North Carolina middle class man caught trying to cross into Syria to join ISIS

NBC News presented the curious story of Don Morgan, from North Carolina, and his attempt to join ISIS, link here. Morgan had been a military school graduate and raised as a Roman Catholic.  After his life went wrong (with legal run-ins), he converted to Islam and radicalized himself on the Internet, believing that someone has to defend Sunni women and children in the Middle East – the karma problem.  He was stopped at the Turkish border and returned to the US, where he faces a federal weapons charge. He said he is not a terrorist, but what he did might meet the legal definition of supporting terrorism.
