Conversation with undercover FBI agent:

“If the ameer command a target here we will follow...Now brother if you have any contacts with any commanders let them know we are in the process of organizing. [ . . . ] Its a little slower here cause of security and spies but we are on it. Oaths have been given. When the time is right we will strike.

“In all honesty the best way to bet them is to break their will. With the U.S. no matter how many you kill they will keep coming unless the soldiers and the american public no longer have the will to fight.”“United States of America v. Hasan Edmonds and Jonas M. Edmonds,” U.S. District Court Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division, March 25, 2015, http://www.justice.gov/sites/default/files/opa/press-releases/attachments/2015/03/26/edmonds_complaint_0.pdf.

Conversation with undercover FBI agent:

“If we can break their spirits we will win. Whenever we attack them instead of killing them all try to take a few as prisioners for either ransom or to show the world the hours the kufar army will suffer at the hands of the lions of Allah.

Conversation with undercover FBI agent:

“Not be easy but i'd rather struggle and strive hard in the cause of Allah rather than sit back and live a 'comfortable' life. And what you say is true brother but the banners are up. The State has been established and it is our duty to heed the call. InshaAllah we will complete our task or be granted shahada1 1 trying. And yes I look forward to the training. I am already in the american kafir 1 2 army (back when I was still in this dunyah1 3 and not muslim) and now I wish only to serve in the army of Allah alongside my true brothers.”“United States of America v.
