So Mohamed is a native of Sierra Leone but we know nothing else. Wouldn’t it be great to get the full story from the press? He met someone with ISIS during a trip to Africa who helped him become radicalized…sounds like this guy was heading in that direction long before he was with the National Guard…

Authorities arrested a former U.S. soldier with the National Guard Sunday for actively plotting with a foreign Islamic State source to carry out a “Fort Hood” style terrorist attack.

Mohamed Jalloh, 26, from Sterling, Va., will appear in Alexandria court Tuesday, charged with attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization. Jalloh served in the Army National Guard but quit the service after being inspired by a number of online lecture videos of Anwar al-Awlaki, a now-deceased radical cleric. Jalloh bought an assault rifle as part of an FBI sting Saturday after many failed attempts due to improper paperwork, reports WJLA.

Before the FBI began its investigation Jalloh was already speaking with an unidentified ISIS member he likely met on a trip to Africa.

“Nidal Hasan type of things,” Jalloh told the FBI informant regarding his intentions. “That’s the kind of stuff I started thinking.”
