Aaron Travis Daniels, 20, aka Harun Muhammad, aka Abu Yusef, of Columbus, Ohio, pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), a designated foreign terrorist organization, in violation of Title 18, U.S. Code, Section 2339B.
“Daniels admitted that he attempted to travel abroad to provide material support to ISIS,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Boente. “Identifying, thwarting and holding accountable individuals who attempt to provide material support to foreign terrorist organizations is a top priority of the Department of Justice.”
“This case demonstrates how terrorist activities abroad can reach into our local communities,” U.S. Attorney Glassman said. “Our office and agencies in the JTTF will continue to cooperate as we work to protect our national security.”
JTTF agents arrested Daniels on Nov. 7, 2106, as he attempted to leave Columbus with the intent to join ISIS in Libya. A federal grand jury indicted him on Nov. 10, 2016. Daniels has been in custody since his arrest.
Daniels faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
Unfortunately, U.S. attorneys and law enforcement refuse to look at the conduit allowing terrorist activities to reach into our local communities: MOSQUES. Harun Muhammad’s mother provided this insight via Ohio Muslim Arrested For Trying To Join ISIS in Hillary’s Libya:
It begins with the refugees who never leave, and the legal immigrants both of whom receive foreign funding to build mega mosques. Then takeover entire neighborhoods. Then cities.
