US Air Force veteran tried to join IS: prosecutors

AFP, NEW YORK

He allegedly told Egyptian authorities that he would rather be deported anywhere in the Middle East, because “the US doesn’t like black Muslims” and when asked how he would pay for his flight home, said he would prefer to remain in Egyptian custody.

He was arrested on Jan. 16 in the US and indicted by a federal grand jury in Brooklyn on Monday.
