A U.S. solider has been charged after allegedly talking about wanting to help ISIS strike the 9/11 Memorial in New York City and target U.S. soldiers in the Middle East, according to senior law enforcement officials.

The officials say Cole James Bridges, 20, from Stowe, Ohio, allegedly went into an online forum and chatted with a person he thought was with ISIS, but was in fact an FBI undercover agent.

Bridges is currently assigned to Fort Stewart in Georgia with the 3rd infantry division of the Army. He’s now charged with attempted material support of a terrorism organization and attempting to kill U.S. soldiers.
