ISIS Tuesday claimed responsibility for its first attack on U.S. soil in which two gunmen were killed after opening fire at an event in Texas showcasing cartoons mocking the Prophet Mohammad.Simpson was being investigated by the FBI over alleged plans to travel to Somalia to wage holy war, court records show.Many Muslims find drawings of the Prophet to be disrespectful or outright blasphemous, and such cartoons have been cited by Islamists as motivation in previous attacks. The American Freedom Defense Initiative, a group listed by civil rights watchdog the Southern Poverty Law Center as an anti-Muslim hate group, had organized the event, which drew about 200 people.At the event, attended by Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders and AFDI co-founder Pamela Geller, supporters held an exhibition of entries to a competition to draw caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad. AFDI had offered a $10,000 prize for the winner of the contest, billed a "free speech" event.
