Washington: A retweet on social networking site Twitter landed a 22-year-old Queens’ resident Ali Saleh in trouble after The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) concluded he wanted to join dreaded militant group Islamic State.
According to a report in NYDailyNews, Saleh has been openly tweeting his twisted intentions since 2013 while making several attempts to get to ISIS battlefields in Syria, FBI special agent Bret Luhmann stated in a complaint unsealed in Brooklyn Federal Court.
"I'm ready to die (for ISIS) . . . prison is nothing," Saleh stated, retweeting a message that was posted by another user.
Some reports also claim that FBI is tracking accounts retweeting such propagandist tweets and are arresting them as suspects.
Saleh was ordered arrest without bail. However, he did not utter a word in courtroom and kept quiet when probed by Megistrate Judge Roanne Mann, states NYDailyNews report.
