HONOLULU (AP) — A former bunk mate of a U.S. soldier accused of pledging loyalty to the Islamic state group says they debated conspiracy theories.

Dustin Lyles says Army Sgt. 1st Class Ikaika (ee-ky-kah) Kang believed the moon landing was faked, questioned the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and thought the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks were an inside job coordinated by the U.S. government.

Kang is scheduled to appear in federal court in Honolulu Thursday for a detention hearing.

Lyles tells The Associated Press the terrorism charges against Kang come as a shock. He says he never heard Kang express support for the enemy.

Lyles is medically retired from the Army and says they bunked together for a month in 2013.

Kang’s lawyer says that Kang may suffer from service-related mental health issues.

This story has been corrected to show that Kang’s lawyer says he may suffer from service-related mental health issues, not that he does suffer from service-related mental health issues.
