The rogue FBI translator who married an ISIS operative she was directed to investigate refused to field media questions outside of her home in Syracuse, New York.

Daniela Greene, who lives on a block with a large population of Muslim immigrants, ducked questions from the New York Post

The 38-year-old was sentenced to two years in prison in 2014 after returning from the Middle East, where she had married German rapper-turned-ISIS recruiter Denis Cuspert and notified him of the investigation.

Greene was working out of the FBI’s Detroit office when she left her husband and snuck into Syria from Turkey.

The husband, Matthew Greene, would only say that his relationship with Daniela Greene “ is over.”

FBI Pulls Cybersecurity Expert from Plane After Blowing Whistle on Vulnerabilities

A cybersecurity expert who recently exposed vulnerabilities in airplane technology systems is now a target of the FBI, Fox News reports.

Chris Roberts, of the Colorado-based security firm One World Labs, said two FBI agents and two uniformed cops removed him from a commercial flight after landing in Syracuse on Wednesday night.

The investigation came just hours after Fox News aired an interview with Roberts in which he said the cyberhacking of planes is possible.

“We can still take planes out of the sky thanks to the flaws in the in-flight entertainment systems. Quite simply put, we can theorize on how to turn the engines off at 35,000 feet and not have any of those damn flashing lights go off in the cockpit.”

Roberts said he thought he was doing the government a favor.

“You have one element in the FBI reaching out to people like me for help, but another element doing a hell of a job burning those bridges,” Roberts said. “Those of us who do threat research are doing it for the right reasons, and we work to build relationships with the intelligence community because we want to help them identify weaknesses before they become a problem.”

The FBI confiscated computer files and electronic devices, Fox News reported.

The FBI declined to comment.

An effort is afoot to make Syracuse University the first college with a curriculum based around emergency management and homeland security.

One of the leaders of the effort is Sen. John DeFrancisco, R-Syracuse, who said he has been quietly nudging Gov. Andrew Cuomo and SU to embrace the idea, Syracuse.com reports.

“It was our proposal from the Senate that ignited this mention in the State of the State,” DeFrancisco said after a speech in Albany. 

He cautioned that a campus in Syracuse is still far off.

“The governor’s got to be convinced,” DeFrancisco said.” And I hope he will be.”

Deadly Bath Salts Became Big Craze in Syracuse, Making it ‘Ground Zero’ for Synthetic Drug

Bath salts, a synthetic stimulant blamed for the deaths and panic attacks of users nationwide, appeared to become a craze in Syracuse before spreading elsewhere, the Syracuse Post-Standard reports.

A former candidate of the Syracuse Common Council received a shipment of the drug, which he called “molly,” a name for the pure form of Ecstasy.

It was anything but pure.

But as he circulated different version at swingers’ parties in the Syracuse area in 2010, partygoers became agitated and dehydrated, the Post-Standard wrote, citing a DEA investigation.

“And Syracuse apparently was ground zero in the United States,” the newspaper wrote, attributing the DEA.
