The news is out: [A New Jersey woman who served in the Army has been charged with providing material support to a Syrian terrorist group.
Maria Bell, 53, was arrested Wednesday at her home in Hopatcong, federal prosecutors said.
Bell is accused of sending money and other information to members of the al-Nusra Front and concealing her actions, according to U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito.
“Bell used encrypted applications to communicate with and provide advice to fighters based in Syria who were members of the (ANF) … fighting the Assad regime,” the Justice Department said in a press release, citing court documents.
Bell is accused of communicating directly with and giving money to one member of the terror organization through Western Union in an attempt to hide the source of the money and also “provided him advice on weapons and ammunition,” the release states.]
Having served in the Army, Maria should have known that no one is allowed to compete with the US government.
