Officials say killer Farook was radicalized; in touch with FBI-investigated international terrorist

Despite President Obama’s claim that the motive behind the murderous rampage in San Bernardino could be “work related,” recent sources are pointing to Islamic radicalization.

Killer Syed Rizwan Farook traveled to Saudi Arabia in 2013, according to CNN. He was fulfilling a Hajj, an annual trip to Mecca that Muslims are required to take at least once in their lifetime. It was during the Hajj that Farook reportedly met his murder accomplice Tashfeen Malik.

Malik, a Pakistani native, returned to the U.S. with Farook under a “fiancée visa” according to CNN, and eventually married Farook.

According to CNN:

Officials had previously said that neither Farook nor Malik were known to the FBI or on a list of potentially radicalized people. Nor had they had any known interactions with police until Wednesday’s deadly shootout that culminated in their deaths.

Yet Farook himself had communicated by phone and via social media with more than one person being investigated for terrorism, law enforcement officials said. A separate U.S. government official said the 28-year-old has “overseas communications and associations.”

Details are still developing, and Twitter had the latest:

FBI and police officials still maintain there is no clear motive for the shootings:

But even the president had to admit:


Rudy Giuliani: ‘You’re a moron’ if you can’t see San Bernardino shooting was terrorism

Muslim couple’s massacre: Police give shocking details about ‘devout’ shooters in press conference

Suspicious of men around shooter’s house for weeks, guy afraid he’d be called racist so he didn’t report
