her willingness to kill Americans for Allah.
Under President Trump, ISIS was almost wiped out, but the terrorist organization is reportedly making a comeback under Joe Biden.
Arwa Muthana and her husband James Bradley, 20, also known as Abdullah, were arrested in Newark, New Jersey as they attempted to travel via cargo ship to the Middle East to join ISIS, according to an announcement released by the U.S. Department of Justice.
They are being charged in Manhattan federal court with attempting and conspiring to provide material support to a federally designated terrorist organization.
Federal prosecutors have revealed that, out of fear that they may not be able to travel abroad, Arwa Muthana and James Bradley planned to attack the U.S. Military Academy at West Point or another area university at which Bradley knew military recruit training was taking place.
Bradley was unaware of the fact that the individual he was planning the journey to Yemen with was an undercover officer, “and their plans to wage attacks against the United States have been thwarted,” U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said.
According to the DOJ, Bradley had paid the officer $1,000 to help him travel to Yemen. The officer informed the couple that the cargo ship would be departing on March 31. The couple was arrested as they walked the gangplank to board the ship.
“Since at least 2019, Bradley has expressed violent extremist views and a desire to support ISIS overseas or by committing a terrorist attack in the United States, according to the DOJ.
Bradley allegedly said that if he could not leave the United States because he might be on a terrorism watch list, he would do ‘something’ in the United States instead, referring to carrying out an attack, prosecutors say.”
According to a press release, “After (Arwa) Muthana was arrested, she waived her Miranda rights and stated during an interview that she was willing to fight and kill Americans if it was for Allah. Also on March 31, 2021, in connection with a court-authorized search, the FBI seized from a bedroom previously used by Bradley what appears to be a hand-drawn image of a jihadi flag commonly used by ISIS and a hand-drawn map of the Pakistan region.”
