Munir Abdulkader told an FBI informant in 2015 that he planned to travel to Syria to join ISIS. In May that year, concerned about his ability to travel, Abdulkader abandoned the plan. He then corresponded with ISIS member Junaid Hussein, who encouraged Abdulkader to kill a military employee in the United States. The informant then helped Abdulkader set up a meeting to purchase an AK-47, after which he was arrested.
