A 19-year-old Colorado woman has been arrested while trying to board a flight at Denver International Airport with the goal of meeting with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), federal authorities alleged. Shannon Maureen Conley, a Muslim convert, was arrested by the FBI April 8 after telling agents she was traveling to Syria to use her American military training from the Army Explorers to aid Islamic militants waging jihad, according to court records released Wednesday. Against her parents wishes, Conley planned to marry a 32-year-old Tunisian man fighting in Syria for ISIS who she met online and communicated with him on Skype.

She could join anyone of the 1000++ heavily armed, conservative anti-government militia groups here in this country, with no legal problems, and the blessing of many folks from the NRA, and the Tea Party. She could easily do more harm here in the USA then in ISIS, where her life expectancy would be short.

The relevant distinction being that people sign up for the american army, are shipped overseas, and commit murder all the time.

Terrorist = murder against the american empire.

**** If it's a CRIME to join ISIS then it's more of a CRIME to "Encourage,Fund and Arm" them like the Obama Govt/CIA is doing!
Of course the Obama Mafia could explain this off by pointing out that individuals must follow the law and are subject to it's penalties whereas Govt's and Corporations have IMMUNITY!

Sad day when the standard issue Military Anti-Tank Guided Missile is out of reach and price for the average American Citizen, but one has only to declare themselves ant-west, anti-Assad and pro-jihad and venture to Syria where Obama and McCain will arm you with such and more.

Not shortage of brilliance. Let her go. Someone this smart surely can't hurt.
