According to a former bunk mate, Kang was vocal about his beliefs. He believed that the 9/11 terrorist attack was an “inside job” as well as other conspiracy beliefs.

He is also accused of attempting to deliver military documents and training to ISIS fighters.

Despite making pro-ISIS comments as early as 2011, Kang was allowed to continue in the military.

Kang was a member of the 25th Infantry Division. He was stationed at Schofield Barracks in Honolulu at the time of his arrest.
