Islamic State

An Ohio man, Christopher Lee Cornell, who planned to attack the U.S. Capitol address and kill President Obama during his 2015 State of the Union address was sentenced to 30 years in prison on Monday. Cornell had pledged his allegiance to ISIS.

Mohamed Abdullahi Hassan, known online as “Miski,” reportedly convinced young American recruits to join ISIS.

Obama has made the decision to send 300 troops to Cameroon to assist in the effort to curb the Nigerian militant Islamist group Boko Haram.
