A Brooklyn judge ordered a suspected American militant who pledged allegiance to the terrorist leader of ISIS held without bail after he was arrested at Kennedy Airport, the Daily News has learned.
FBI agents nabbed Donald Ray Morgan, a 44-year-old ex-convict from North Carolina, on Aug. 2 when he returned to the United States after an eight-month stay in Lebanon, where his wife lives.
Apparently Morgan was arrested on weapons charges and not for any terrorism-related crime—but prosecutors cited his pro-ISIS Twitter posts in arguing that he shouldn't be released on bail. "It’s possible that he traffics in guns to people in this organization," the New York Daily News quotes a federal prosecutor as saying about ISIS. Morgan is expected to be transferred to North Carolina for trial.
