San Bernardino shooting roundup 1

As the Obama Administration, which took 5 years to call the Ft. Hood jihad an act of terror, continues to hold back from calling the San Bernardino massacre ‘terrorism,’ mounting evidence is proving that is exactly what it was…and that it may represent a “new method” of terror by ISIS and related groups, according to analysts.

Husband and wife Muslim jihadists Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, were killed in a gun battle with police after murdering 14 people and wounding at least 17 at a Christmas Party at the Inland Regional Center, where Farook worked.

Previous reports claimed Farook had an “argument” at the party, but that was later proven false. Farook is now described as to have “suddenly left”  — only to return to carry out his pre-planned attack.

What is clear is that Farook and Malik prepared for 2-3 weeks for a full-scale attack on the pre-planned party, purchasing weapons, body armor and explosive materials. In addition, their home — described by sources as an “IED factory” was “booby trapped” to harm responders after the attack.

Neighbors also reported “dozens” of packages were delivered to the couple’s home in the past 2 weeks, and that 3-4 “Middle Easterners” came and went at all hours, hinting at the possibility of a larger conspiracy or cell.

The couple left their 6-month old child with a relative, claiming they had a “doctor’s appointment,” after which they set out on their act of terror — the largest mass-casualty shooting in the U.S. since Sandy Hook.

Dressed in tactical gear, and toting assault rifles, Farook Tashfeen Malik, burst into the San Bernardino social services facility and shot up a conference room where Farook’s employer, the county health department, was hosting a Christmas party. The pair escaped in a black SUV after the attack, which authorities said was over within minutes, only to resurface four hours later and less than 2 miles away in a fierce gun battle on the city’s main drag.
“They came prepared to do what they did, as if they were on a mission,” San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said, the DailyMail reported.
Like the devout Muslims who opened fire on the Jewish day school in France in 2012, the jihad couple also had GoPro cameras strapped to their body armor and wore tactical clothing, including vests stuffed with ammunition magazines.

Analysts are noting how this is the first time in the U.S. that a husband and wife team carried out Islamic terror — but it comes just 3 weeks after another couple were ringleaders of the Paris attacks that killed 132.

It is theorized this is a new approach taken by ISIS or related terror groups, in order to conceal terrorists in a family situation to avoid suspicion, according to former CIA analyst Bob Briggand.
A Muslim family with a child arouses far less suspicion (than single men) from friends, neighbors and co-workers and permits terror attacks to be carried out with a greater element of surprise and penetration.”
Farook was born in Illinois, and was raised in Southern California. Farook’s family was originally from South Asia, while Malik was believed to be from Pakistan and had lived in Saudi Arabia before coming to the United States.

Farook reportedly met Malik online, met her in Saudi Arabia where they were married, returning to the U.S. to begin their “new life” as a possible family terror cell.
Patrick Baccari, a co-worker of Farook who suffered minor wounds from shrapnel slicing through the building’s bathroom walls, told the Associated Press he been sitting at the same table as Farook at the banquet Wednesday morning, but his co-worker suddenly disappeared, leaving his coat on his chair. Baccari also said that Farook had traveled to Saudi Arabia for about a month this past spring.
The couple had a baby later this year. Baccari added that the reserved Farook showed no signs of unusual behavior, although he grew out his beard several months ago.
As TRN previously reported, Farook’s father desribed his son as follows:
“He’s Muslim. He was very religious. He would go to work, come back, go to pray, come back. A very devout Muslim.” Farook said he hasn’t seen his son in “quite some time.”
ISIS has celebrated the attacks on confirmed Twitter accounts, hinting at a third involved party, but not explicitly claiming credit for the attack.

If a Republican existed who was as scummy as Harry Reid and/or Obama, he/she would passionately speak about the leftist-Islamic-denial-speak as the cause of this tragedy. That the neighbor may have prevented this terrible loss of life had she not feared being called an "Islamophobe" by the thought police. That Obama's refusal to even state the term "Islamic terror" is the very reason that allowed this to occur.

And now the Obama administration will engage in an elaborate verbal gymnastics to avoid referring to this as an act of terrorism, let alone an act of Islamic terrorism.

And, right on cue:
“At this stage we do not yet know why this terrible event occurred,” he said during a nationally televised press briefing. “We don’t know at this point the extent of their plans … or their motivations.”

“It is possible that this is terrorist related but we don't know,” Obama added. “It is also possible that it was workplace related.”

California killer ‘radicalized’ before shooting — report
One of the perpetrators of a mass shooting that killed 14 people in California on Wednesday had been in contact with several FBI-tracked international terrorists before committing the attack, officials said Thursday.

San Bernardino law enforcement officials further told CNN that Syed Rizwan Farook was apparently “radicalized,” although that may not have been his sole motive in deciding to carry out the shooting.

Farook, a 28-year-old county restaurant inspector, and his wife or fiancee, Tashfeen Malik, 27, slaughtered 14 people and seriously wounded more than a dozen others in a precision attack at a social service center for the disabled in San Bernardino before they were gunned down in an SUV a few miles away in a furious shootout with police.

At the White House Thursday, President Barack Obama said after meeting with his national security team that it was “possible this was terrorist-related” but that authorities were unsure. He raised the possibility that it was a workplace dispute or that mixed motives were at play. The FBI has taken over the investigation from local authorities.
