By BI: Houston terror suspect Omar Al-Hardan believes her husband is innocent. Al-Hardan is accused of providing support to the terror group ISIS. “I’m so bad. I’m sick. I can’t sleep, I can’t eat because my husband is in jail,” 18-year-old Al Kokiss said. “I need my husband here with me. I can’t.”
KHOU Al Hardan and his barely 18-year-old wife, Haenne Al Kokiss, live in a small Southwest Houston apartment with their 10-month-old son and his parents. She is adamant that her husband has no ties to terrorism.
Federal prosecutors accuse Omar Al Hardan of providing support to the terror group ISIS. He appeared in a federal courtroom in Houston Friday morning.
Court papers say Al-Jayab traveled to Syria in 2013, “took up arms with terrorist organizations and concealed that conduct from immigration authorities” when he returned to the U.S. the following year.
The entire family came to the United States as Iraqi refugees. Federal investigators say Al Hardan was radicalized after he came here in 2009. (So if they all came here in 2009, how old was his wife when he married her? The reporter says she was 16. But he probably married her before that)
