Student who Uncovered College Support for ISIS may Face Criminal Charges

The Barry University student who helped conservative firebrand James O’Keefe secretly record a videoshowing school staff supposedly support ISIS could be facing criminal charges, according to a local news station.

Laura Loomer, a senior studying communications, helped O’Keefe’s organization, Project Veritas, capture secret video of staff members at Barry apparently offering advice on how to start a pro-Islamic State organization. Loomer pretended that she wanted to start an organization, dubbed Sympathetic Students in Support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, which would send humanitarian and financial aid to the Islamic State.

At one point in the video, a staffer for Barry suggests altering the group’s name, because “technically, we’re at war with ISIS.” Barry argues it is ludicrous to claim anybody at the school backs Islamic terrorism and says it is the victim of deception and misleading edits to the video.
