A Metro Transit police officer has been arrested and charged with attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State, marking the first time a U.S. law enforcement officer has been accused of trying to aid the terrorist group.

Nicholas Young, 36, of Fairfax, Va., was arrested Wednesday morning at Metropolitan Police Headquarters in Washington and his employment was terminated. Young, at the request of an undercover federal agent, sent codes for mobile messaging cards that Young believed would be used by Islamic State fighters overseas to communicate, according to an indictment filed in federal court in Alexandria, Va.

According to the indictment, Young was focused on activity abroad, not in the D.C. area. He told law enforcement at one point that he had traveled to Libya twice in 2011 to fight against the late Moammar Gaddafi.

Another Hellary supported war. Apparently he should be given a medal by Obama and Hellary. Oh and Mcane Mutiny as well.

Good point. It might be why the article uses the “common” name.

I can think of a lot more government officials that help terrorists. Obama, Holder, Lynch, H. Clinton, Uma Abadabado, Jarett.

I can’t find a picture of this guy anywhere. Having read up on him, he sounds like a real sicko. Scary thing is I worked with a guy at DOJ who got hired by D.C. Transit Police about the same time he did, around 2003. I can’t remember that guy’s name, but I remember his face, that’s why I’m looking for a pic of this Nicholas Young guy. I’m not saying I think it’s the same guy for sure, but I’m wondering....the guy I worked with didn’t strike me as a psycho, though.

If it’s been over 6 yrs. then they would not have arrested him without a good deal of evidence...I suspect they trailed hi for so to get all the connections.

I predict we’ll see pics very soon, especially seeing as he sounds to be a white guy with neo-Nazi leanings, among other leanings.

The reports make it sound like he was almost begging the feds to arrest him, based in his activities etc.

This guy went twice to Libya to fight for Hillary’s Jihadis against Khadafy. Wouldnt surprise me if more connected to Benghazi & Hillary.
