Kansas mom Allison Fluke-Ekren pleaded guilty to terrorism charges in a Virginia courtroom on Tuesday (June 7).

Allison joined ISIS and became a terrorist trainer.

She led a battalion of female fighters through battlefields from Libya to Syria, and she admitted that she wanted to attack targets in the U.S.

According to prosecutors, she was the top female military trainer for the Islamic state.

She was captured in Syria, and she admitted that she wanted to attack a midwest college campus and a shopping mall.

She stated, “any attack that did not kill a large number of individuals to be a waste of resources.”

A former friend who knew Allison when she lived in Kansas says she was radicalized when she moved overseas, and she doesn’t recognize her in pictures now.

She just changed into someone I don’t know.

When I see the picture, I’m like looking at it, and she looks empty, and she looks cold.

She was very sympathetic to the Islamic State, and how we needed to, you know, support the women and children.

Prosecutors said while in Syria, Allison commanded female ISIS fighters, and trained over 100 women and girls (as young as 10 years old) to use AK-47 assault rifles, grenades, and explosive suicide vests.

One of her daughters was one of the trainees, but she escaped.

Reportedly, Allison has at least seven children. 

Her second husband was linked to ISIS, he and one of her sons were killed in an air strike in Syria.

She was emotionless in the courtroom on Tuesday until prosecutors mentioned her children may be called to testify against her at her sentencing hearing on October 25.

Allison Fluke-Ekren could face 20 years in prison.
