An Ohio man on Wednesday pleaded guilty to supporting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and hatching a plan to launch an attack in the United States.
According to federal investigators, Al-Ghazi made a series of posts on social media in support of ISIS and its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and also took steps to produce propaganda videos on its behalf.
He pleaded guilty on Wednesday to attempting to provide material support to ISIS, which is a designated foreign terrorist group, and two counts of possessing firearms while a felon.
Al-Ghazi changed his name from Robert McCollum last year.
Sentencing will take place on June 23.
