A Hawaii-based U.S. Army soldier was arrested over the weekend after allegedly attempting to provide military documents and a drone to the ISIS terror group.
RT said, Sgt. 1st Class Ikaika Kang, 34, was arrested late Saturday night by an FBI SWAT team at the Schofield Barracks in Honolulu. He served in Iraq from March 2010 to February 2011 and Afghanistan from July 2013 to April 2014.
“Kang tried to give confidential and unclassified documents to the ISIS, he also accused of attempting to teach the group combat techniques”. FBI Special Agent Jimmy Chen said. The affidavit says the Army reported Kang to the FBI in August 2016 after “it appeared that Kang was becoming radicalized” and has on had a history of “threatening statements.”
However, Fox News U.S said, Kang was a member of the 25th Infantry Division and a trained air traffic controller. Kang admitted to transfer the documents in ISIS but he said it could not harm the United States.
The affidavit also alleges that during the course of the investigation, Kang told an informant that he wanted to pour Drano into the eyes of a civilian who had taken away his air traffic controller’s license.
“He’s a great kid. He’s not real outgoing, he’s never been, but neither was I, but other than that he’s a great kid, a normal kid who grew up in Waimanalo.”Kang’s father, Clifford, said to Hawaii News. ‘I’m kind of stunned to tell you the truth,” Kang’s father told the paper. “I never heard of him being with ISIS.”
