Isse is a 2002 graduate of Roosevelt High School. He was arrested February 2009 in Seattle along with Salah Ahmed and Kamal Hassan, who are also awaiting sentencing. He pleaded guilty last April to providing material support to terrorists.

Isse's attorney has argued that his client was not aware of al Shabaab when he left for Somalia in 2007, because the group was only in its nascent stages. At the time, many from Somalia had heard stories of atrocities on the part of Ethiopian troops in Somalia.
