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.
