Miami - ISIS Recruit Arrested At Airport

An man from West Palm beach ended up in federal court this week pleading guilty to conspiring to provide material support to ISIS.

Mr Gregory Hubbard, 54-years-old, had been arrested at Miami International Airport on July 21, 2016, already.

The Florida resident, who had an online alias as “Jibreel,” was arrested and charged with conspiracy to help the Islamic State together with Dayne Christian (“Shakur”) and Darren Jackson (“Daoud”).

His admission of guilt details how he, in April 2015 already, had admitted to a friend that he was considering joining the terrorist group who had by that time set up a Quran Caliphate in Syria and Iraq. He emailed the friend an Islamic State e-book manual covering training, battlefield strategy, and instructions on even getting to Syria without legal authorities finding out.

Court documents revealed that: “They shared links for ISIS propaganda videos and websites, including ISIS beheading videos and lectures (by late Islamic lecturer) Anwar al-Awlaki espousing jihad.”

“They often all expressed their desire to travel to Syria to join ISIS.”

The case against Mr Hubbard ran into problems last year when it became public that the main undercover informant in the case, Mohammed Agbareia, had defrauded more than $300,000 from victims as he was working undercover for the FBI and heavily involved in the terrorism sting.
