A National Guardsman arrested for supporting the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, had allegedly planned an attack on a military post in Illinois, the Justice Department said Thursday.

Army National Guard Spc. Hasan Edmonds, 22, was arrested at Chicago Midway International Airport Wednesday night while he was attempting to fly to Cairo to allegedly join ISIS, the department said in a statement.

Members of the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force in Chicago also arrested Edmonds' cousin, Jonas Edmonds, 29, at his home in Aurora, Illinois.

Both men are U.S. citizens.

The cousins allegedly told an FBI undercover employee their plan for an armed attack on the U.S. military facility in northern Illinois where Hasan Edmonds had been training.

According to court documents, an undercover FBI agent sent Edmonds a friend request on Facebook in late 2014, and in January, Edmonds and the agent exchanged a series of messages on Facebook, and Hasan allegedly discussed plans to travel overseas with his cousin to fight with ISIS extremists, CBS Chicago reported.

"The State has been established and it is our duty to heed the call," he allegedly wrote. "I look forward to the training. I am already in the american kafir [infidel] army ...and now I wish only to serve in the army of Allah alongside my true brothers."

In another message, he allegedly wrote, either he and his cousin would make it overseas, "or bring the flames of war to the heart od [sic] this land with Allah's permission."

Jonas Edmonds allegedly told the undercover employee that they would use uniforms and information from Hasan Edmonds to access the facility and target officers.

The attack was allegedly planned to be carried out after Edmonds departed for Cairo. The Justice Department didn't provide a specific timeframe for how long after Edmonds' departure the attack would take place.

"Throughout the course of this investigation, the defendants were closely and carefully monitored to ensure the safety of the public and our service men and women." FBI Special Agent Robert Holley said in the statement.

After layovers in Detroit and Amsterdam, Edmonds had planned to arrive in Cairo Thursday and allegedly go on to fight on behalf of ISIS using his military training.

Last week, a U.S. Air Force veteran, Tairod Nathan Webster Pugh, was indicted on terrorism charges after allegedly plotting to travel to Syria to join ISIS.

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."
