SAC Delacourt further advised, "Kang has been under investigation by the U.S. Army and the FBI for over a year".

Kang, who was deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, is a decorated servicemen, according to his court-appointed lawyer Birney Bervar.

At a brief court appearance on Monday, he was presented with the charges against him and ordered to remain in federal custody pending a July 13 detention hearing. Kang is being held on terrorism charges after the FBI claims he tried to get secret military documents to the Islamic State group. However, it was reinstated a year later after he completed the necessary military requirements.

Kang has two firearms registered in his name, an AR-15-style rifle and a handgun. Also, a sobering note: ISIS may be getting its clock cleaned in Mosul at the moment, but there's every reason to think they will keep seeking ways to hurt us and our allies. He also said he believed the 9/11 terrorist attacks were an inside job. The tip prompted a year-long investigation that included a confidential informant and multiple undercover FBI agents, including one posing as an ISIS recruiter.

Last month, Kang bought a commercial drone with a camera, which he told uncover FBI agents could be used by ISIS fighters for escaping from approaching U.S. tanks, the affidavit said.

Kang, a Vietnam veteran, said his son enlisted in the army after graduating from Kaiser High in 2001. The court documents did not indicate the location of the mosque.

Kang is an active duty U.S. soldier stationed at Schofield Barracks in Honolulu.

Daesh terrorists are operating in several Islamic countries in the Middle East and North Africa as well as in Afghanistan. One issue was titled "Assassination Operations", and another titled "Targeting".

That day, the FBI arrested Kang.

At Kang's home, there was red "evidence" tape on his door and on his water heater storage door. It is claimed that Kang admitted he voluntarily pledged loyalty to IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He told the agent he wanted to use the former to kill many people, according to the affidavit.

He was assigned to the 25th Combat Aviation Brigade. Kang had received the highest level of combat training available in the Army and was a mixed martial arts enthusiast. He's a great kid.
