US soldier pledged allegiance to ISIS — FBI

Army Soldier Arrested in Hawaii for Suspected Ties to ISIS

Kang enlisted in the army in December 2001, weeks after the 9/11 attacks.

Concerns had previously been raised about Kang's possible radicalisation.

After completing requirements set forth by the military in response to Kang's actions, his security clearance was reinstated. Ikaika Erik Kang allegedly pledged loyalty to ISIS and then attempted to steal military documents.

He also told an undercover FBI agent that he wanted to join Islamic State.

Kang also reportedly talked about possibly joining ISIS.

In a similar incident, a former Virginia National Guardsman Mohamed Jalloh was sentenced to 11 years in prison for plotting to help ISIS in February. He is stationed at Wheeler Army Airfield in Honolulu, according to court records first obtained by Hawaii News Now.

486 documents that referenced ISIS, ISIL or violence. The two discussed traveling to Turkey to go to the ISIS consulate.

Kang returned to Hawaii. He is also a mixed martial arts enthusiasts who had one professional fight in 2013, the FBI said. NBC News reported that a statement from the Army claimed he allegedly swore allegiance to the Islamic State. "He's really strong in his belief in the Muslim faith", he said. He even relayed to the FBI informant in March that he researched the most painful and effective ways "people had been tortured".

A month later, an undercover FBI agent posted as guest lecturer at Fort Rucker and was introduced to Kang, later accompanying him to a mosque.

An active duty Army soldier arrested by the FBI in Hawaii on terrorism charges has ties to Kansas.

The FBI took a decorated U.S. Army sergeant into custody Monday for providing material support to the Islamic State.

Meanwhile Kang's court-appointed defense attorney, Birney Bervar, said that his client may be suffering from service-related mental health issues.

Kang also said he believed in the mass extermination of those of Jewish faith and said "Hitler was right". He told reporters the FBI believes Kang was a lone actor and wasn't affiliated with anyone who poses a threat. He brought firearms, knives and tactical gear to the house.

Ikaika Kang, 34, was arrested by an FBI SWAT team on July 8.
