The recent arrest of six individuals living in the United States, accused of attempting to aid and support the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), underscores the continuing threat posed by radicalized individuals operating within the respective borders of the United States and her Western allies.

The group, hailing from Missouri, Illinois and New York, respectively, are accused of sending military equipment to an ISIS operative who himself left St. Louis in 2013 to fight alongside ISIS in Syria.
