U.S. Citizen Found Guilty of 'Attempting To Provide Material Support to ISIS'
[Daily Caller] Parveg Ahmed, 22, of Queens, New York, went to Saudi Arabia in order to "celebrate an Islamic religious holiday" but was deported back to the U.S. after he was caught trying to cross the border into Syria in an attempt to join ISIS.

Ahmed, a U.S. citizen, was also apprehended for posting about his support for the Islamic Extremist group on Facebook. After a search warrant was acquired for his personal computer, additional materials about his attempts to join were discovered.

"... the defendant had viewed or listened to recordings of radical Islamic clerics Anwar al-Awlaki and Abdullah el-Faisal," said the DOJ. "Al-Awlaki was a U.S.-born cleric and prominent leader of the foreign terrorist organization al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula who was killed on or about Sept. 30, 2011. El-Faisal, a Jamaican-born cleric, was found guilty in the United Kingdom of, among other things, solicitation to commit murder, for preaching to followers to kill individuals, including Americans, because he deemed them to be enemies of Islam."

Ahmed faces a statutory maximum of 20 years in prison after decisions are made by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Craig R. Heeren and Margaret E. Lee of the Eastern District of New York with assistance from Trial Attorney Joshua Champagne of the National Security Division’s Counterterrorism Section.

#1 Had to go to a number of sources to find this:

"Ahmed, who is a naturalized [Go figure...] United States citizen originally from Bangladesh, went to Stuyvesant High School and Hunter College for a while, his brother said. He said Ahmed was smart and had worked in a warehouse and as a math tutor."

#2 Saudi Arabia doesn't have a common border with Syria so there is something missing in this article.

In a sense, it would have been better to let Mr Ahmed get to Syria and join ISIS. If ISIS didn't execute him themselves they would have used him as cannon fodder and we wouldn't have the costs of his care and feeding.

#3 I thought this was going to be about Jack Dorsey or Mark Zuckerburg.

Or Brin/Page/Schmidt.

#4 Mugshots.com has a photo of the miscreant in a report dated 8/30/2017, adding that he went from the Magic Kingdom to Jordan:

His father said he traveled to Saudi Arabia with Ahmed in June, and then his son left to travel. "We called him and he said he was coming back."

However, the family received a visit from the FBI in June while Ahmed was in Jordan. A law enforcement source said the 22-year-old was initially taken into custody in Jordan. His father sent him a plane ticket and he was released, however, the FBI arrested him Monday.
