The wife pledged allegiance to ISIS

Investigators think that as the San Bernardino, California, attack was happening, female shooter Tashfeen Malik posted a pledge of allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Facebook, three U.S. officials familiar with the investigation told CNN.

Malik’s post was made on an account with a different name, one U.S. official said. The officials did not explain how they knew Malik made the post.

Reminder: at 12:52 PM PST on the day of the attacks I wrote “LA Times says ‘At least three suspected shooters vanished from the building after the gunfire.’ This sounds a lot like Islamic terrorism.”

I am always the expert at knowing what caused a mass shooting before anyone else knows.

  1. My question: Was it the wife that radicalized her husband?

    At the local mosques, Syed Farook was regarded as quiet. He prayed twice a day at the mosque, but never discussed his views.

    No one seemed to really know his wife. When she came to the mosque her face was always completely covered and she never said anything.

  2. NY Times article said husband was US citizen, born in Illinois. Wife was born in Pakistan, lived in Saudi Arabia, returned to Pakistan for college in an area considered “a center of support for extremist jihadist groups”. They met/married in July 2014.

    Sounds to me like the wife radicalized the husband. The husband, with his background, probably would not have done this if he hadn’t met/married who he did.

  3. I’m not sure what they mean by this. Did she scream “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the Islamic State of Iraq & Syria” before she began shooting? Also, I wonder how long this has been known, because for 2 days the Admin has been calling this workplace violence, and the media are still calling it a rampage.

  4. Almost 30% (4 out of 14) of the murder victims of the Jihadism in San Bernadino were immigrants.
