A 19-year-old Colorado woman has been charged with providing material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization, after she was arrested trying to board a flight from Denver to allegedly meet with members of the Islamic State of Iraq, The Denver Channel is reporting.

An FBI criminal complaint alleges that Shannon Maureen Conley, along with others, attempted to make contact with the militant group and travel to Syria via Turkey, AP reports.

Reuters has more on the criminal complaint:

It said she met a co-conspirator, only identified as Y.M. in court papers, on the Internet sometime in 2013. It said the pair "shared their view of Islam as requiring participation in violent jihad against any non-believers," and Y.M. told her he was an active member of ISIL.

It said Conley planned to travel to Syria via Turkey to meet Y.M., and first attended military tactics and firearms training with the U.S. Army Explorers in Texas in February of this year.

I can only guess that a muzzie faked her out into believing she would be most attractive as a suicide bomber.

Should have just let her go.

I'm certain a few months of being treated like some Islamic pig's chattel would change her mind about the 'glory' of the cause.

If you charge this dumb broad you have to charge Obama, Hillary, Petraeus, Brennen, and a bunch of other US officials for sending arms and money to Al Qaeda in Syria and Libya.

Is what she had done fundamentally different then what Obama or McCain has done? Maybe she should point that out to her lawyers.

Looking at her pic in #8, my speculation is that this not-that-attractive girl found some Muzzie willing to convince her that she’s the most beautiful girl in the world (until he gets her into his Muslim homeland, at which point she’s his sex slave)

She’s a stupid, misguided teenager who fell in love with some creep on-line, is what it sounds like. It ain’t right but I’m not sure it warrants fifteen years in prison either.

What I question is that if she and that other kid from Tx are facing 15 years for aiding ISIS, how come Obama isn’t facing charges as well? He was aiding ISIS for over a year, that we know of.

These kids didn’t accomplish anything (yet), but the govt. has given billions in weapons, training and ordnance to these monsters.

“The peaceful religion of Islam”

Do you know someone who adopted a pitbull and hence forth make it their mission to prove pitbulls are not all bad? The “why” is immaterial, you can’t get it from them if you try.

No One Is Talking About The 153 Schoolchildren Kidnapped By ISIS

Isn't this a wonderful religion.

LOL.

And as is popularly stated frequently around here, pot just turns folks into do-nothings, and this actually required advanced planning.

Puzzling that a woman, who is regarded as property in Islamic cultures, would wish to become an active participant in their Jihad.

QUOTE: Conley told investigators she liked the idea of ‘guerrilla warfare because she could do it alone.’

That’s an odd statement.

QUOTE: ‘If they think I’m a terrorist, I’ll give them something to think I am,’ the 19-year-old allegedly declared, referring to staffers at a local church where she had been taken classes.

Kinda like Muslim tollerance...question it and they’ll kill you.

Some women dream of being the property of a sufficiently "Alpha" man.

Look at a lot of the "romance novels"/"women porn" you see in bookstores. Fantasies of being in the power of a pirate king (or some such) are very common themes, indicating that women pay money to enter into the fantasy.
