A Massachusetts man who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State militant group, or ISIS, was found guilty this week in a disturbing plot to behead a conservative blogger, attack police and “take down” the U.S. government.
David Daoud Wright, 28, faces life in federal prison.
Wright, his uncle, Usaamah Rahim, and a third man, Nicholas Rovinski, 25, talked about killing non-believers in the U.S. on behalf of ISIS starting in early 2015, federal prosecutors said.
