The FBI announced Friday evening that it has determined the shooting in San Bernardino that killed 14 people and wounded 21 others on Wednesday was an act of terrorism.

Shortly after Tashfeen Malik and her husband Syed Farook opened fire on a holiday party, Malik posted a pledge of allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Facebook. Malik was born in Pakistan and then moved to Saudi Arabia when she was about four years old.

Farook was born in the United States. He met Malik during a trip to Saudi Arabia in 2013. It is currently unknown how the couple became radicalized.

Following are comments by David Bowdich”

“My name is David Bowdich with the FBI.

“I’d like for all of us to remember that the families and loved ones of the victims, as well as the community of San Bernardino, will be dealing with the aftermath of this long after our investigation is over.

“ ‘Heroism’ — First responders.

“Given the facts as we know them today, the Joint Terrorism Task Force is now investigating the December 2 shooting in San Bernardino as an act of terrorism.  We have taken a leadership role at the federal level with the resources of the Joint Terrorism Task Force.

“The FBI; the San Bernardino Police Department; the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department; the ATF, and many other partners, will continue to work collaboratively as we gather facts.”

Muslims want the world to be muslim, always have and always will. Radical muslims will kill to make this happen.

Let’s not generalize, Cal Poly has some excellent courses on religion. Then a real discussion can occur so you can “know your enemy”. You will find out most Muslims are as upset with what happen as any other religious group.

If what you say is true, then Muslims would be fighting against radical Islam, and they are not fighting it, because they understand the radicals.

Ironically, you actually generalize in your statement: “then a real discussion can occur” only after attending a re-education class. Great. Sure glad we have people like this.

Actually a world religion class from a California State Univ doesn’t impress me. I went to Franciscan Univ in Ohio (religious studies) a few yrs back.


Book smart does not make smart sense. Now go to the middle east and chat with their Imams about all the good religious education you think you understand from Cal Poly.


Geesh!


Myself

And these are the nut jobs that live in this country,now your president want to let people into this country from other parts of the world, and our idiot for a governor wants to extend the red carpet for them,hang on to your hats folks this ride is gonna get uglier.

One has to study the history of the crusades to understand that we are indeed at war with Islam. If we choose to forget history, then we are doomed to repeat it.

Earth Island is catholic by default.HRE.drones will make it so.

I am beginning to believe that it was, in fact, the papacy that created islam in the first place (to acquire the Holy Land and deal with the orthodox/non-RomanCatholic Christians)… and now that the “inner circle” of each knows the dirty little secret, it’s a double-blackmail situation. I understand it’s still a bit too early to state this, what with our conditioning and all, but anyone who has studied (honestly) Muhammed and his first wife and teacher/adviser would also likely draw this conclusion.

You know about Cardinal Spellman and Vietnam ? Catholic Buddhist conflict to create a platform to begin a squeeze the Islamic world from the Malaysian tail very dark stuff ,pol pot pinochet

She looks like Joe Peschi on a bad day. If she had kept her nose clean a little longer Obama might have given her a cabinet position. She should have surrendered instead of shooting it out. Obama would have cited her for workplace violence and pay a big fine.


Black_Copter_Pilot

Someone convince Obama, he’s in total denial


r0y

It’s not Obama that we have a problem. It’s in the mindless denizens who vote for him. There is a serious sickness within many, if not most American voters that is not to be underestimated.

Doh!

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
