Re: Something fishy about this story
Saving him from his own naivety or not, it does seem a little harsh to convict the chap with a terrorism offence. He was after all responding to western propaganda that ISIS are evil and should be fought.
Smacks a little of hypocrisy, does it not?
If the individuals or group(s) contacting him are "terrorists" or have "terrorist connections", even if he doesn't know it, that would be of interest to on going investigations.
While he himself may not be a "terrorist", denying access to the information may be classed as indirectly defending the actions of said "terrorists".
Possibly the reason for the lesser offence.
