      National Review: Incoherent babbling from Obama on whether it was terrorism... An Islam of Their Very Own

      After hours of pained, halting, incoherent babbling by public officials from President Obama on down about whether the mass-killing by two heavily armed, obviously well-trained Muslims constituted a terrorist attack, Rudy exploded: You can come to one clear conclusion with the information they have right now. This is an act of terror. The question was motivation. . . . The question here is not, is it an act of terror. We’re beyond that. When you got two assault weapons, two handguns, you’re in body armor, you got a home that’s booby-trapped. You’ve ] been practicing to do this. . . . If you can’t come to a conclusion at this point that this was an act of terror, you should find something else to do for a living besides law enforcement. I mean, you’re a moron. Hard to argue with that.

      • law enforcement analysts on CNN said the tactics used implies a pattern different from most recent mass shootings in the U.S. — a mentally ill person lashing out on a whim. Robert Baer, a former CIA operative, told CNN that the attack “has hallmarks of what we’ve seen in the Middle East” and was conducted with “a skill you don’t see unless people have had preparation and training.
      Multiple features of the attack — the use of long guns, the fatigues and body armor, the swiftness of the operations — caused security analysts quickly to suspect a sophisticated and planned operation more typical of terrorists than random psychopaths.Each was armed with a long gun and a handgun and “loaded with magazines for a gunfight,” she said. Farook was gone for about a month in the spring, and when he returned, word got around Farook had been married, the AP said. The woman he described as a pharmacist joined him in the U.S. shortly afterward, and they soon had a baby. Police described Malik as Farook’s wife or fiancee, AP reported.

      San Bernardino Massacre Attacker Confirmed Muslim Fundamentalist Lone Wolf Who Went To A Muslim Radical Mosque And Was Impossible To Detect by Walid Shoebat on December 3, 2015  Multiple sources from multiple agencies identified one of the three attackers at the San Bernardino Massacre as Syed Farook. But weeding truth from fiction, Syed as it appears is a Muslim fundamentalist who linked to a fundamentalist mosque in Corona California.  terrorist (Syed) Facebook which has been scrubbed and we spotted the mosque attended: Islamic Society of Corona-Norco. The mosque linked from Syed’s Facebook had a peaceful-mission (so they say): calls to ending tax money to Israel, how to raise the generation of Saladin (Jihad) and making aware of the plight of Muslims in Syria. While the titles are obvious, the access is not allowed. jihadists really don’t have to be connected to ISIS. ATF agents found a pipe bomb on one of the suspects. This is in line with the fingerprint of terror.... even the Russian have difficulty thwarting the Lone Wolf terrorist method and ISIS now is heavily promoting this agenda on social media.encouraged to cover up any sign of religious affiliation and are encouraged not pray or become a member in a mosque or keep a low-profile in the mosque..  He plans and attends and performs without dispensing any information. Even the people closest to him, as his wife or his father or his mother are not made aware of his plans. He keeps everything in his mind as part of the plan until such time when the bomb is to explode.Muslim terrorists have the ability to “go dark”. ..
      "The mystery, the planning and the name of the supposed wife spells all the hallmarks of ISIS"
      The Mastermind Of The San Bernardino Massacre Has All The Hallmarks Of An ISIS Terrorist Attack  Walid Shoebat on December 3, 2015 So why can’t anyone seem to locate her origin? It is because there are no records of the two together or are there any records with the name of Tashfeen Malik. ... Farook traveled to Saudi Arabia only six months ago and returned with a wife he supposedly met online. This does not answer the six month old child who was conceived 15 months before and where he was one can locate her origin is most likely that her name is not really “Tashfeen Malik”. ...very unusual for a woman and there is no record of any Tashfeen Malik in the U.S. or even abroad in Arabic.

      Tashfeen Malik (King) is a nom de guerre for a Muslim Jihadist from the annals of Muslim history. As he is known to Muslims “تاشفين ملك الموحدين” Tashfeen Malik Al-Muahideen, in English: Tafhseen King of the Unitarians (Muslims) and the conquerer of the west. ...
      This is a hallmark of ISIS. Another hallmark is that Farook was a devout Muslim, but rarely discussed religion at work. ... e reason they cannot get such a resolution to this is that perhaps they do not understand the code-names used might not belong to the real name of this mysterious  woman. She hardly looks Pakistani and could even be a western convert...three  rudimentary explosive devices packed with black powder and rigged to a remote controlled car trigger inside the SUV ...wearing GoPro cameras when they were killed. The gunman who killed four people at the Jewish Museum in Brussels filmed his attack with a camera mounted on his chest. planning went into it — tactical gear and clothing, pipe bombs … the works.
