Daniella Greene, fluent in German, worked as a contract linguist for the FBI. Starting in 2014, she was assigned to the FBI’s Detroit office and tasked with investigating Denis Cuspert, a German rapper-turned-ISIS recruiter who had fled to Syria. While researching Cuspert, Greene became infatuated. In June 2014, Greene told FBI officials she was going to Germany to visit family. Instead, she flew to Turkey and crossed into Syria to marry Cuspert. She quickly regretted her decisions and fled back to the United States, where she cooperated with FBI investigators and pleaded guilty to a charge of making false statements. She received a two-year prison sentence, a significantly more lenient punishment than others who joined or attempted to join ISIS have received.
