Texas Gunman Planned To Join ISIS, Messaged Recruiter On Social Media

May 07, 2015  | 

One of the gunmen who targeted a Muhammed cartoon contest in Texas planned to join the Islamic State and purportedly messaged a recruiter in the weeks prior to the attack, reports the Daily Caller.

Elton Simpson reportedly contacted Muhammed "Miski" Hassan after learning about the contest in April, according to the New York Post. "When will they ever learn?" wrote Simpson in a private Twitter message.

Messages reveal Simpson planned to join the Islamic State in Syria last month and tried to recruit others. According to ABC News, Simpson wrote on April 10, "Bring your passport. If you have $4,000, that's enough to travel with." But his plans were thwarted after the FBI arrested six Americans for allegedly trying to join the Islamic State.

Neither suspect had any connection to Daesh. Both were what the media likes to call "lone wolf" criminals. The point is moot considering they were both killed during the commission of their crime.
