Colorado woman implicated
for support of terrorist group

Obama calls on Congress
to support Syria's rebels


Teenager pleads
guilty to aiding
extremist conspiracy
DENVER (AP) - A 19-year-old
Colorado woman pleaded guilty
Wednesday to trying to help the
militant Islamic State group under
a plea deal in the terrorism case
that requires her to give authorities
information about other Americans
with the same intentions.
Shannon Conley, wearing a
black and brown headscarf over
her striped jail jumpsuit, entered
the plea in federal court to one
count of conspiracy to provide
material support to a foreign ter-
rorist organization. She could
face up to five years in federal
prison and a $250,000 fine when
she is sentenced in January.
Conley, a nurse's aide from

Arvada, said nothing in court,
aside from acknowledging that she
understood the terms of the plea
that says she must divulge informa-
tion about possible co-conspirators.
Prosecutors saidtheywill seek a
lighter sentence if she cooperates.
After the hearing, Conley's pub-
lic defender, Robert Pepin, said she
has been horrified by the atrocities
committed by the Islamic State
group since her arrest and offered
her condolences to those who have
been caught up in its "slaughter
and oppression."
"The fact that she was arrested
may very well have saved her,"
Pepin said of his client, whom he
referred to as Halima, the name
she adopted after her conversion
to Islam.
The FBI first became aware of
her growing interest in extrem-
ism last November after Conley
alarmed employees of an Arvada

church by wandering around and
taking notes on the layout of the
campus, court documents say.
The church, Faith Bible Cha-
pel, was the scene of a 2007 shoot-
ing in which a man killed two
missionary workers.
Agents with the Joint Terror-
ism Task Force then met several
times with Conley over eight
months to discourage her and
suggestshe explore humanitarian
work instead.
Agents also encouraged her
parents to talk to her about find-
ing more moderate beliefs.
But Conley said she wanted to
use her American military train-
ing with the U.S. Army Explor-
ers in a holy war overseas, even
though she knew it was illegal,
authorities said. She added that
she would use her medical train-
ing to aid the group if she could
not fightcwith them.

Republicans and
Democrats reach
consensus about
ISIS engagement
Bending for once to the will
of the White House, Republi-
cans and Democrats coalesced
Thursday behind President
Barack Obama's call to train
and arm Syrian rebels fight-
ing Islamic State militants and
pointed toward votes in the heat
of a midterm election campaign.
"We ought to give the presi-
dent what he's asking for,"
House Speaker John Boehner,
R-Ohio, said, although he swift-
ly added that many Republicans
believe the Democratic com-
mander in chief's strategy is
too tepid to crush militants who
have overrun parts of Iraq and
Syria and beheaded two Ameri-
can journalists.

On the 13th anniversary of
the 9/11 attacks, Senate Majority
Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said
he expected legislation ratifying
Obama's request to clear Con-
gress by the end of next week
when lawmakers hope to wrap
up their work and go home to
campaign for re-election.
Congress' two other top offi-
cials, Senate Republican leader
Mitch McConnell and .House
Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi,
also said Obama would likely get
the support he seeks.
Congress is in the midst of a
two-week session that had been
expected to focus on domestic
issues, principally legislation
to extend routine government
funding beyond the end of
the Sept. 30 budget year. That
agenda changed abruptly on
Wednesday night, when Obama
delivered a prime-time speech
from the White House seek-
ing "additional authorities and
resources to train and equip"
rebels. The forces are simul-

Solutions to Public Health Challenges

taneously trying to overthrow
Syrian President Bashar Assad
and defeat militants seeking to
create an Islamist caliphate in
the heart of the Middle East.
Obama says he already has
the authority to order airstrikes
against militants in Syria,
although so far, those attacks
have come only in neighboring
The White House and many
lawmakers say deployment of
U.S. troops to train and equip
Syrian rebels - activity planned
to take place in Saudi Arabia -
would require additional con-
gressional approval.
Onthe morningafter Obama's
speech, the administration
deployed a battalion of officials
to brief lawmakers, including
Gen. Martin Dempsey, chair-
man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Defense Secretary Chuck
Hagel and Secretary of State
John Kerry are expected to tes-
tify in next week at public hear-
ings in advance of any votes in
There was a strong political
subtext to the developments,
eight weeks before voters pick a
new House and settle a struggle
for Senate control.
Asked whether the topic
would be part of the campaign
now unfolding, Sen. Jeanne
Shaheen, D-N.H., who is on the
November ballot, said, "Every-
thing is going to be an issue."
"We do not want to go
home without voting on some
measure that goes toward
destroying and defeating ISIS
wherever it exists," said Rep.
Michael McCaul, R-Texas, using
an alternate acronym for the
Reid accused Republicans of
taking cheap political shots at
the president, and said, "This is
a time for the rhetoric of cam-
paign commercials to go away."
At the same time, candidates
seeking re-election will bel
required to vote on the presi-
dent's request, and challeng-
ers will be on the spot to state
their positions.
