Naser Almadaoji, an Iraqi-born naturalized U.S. citizen, was arrested at John Glenn International Airport in Columbus, Ohio. He was planning to travel to Kazakhstan and then into Afghanistan, where he intended to join ISIS. As he planned for his trip, Almadaoji was in communication online with an FBI informant who posed as an ISIS member. Almadaoji sent the informant a video of himself pledging allegiance to ISIS. He also translated ISIS propaganda for the informant, believing he was in fact delivering the translation to ISIS.
