Why any American would want to join ISIS boggles the mind. A Virginia man was recently caught trying to do so and the FBI invaded his home. Now he’s in a world of trouble.

FBI Raids Home of Virginia Man Who Wanted to Join ISIS, Attack US: Court Docs
An hours-long FBI raid at a Sterling, Virginia, townhome on Friday was connected to a man who wanted to join ISIS and researched how to make bombs and weapons on the internet, according to court documents.
FBI agents arrested Sean Andrew Duncan Friday and charged him with attempting to obstruct a terrorism investigation. Court documents say Duncan tried to run and get rid of a thumb drive and memory chip he destroyed when agents came to search his home on Courthouse Square.
The court documents lay out a lengthy timeline of Duncan’s alleged links to terrorism, including:
– In Feb. 2016, one of Duncan’s relatives reported to the FBI that “Duncan had converted to Islam, may have been radicalized, and voiced his approval of westerners being beheaded in the Middle East,” the documents say.
– Duncan and his wife were interviewed by the FBI after traveling to Turkey on Feb. 26, 2016. Duncan deleted his Facebook account two days after being interviewed by the FBI, according to the documents.
Thank goodness they caught this guy before he could do anything dangerous.
