An affidavit alleged the 41-year-old Al-Ghazi began using social media in July 2014 to pledge his support to the militant group and to recruit members. He also made references while chatting online with FBI sources about staging terror attacks in the U.S.
He was arrested in June 2015 while trying to buy an AK-47 assault rifle from an undercover FBI agent.
His attorney wasn’t immediately available for comment.
