Skip to comments.Clues to how a young man went from ‘classic teenage boy’ to accused Islamic State sympathizer

A skeletal portrait of the Sterling, Va., man federal authorities have accused of obstructing a terrorism investigation began to come into focus on Monday that of a directionless youth who converted to Islam at the end of high school, married a significantly older Muslim woman, had a child who died as an infant, and became increasingly religious until an arrest Friday that allegedly included him destroying a computer thumb drive that authorities suspect may have contained evidence of terrorism-related activity.
In the months before that arrest, court filings allege, Sean Andrew Duncan, 21, who will appear in federal court on Tuesday, acted in a manner that was indicative of an individual planning and researching how to conduct an attack, including research into materials relating to the Islamic State, terrorist attacks, weapons, surveillance tactics and body armor.
Now, family members are struggling to reconcile the man they had believed Duncan to be with the one federal agents say he had become.

only clue needed: islam.
He believed Obama and the left, that he should hate America and Christianity.
> He believed Obama and the left... <
He also believed George W. Bush: “Islam is peace”.
Buinch of quivering chickens in the article, either that or not real refused to give name due to safety concerns
There's part of the problem right there. He is a "child" at the age of 21...
Unless they had no contact with him whatsoever, it is impossible that his family was unaware that:
1) He converted to Islam at the end of high school,
2) He married a significantly older Muslim woman,
3) He had a child who died as an infant, and
4) He became increasingly religious
This did not come out of left field.
I blame liberalism.
“Islamists are misunderstood”
black supremacist NOI rappers
Americans were NAZIs in Iraq
Christianity is to be rejected
9-11 was a fraud the US/Jews did it
on and on
Mind full of mush did what the culture told him was superior.
“He seemed normal” as he voiced approval of the beheadings of Westerners.
Something does not compute.
My daughter has a pretty little cat named Angus. He spends a lot of time stalking the other cats, taking their favorite sleeping spaces, attacking them when they are least suspecting... One day, when my daughter was about 8, she started referring to Angus as Abdul Gazazi.
An 8 year old understands, yet it is somehow incomprehensible to the left.
Permanent residency via a green card........
He wasn’t aware of Bush at age 11 or 12.
He is such a good boy!
A child at 21?
I was a soldier at 17, a commissioned officer at 20.
What the hell were you thinking as you raised this waste of oxygen, Woman????
Islam has always allowed bad actors to continue their criminal acts, with the excuse that they are now doing the act on behalf of Allah.
He’s such a good boy that his parents took him out of one school where he had friends and moved him to another school where he met some Islamists.
Allegedly he was having problems at that other school. Doesn’t say if it was studying or fighting.
But the “good kid” bit doesn’t pass muster.
PAY ATTENTION TO ME!!!!
Patsy. ISIS is looking for white perpetrators who can “pass security” profiling.
His almost second wife (from Syria) was listed as an un-named co-conspirator.
The first and only clue: “converted to *slam”. Conversion to the death cult is ipso facto rejecting American citizenship and must be met with immediate confiscation of passport and deportation to the m*slim country of one’s choice.
