Lawyer for U.S. Army sergeant accused of terrorism suggests entrapment

Lawyer for U.S. Army sergeant accused of terrorism suggests entrapment | 14 July 2017 | The lawyer for a U.S. Army sergeant charged in Hawaii with trying to provide material support to Islamic State extremists said on Thursday his client suffers from mental illness that FBI agents exploited in a "sting" operation leading to his arrest. Questions about Ikaika Erik Kang's state of mind and the possibility of entrapment were raised by defense lawyer Birney Bervar in remarks to reporters after his client was ordered to remain in jail without bond. Bervar said he believed Kang was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder or some other mental problem that the Army failed to address properly after Kang returned from deployments to Iraq in 2011 and Afghanistan in 2014.
