Raleigh, N.C. A Fayetteville man who the FBI says was a recruiter for Islamic State forces pleaded guilty Monday to federal fraud and tax charges.
Houcine Becher Ghoul, 43, pleaded guilty to lying on his application for U.S. citizenship and two counts of tax fraud. He faces up to 16 years in prison when he is sentenced in February.
Ghoul, a native of Tunisia, admitted to lying when asked on his citizenship application whether he supported a terrorist organization, and he also married several women in an attempt to obtain citizenship. The tax charges are for not reporting all of his income and for improper use of the Earned Income Tax Credit.
He doesn't face any terror-related charges because court documents show no specific evidence that he he financed or planned to carry out terrorism.
The FBI began investigating Ghoul in 2014 after a Facebook post on an account associated with his name indicated support of terrorism.
Investigators tracked his social media accounts, one of which included a photo of a man in a convenience store holding a handmade sign that reads, "The American support for the Islamic State" in Arabic. Below it, in English, it says, "ISIS, North Carolina USA." That photo later appeared in a propaganda video released on an ISIS YouTube channel.

So did I. I said I make more money than I do and they gave me a higher credit limit. Wait. Wrong Visa.
What did we do to fail him? We owe him an apology!
No way /s
These people lie with such ease and repetition that they don’t have any concept of truth. Never mind any respect for the truth.
It’s cultural, inbred and expected. It’s no wonder that everywhere they go, all they produce is misery and death.
He should be hanged.
What’s insane is that the refugee loving crowd think that by asking the applicant if he has any involvement with terrorists he has been sufficiently vetted.
Ah, that's where Ghouls come from.
Dictionary definition: an evil demon, originally of Muslim legend, supposed to feed on human beings, and especially to rob graves, prey on corpses, etc.
I wouldn't want to be in the same cell with a Ghoul.
They are just dying to be “Culturally Enriched”.
I donated money to his defense
Better than being in the same bed with one for 10 years :-)
The ghoul named Ghoul. Character played by Jeff Flake.
If he files to run as a democrat for any office, charges will be dropped.
“Whats insane is that the refugee loving crowd think that by asking the applicant if he has any involvement with terrorists he has been sufficiently vetted.”
I hate the term “vette”. The whole idea that anything resmbling a background check on these sand flies is preposterous. There is no NICS in the middle East and whatever they is all lies.
