MINNEAPOLIS — Abdirahmaan Muhumed is the name of one of the Americans who died fighting alongside ISIS.
The terrorist fighter has reportedly died in Syria. The ISIS militant had worked for Delta Airlines in the U.S. The airport the ISIS militant worked at was Minneapolis International Airport.
There is an ongoing FBI investigation, and Abdirahmaan allegedly had a secret clearance at the U.S. airport he worked at.
“You have the same combination of vulnerable kids susceptible to crazy ideas, dissolution, giving up hope on achieving the American Dream,” Somali community organizer Omar Jamal said. “What’s the alternative to fight against these people? We have to come together and do something about this.”
This comes after Obama announced that it was ready to destroy and wipe ISIS off the face of the planet.
According to Obama, U.S. does not have a definite plan for airstrikes in Syria, 350 U.S. troops are expected to arrive in Iraq.
On Wednesday, amid tensions in Syria, another American journalist was shown beheaded in a video released by ISIS. This time, the journalist was named Steven Sotloff.
The bottom line is this, our objective is clear and that is to degrade and destroy (Islamic State) so that it’s no longer a threat not just to Iraq but also the region and to the United States,” Obama said at a news conference in Estonia.
FBI is currently investigating whether there are more ISIS ties with other U.S. airports.
