Colorado Teen Arrested on Terror Charges at DIA

Maybe it’s just me, but I kind of like Colorado living. We have some pretty good food, views, and life is pretty easy. Joining a terrorist organization in Iraq just doesn’t seem like a better option. However, I guess Colorado just isn’t for everyone.

By everyone, I mean 19-year-old Shannon Maureen Conley from Arvada. She is the Colorado teenager who was recently arrested at Denver International Airport (DIA), and accused of attempting to join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, aka ISIL or ISIS, the terrorist organization currently taking control over parts of Iraq and Syria.

After many accounts of strange behavior in Colorado, including joining the U.S. Army Explorers in September 2013 to learn military tactics and firearms, Conley was arrested at DIA in April after purchasing a one-way ticket to Turkey where she was then planning on trying to travel to Syria to marry an ISIS member she met online.

She faces charges of providing material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization, the FBI said.
