NEW YORK — A Canadian man pleaded guilty Tuesday to U.S. charges that he sent money and provided long-distance support to Tunisian jihadists believed responsible for a 2009 suicide attack in Iraq that killed five American soldiers. The deal could spare him a term of life behind bars.
Faruq Khalil Muhammad ‘Isa entered the plea in federal court in Brooklyn, N.Y., for a murder conspiracy charge that carried a maximum life sentence. He instead faces a 26-year prison term followed by deportation as part of the deal, which a judge still must sign off on.
Obviously a very alienated individual.
