GIANT CROCK - INSTEAD OF A MEDAL FOR FIGHTING A TYRANT, FEDS ARREST HIM: American who fought with "Al Qaeda(???)" against Syria's Assad arrested in Virginia | Fox News

An American who has gone by the name Eric Harroun has taken up arms with Islamists, most recently in Syria.

A former Army soldier from Phoenix who joined rebels fighting the Syrian government and boasted to of his exploits as a Muslim soldier of fortune earlier this month was arrested Wednesday in Virginia and could face life in prison.

Eric Harroun, 30, who left the Army in 2003 on full disability pay after a truck accident, was charged with conspiring to use a rocket-propelled grenade while fighting with the al-Nusrah Front, an organization also known as Al Qaeda in Iraq. Harroun, who was in Syria or Turkey when he spoke to by Skype, was nabbed shortly after flying in to Dulles International Airport after a voluntary interview with FBI agents, according to a criminal complaint filed Thursday.
