According to court documents, the FBI said Kang swore allegiance to the Islamic State leader.>> The government should have offered a hand.>> But Kang's attorney, Birney Bervar, argues the army failed to address his client's mental problems after he returned from deployments to Iraq in 2011 and Afghanistan in 2014.
