An FBI employee in 2014 traveled to Syria, married an ISIS terrorist, and told him he was being investigated, CNN reported.

Daniela Greene was later prosecuted and served two years in prison, her sentence reduced after she cooperated with authorities. Her case was never publicized, and the court documents sealed because "charges against her would contribute to a substantial likelihood of imminent danger to a party, witness, or other person as well as a substantial likelihood that the ongoing investigation will be seriously jeopardized," prosecutors argued at the time. 

Greene started working for the FBI in 2011 as a contract linguist. Her job came with a top-secret national security clearance. In June 2014, she flew to Turkey and then traveled to Syria, where she married Denis Cuspert, an ISIS pitchman who had a major influence as an online recruiter for violent jihadists. She quickly realized her mistake.

"I was weak, and didn't know how to handle anything anymore," she wrote July 8 to a person in the U.S. "I really made a mess of things this time."

A day later, she wrote: "I am gone, and I can't come back. I wouldn't even know how to make it through, if I tried to come back. I am in a very harsh environment, and I don't know how long I will last here, but it doesn't matter, it's all a little too late . . ."

She emailed again July 22, 2014: "Not sure if they told you that I will probably go to prison for a long time if I come back, but that is life. I wish I could turn back time some days."

Greene returned to the U.S. after about a month in Syria. She was arrested Aug. 8. 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Gillice said Greene had "violated the public trust, the trust of the officials who granted her security clearance, and the trust of those with whom she worked and, in doing so, endangered our nation's security."
