FBI Knew About One Of The San Bernardino Terrorists In Advance But Allowed Her To Roam Free In America

Tweet from Reuters' Twitter page indicates the FBI had terrorists under surveillance, who were in telephonic communication with, Tashfeen Malik, who is one of the terrorists from the San Bernardino terrorist attack that occurred on December 2, 2015 at a disability center, killing 14 and wounding 20

The FBI has again let a radicalized person communicating with terrorists roam free in America, to terrible results, leading to the deaths of innocent people. Previously, the FBI watched as Nidal Hasan became radicalized in email exchanges with a terrorist cleric. Hasan then murdered innocent people at the Fort Hood military base in Texas. The FBI also had advance information on terrorists Anwar Al Awlaki and Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab (among others), but engaged in negligent conduct that allowed them to commit acts of terrorism.

Press reports on Reuters today reveals, the FBI was aware of one of the shooters in the San Bernardino terrorist attack, prior to the massacre occurring, as having communicated with terrorists. Tashfeen Malik, the 29-year-old wife of fellow terrorist Sayed Farook, was in America on a marriage visa and actively communicating with terrorists in her native Pakistan, over the phone. Malik has been linked to Pakistan's most notorious cleric, Maulana Aziz of the Red Mosque. On the day of the terrorist attack, Malik pledged her allegiance to ISIS on her Facebook page.

Farook met Malik when he spent many months in Pakistan. It is now also believed he received terrorist training while there. Over the past several years, in reading U.S. and international legal indictments by western governments, to write articles for this column on news events, the charging documents in terrorism cases reveal the criminals leaving their home nation in the west, going to the Middle East for many months, then returning to commit acts of jihad. There exists a pattern of behavior in this regard.
