His parents were Libyan refugees. He was brought up and raised in their household, with their heritage, religion, beliefs, etc.. He obviously felt a connection to the country of Libya, enough to go and fight there for ISIS. And then to die killing British, who he seemed to hold in regard as enemies. You don't see any connection there at all? You see him as just any other Brit growing up in Manchester? Ok, I guess we all see things from different perspectives....maybe there is some truth to both. But most kids from Manchester don't randomly go fight for ISIS, do they?
He was evacuated from Libya in August 2014, this was before ISIS extended their terrorist operations to Libya.

So he was not fighting for ISIS.

The article states "Until a month before his rescue, Abedi was being monitored by UK security forces. The review into the Manchester attack found that, based on the information available at the time, the decision to close his case was sound."
So he was not fighting for anyone!
