Once again, as is always the case in stories of this kind, absolutely no indication is given as to where Asher Abid Khan learned about Islam, and from whom. The idea that there could be Islamic State recruitment going on in the United States is apparently of no interest to U.S. officials.

Khan was living in Australia when he and a friend from Texas came up with a plan to travel to Turkey and then to Syria in 2014 to fight for the Islamic State, according to prosecutors. Khan told a recruiter that he wanted to join the Islamic State, prosecutors say.

Khan’s family, though, convinced him to come back to the U.S. Prosecutors say that once Khan was home, he got his friend in contact with the recruiter.
