FBI agents tried more than once to discourage a 19-year-old U.S. woman who said she was intent on waging jihad in the Middle East before arresting her in April as she boarded a flight she hoped would ultimately get her to Syria, court documents unsealed Wednesday show.Shannon Maureen Conley had told agents that she wanted to use her American military training from the U.S. Army Explorers to start a holy war overseas, even though she knew it was illegal, according to the federal court records. Conley was arrested on April 8 at Denver International Airport, where she told agents she planned to live with a suitor she met online, apparently a Tunisian man who claimed to be fighting for an Al-Qaeda splinter group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS). Conley has been charged with conspiring to help a foreign terrorist organization.
