Elvis Redzepagic traveled multiple times to the Middle East in an effort to join ISIS or the Nusra Front. He was twice prevented from crossing into Syria from Turkey and later was detained in Jordan and deported to the United States. After being arrested in Suffolk County, New York, for a state violation, Redzepagic told the officers, “I’m going to leave this country and I’m going to come back with an army. Islam is coming.” Investigators with the Joint Terrorism Task Force interviewed Redzepagic, who admitted to his travels and his desire to join one of the terrorist organizations. Redzepagic provided JTTF investigators with his laptop, which contained Facebook messages he had sent, including one that read, “I just don’t like this country.”
