Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis must be breathing a sigh of relief tonight! The Army, together with the FBI, has stopped a very potentially dangerous situation involving a U.S. soldier allegedly involved with ISIS.
Sgt. 1st Class Ikaika Kang, who has served in the Army since 2001, was arrested Saturday night by an FBI SWAT team at Schofield Barracks in Honolulu.
He has been under investigation for about a year, over multiple incidents of concern that he had become radicalized. He served in both Iraq and Afghanistan and his father, Clifford Kang, said that his son began studying Islam while there.
The FBI arrested him for allegedly trying to give classified documents and a drone to undercover agents who he believed to be members of ISIS.
It is frightening to think that a threat such as this could be within our military. Our country, including our President, is committed to obliterating the treat of ISIS from the face of the Earth. It’s sad to think that the threat could be found right within our own military!
Most of our military men and women, however, are doing their best and sacrificing so much to keep our country safe and free! It’s good to know that people are paying attention and caught this threat before he was able to do any damage!
If you support our military and want the men and women who serve to be able to do their jobs without this sort of threat, please SHARE this with all your friends.
