BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – A Florida court sentenced three residents of the state to various terms of imprisonment for conspiracy to provide material assistance to the so-called Islamic State (ISIS), the US Justice Department reported.

Dane Antani Christian, Darren Arness Jackson, and Gregory Hubbard were detained by the FBI on July 2016 for aiding and abetting the Islamic State from July 2015 to July 2016, the report added.

In July 2016, it was reported that Jackson drove Hubbard to Miami International Airport in order for him to fly to Germany and then Turkey, where he would later join ISIS after crossing over into Syria.

A few days later, the detainees were charged. In April last year, Christian and Jackson pleaded guilty to participation in the conspiracy.

“Hubbard was given the recommended sentence of 12 years in prison, after which he will be under surveillance during his lifetime,” the US Justice Department reporte.

Christian and Jackson, who pleaded guilty in 2017 and provided significant assistance to the investigation, received eight and four years of imprisonment respectively, “- said in a statement posted on the ministry’s website.

After the release, Christian and Jackson will be under the supervision of the authorities for another five years.

Juan : everybody, including Russia, Iran and China, was in to make Iraq/Syria “caliphate” becoming a magnet for the shithadists and they deliberately let them move, now look how the caliphate shrank and the fighters didn’t went on holidays… Now this needed logistics and rat-lines and look at all these jihad-apologetics showing themselves, especially on Twitter, and… Look at the Tariq Ramadan case : charged with 5 rapes : even the ones not into direct action but only implied in islamofascist propaganda are being screwed. Actually, there’s an easy way to understand what happened : watch Ridley Scott’s “Body of… Read more »

It’s not the only case like this and read again : they were caught with the last one they were about to send, the rat line was active for a full year. This means that… Many others managed to reach Syria… And likely got droned, bombed by the Russians or the coalition or killed by SAA or YPG 😉 It’s likely that the FBI considered they extracted all the roaches from the area and it was about to be the last shipping or near the last. Do you think that the tax-payers want to pay for having whole a rat-line… Read more »

Yes, the support to terrorists must be given in Middle East and not in USA. Maybe CIA and Pentagon did not make it clear to USA contractors.

Here is the forum we were laughing when Erdogan imprison thousands saying they were related with Feto. However, FBI is doing the same in USA. Whoever is not “good” citizen, in other words whoever start to raise voice against the government, he/she immediately is suspected of “internal” terrorism. So, I really don’t see a big difference between Erdogan’s regime and JUSA’s regime…
