Following in the footsteps of the “prophet.”

Via Daily Beast:

Ameer Abu-Hammad allegedly asked agents if they would search his phone for “other stuff” after he posted about jihad on Facebook. Oops.

A North Carolina teen suspected of providing material support to ISIS, Hamas, and a branch of al Qaeda was instead busted for child porn.

In October, federal agents searched 18-year-old Ameer Abu-Hammad’s home and electronic devices seeking evidence that he was providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization. When agents confronted Abu-Hammad at college, he asked them if they would also search his phone for “other stuff,” according to a criminal complaint.

“The agents asked him to clarify and soon afterwards, he admitted that he had additionally used the phone to view pornogrpahy online that included minors,” the complaint continues, adding that Abu-Hammad allegedly said he prefered his laptop for adult porn and his phone for kid porn.

“The youngest child he recalled having seen within pornographic images was a child of approximately 9 or 10 years of age,” the complaint said. “Hammad admitted that he had been viewing child pornography for roughly two months.”

Graphic descriptions of the pornography found on Abu-Hammad’s devices note that it featured children as young as six to nine months. Agents said they found approximately 39 images on his devices, featuring mostly young girls.
