Back in October two of the teens (19 and 16 year old brothers) went to early morning prayers with their father. When they came home their dad went to sleep and they put into motion a plan that they had designed to sneak out and make their way to Syria. Going with the two boys would be their 17-year-old sister.
The plan was to fly to Istanbul then drive to Syria to live in the Islamic caliphate.
The FBI detained the teens at O’Hare airport as they tried to travel on to Turkey. They are part of a growing trend of American citizens who are doing their best (or worst) to join their ideological equals in ISIS. So far this year 15 Americans have been arrested trying to leave the USA to make their way to the front lines in Iraq and Syria.
