(via New York Post) GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Federal prosecutors say three Michigan residents have been charged with conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State group.
They say FBI agents arrested Muse Abdikadir Muse, Mohamud Abdikadir Muse and Mohamed Salat Haji on Monday, and prosecutors charged the Lansing residents in a complaint filed Tuesday.
Prosecutors say all three defendants are naturalized U.S. citizens who were born in Kenya. It wasn’t immediately clear if Muse Abdikadir Muse and Mohamud Abdikadir Muse are related.
An affidavit says Muse Muse purchased airline tickets earlier this month to travel from Grand Rapids to Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu, and that Haji and Mohamud Muse aided in the purchase of the tickets and drove Muse Muse to Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids.
Online court records do not list attorneys for the defendants.
First things first, Muse Muse? is that for real? I feel like this whole story is fishy. We have one guy who has the same first and last name, we have guys with the same middle name “Abdikadir” (God bless you), and of course they’re citizens of Kenya.
This whole thing is wrapped up in too nice of a Trump bow and I’m not buying it. I can picture The Donald in the War Room trying to come up with distractions and an aide busts through the door and says, “Mr. President!! I’ve got it!! We just caught three Arab guys trying to buy plane tickets.” The Donald would get that little kid glimmer in his eye that he gets when he discusses pussy grabbing, fast food meals, or trampling the civil rights of brown people.
Let’s be honest, things haven’t been awesome for POTUS these last few weeks. The shutdown is still going (I think) and the Democrats have a majority in the House and talks of impeachment have been getting louder and louder.
What do you do when literally EVERYTHING is going against you? You round up some mother trucking terrorists that’s what you do. And if there aren’t any terrorists easily available then just round up a few Arab guys in Michigan trying to fly to Somalia and tell everyone they’re ISIS. Boom done, problem solved.
P.S. Wish I was a fly on the wall when Trump found out they are from Kenya and had to be talked down from declaring that they are Obama’s cousins or something. ‘Merica!!
