FBI Agent Went To Syria To Secretly Marry ISIS Fighter She Was Supposed To Be Investigating

by 11 months ago

FBI agent Daniela Greene’s job was to investigate an Islamic State terrorist. The FBI agent did such an impressive probe of her target that she ended up falling in love with the jihadi, moving to Syria and marrying him. Somebody’s taking too many cues from Carrie Mathison.

Greene, who is a 38-year-old FBI translator with top-secret security clearance, was investigating ISIS fighter Denis Cuspert. He started as a German rapper with a stage name of Deso Dogg and once toured with DMX. He became radicalized and moved to Syria in 2013 so that he could join the Islamic State. Cuspert, who changed his name to Abu Talha al-Almani, appeared in a 2014 video where he pledged allegiance to ISIS. In one song he praised Osama bin Laden and threatened Barack Obama with a throat-slitting gesture and held a severed human head in a propaganda video.

From Vice:

On June 11, 2014, Green told her FBI supervisor in Indianapolis that she was heading to Germany to visit family. She then boarded an Air Canada flight bound for Turkey and proceeded to slip across the border into Syria. A month later, she married Cuspert and told him “that she was employed by the FBI and that the FBI had an open investigation into his activities,” according to court records.
