A Colorado woman has been charged in a terrorism investigation that may have ties to an insurgent group.

Shannon Maureen Conley allegedly told members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force that she was a Muslim convert and “If they think I’m a terrorist I’ll give them something to think I am.”

Conley also reportedly told investigators she liked the idea of “Guerrilla Warfare because she could do it alone.”

Conley was arrested at Denver International Airport. Investigators say she had a ticket to Turkey, materials about Jihad and Al Qaeda and CDs and DVDs labeled "Anwar Al-Awlaki."

Al-Awlaki was the Colorado-educated terror suspect assassinated by a U.S. drone missile in Yemen.

Conley is charged with conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.

That organization is the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, known as ISIS.
