Authorities rushed to call the stabbing spree at the University of California-Merced non-terror related but new information has cast doubt on that assessment.
Faisal Mohammad, 18, was shot dead by police after stabbing and injuring four people Wednesday and information uncovered in his manifesto showed he created a step-by-step numbered list of what he wanted to do.
“No. 27 was to ‘make sure people are tied down,’ No. 28 was ‘sit down and praise Allah,'” according to what Sheriff Vern Warnke told Fox News. “I remember seeing four or five times, scribbled on the side of the two-page manifesto, where he wrote something like ‘praise Allah.'”
“There was a gruesome statement he made about wanting to cut someone’s head off and kill two people with one bullet, and he planned to shoot the police,” Warnke added.
And despite Warnke’s insistence at the start that the attack was not terror related Merced County News reporter Matthew Gonzales said anonymous law enforcement sources informed him that Mohammad was on a terror watch list and, moreover, that the school was aware of it.
Unfortunately the tragic event at UC Merced illustrates just how our law enforcement leaders have not learned from their past mistakes and may have jeopardized the lives of an entire classroom in doing so. What I am about to tell you has been confirmed by three independent law enforcement officials, all who cannot be named for fear of losing their jobs/pensions. The conversations I have engaged in compel me to believe that we are not being told the truth about the incident at our UC Merced and just who the suspect was.
From the information I have gathered, the suspect was indeed not only on the FBI’s terrorist watch list but he was also on a national watch list and had been one of the topics of discussion at a recent FBI briefing to Merced County law enforcement leaders. According to recently obtained information, about 6 months ago the FBI held a terrorist/extremist briefing with Merced County law enforcement leaders. At this meeting several suspected terrorist with ISIS links were said to be here in Merced County. Names and photos were presented including one of Faisal Mohammad. Based on the FBI’s own analysis and a number of people on the terrorist watch list that are in the area they projected an attack at the UC Merced campus. Though they were not absolutely certain of the attack on the UC they did feel that there was enough information for them to be here if it did.
According to my sources the UC Chancellor was also briefed on the potential threats.
A witness who wishes to remain anonymous stated that they had seen what appeared to be a picture of an ISIS flag which was pulled out of the suspect’s pocket. Two of my law enforcement sources have verified that this is in fact true and that the UC Chancellor along with the FBI and DHS have instructed our local media and our local law enforcement leaders to feed the current narrative that FM was a disgruntled student instead of what he actually was… an extremist Muslim bent on attacking American students in the name of ISIS.
According to Gonzales one of his sources gave this ominous warning before ending their phone call.
“ISIS is here, Matt, and this is no longer a safe community,” she said. “This info needs to be made public to the people of Merced County to be aware of the danger signs.”
