Two men are charged with plotting attacks on America for ISIS.

One is from Illinois.

Federal prosecutors say Mohamad Elshinawy accepted money from ISIS operatives.

Officials say his case stands out because he had extensive communications with operatives overseas.

A former Illinois National Guard soldier admits to supporting ISIS.

Hasan Edmonds pleaded guilty to plotting to attack the facility in Joliet where he was stationed.

He was about to leave the country for training when he was arrested.
