Abusaad is guilty of coaching an undercover agent in the art of getting money from the US to international terrorist organizations such as al-Qaeda. For three months in 2018, the young former student from the University of Alabama taught the agent how to get funds to the mujahideen training for terrorism. The DOJ release notes that Abusaad believed in the cause, stating that funds were in need and that “you can’t prepare a soldier without equipment.”
Beyond how to get funds to terrorists, she also introduced agents to a second person who she claimed could have direct contact with al-Qaeda.
Abusaad’s defense was one of a troubled youth, mental illness, and a desire to do good for the people of Syria. She wrote a letter to the judge in her case, explaining her state of mind at the time as one of contempt for American troops and the way Muslims were treated at Abu Ghraib prison and Guantanamo Bay. Now, she claims to be a changed person who sees the error of her ways, according to WBMA.
She’ll be able to prove her value to society once she pays her debt to it, sometime in the next seven years or so.
