"FBI Translator Goes Rogue, Marries ISIS Fighter", on AC360


FBI Translator Goes Rogue, Marries ISIS Fighter”, was an 8-minute report on CNN’s AC360 Monday night, May 1, 2017.
 
The terrorist was Denis Cuspert, who had developed a career as a rapper in Germany.
 
FBI translator Daniela Greene was assigned to tail him, but when she went to Germany, she fell in love, followed him to Syria through Turkey, and married him.  This was no honeypot.
 

 
Cuspert would be “KIA”.  Eventually she came to her senses and returned to the US and was immediately arrested.  She has plead guilty and her sentence was kept to two years plus probation (or parole) for cooperating.
 
But this does play like a short film, a teaser for a Hollywood thriller.
