General Info:
Cole James Bridges is an American soldier who has been arrested on terrorism charges, including suggesting wiring explosives into buildings as part of an Islamic State plot to kill US troops as well as allegedly planning an attack on the 9/11 Memorial.

He is charged with the assistance of a foreign terrorist organization and the attempted murder of US military service members.

Bridges expressed his support for the terrorist Islamic State group (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) on social media.

After joining the US Army in late 2019, Bridges began unknowingly communicating with a member of the FBI in October last year, with the bureau employee posing as an Islamic State supporter who claimed to be in touch with the terrorist group in the Middle East.

Then he said that he used his army training to guide supposed Islamic State fighters about potential attacks in New York City, including on the 9/11 Memorial.

In December 2020, Bridges allegedly provided diagrams of “specific military maneuvers” to help Islamic State fighters “maximize the lethality of attacks on US troops” while also pledging his allegiance to the terrorist group in videos.

He suggested militants should wire particular buildings with explosives in order to kill American troops. If convicted, Bridges faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for each of his alleged crimes.
