U.S. Soldier Arrested in Hawaii, Accused of Trying to Support ISIS

For NBC, Tim Stelloh and Alex Johnson report, “An Army sergeant has been arrested in Hawaii and charged with seeking to provide classified military documents and training to ISIS, according to court records unsealed Monday.” Sgt. Ikaika Erik Kang, a 34-year-old air traffic control operator, was arrested on Saturday after having been under surveillance for nearly a year. Stelloh and Johnson write, “This past March, an undercover FBI operative reported that Kang said he had been researching ‘the most effective and painful ways people had been tortured,’ adding that ‘he was still angry at a civilian who had taken away his air traffic controller’s license, and that he wanted to torture him.’”
