Since news today that San Bernardino shooter Tashfeen Malik is said to have posted a pledge of allegiance to ISIS around the time she and her husband killed 14 people Wednesday, the world’s attention has shifted to the mysterious mother-turned-murderer.
Malik, a photograph of whom was obtained by ABC News, was born in Pakistan but moved to Saudi Arabia 25 years ago when she was about four years old. When she was older, she likely moved back and forth between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, according to a source close to the Saudi Arabian government.
In 2007, she returned to Pakistan to study at Bahuddin Zakri University in Multan and stayed until 2012, according to a Pakistani intelligence official. She was said to be a brilliant student and was not known to have religious or political affiliation while there.
Malik encountered Syed Rizwan Farook, an American of Pakistani origin born in Chicago, on a dating website, an attorney for Farook’s family told reporters today. U.S. officials said Farook could have met Malik or her family in Saudi Arabia during a trip there in the fall of 2013. After another trip in July 2014, Farook returned to the U.S. with Malik in tow. The couple was married the next month.
Malik came to the U.S. on what is known as a “fiancé” visa, which allows an American fiancé to petition for his or her partner’s temporary entry before marriage. For the visa application, the address she listed in her Pakistani hometown, ABC News discovered today, does not exist. Malik received a her Green Card this summer, U.S. officials said.
The following is totally unsourced, but highly interesting, but worth only to be placed behind the ear in mulling over the wider context of this administration’s outrageous behaviour vis-a-vis properly/correctly naming Islam itself as a terror threat doctrine. It will remain to be seen if this is verified in the near future, so take with a grain of salt, but it’s highly interesting nonetheless.
BREAKING: Obama/Jarrett Warn FBI Director Over Anti-Muslim Tone (UPDATED)
If true, this is a scenario that appears to pit the Obama White House against FBI Director James Comey over what reports suggest is an increasingly divisive conflict between Mr. Obama and Mrs. Jarrett and federal law enforcement officials regarding feared pending ISIS terror threats inside of the United States.
(ABOVE: Barack Obama is said to be “furious” with his FBI Director, James Comey.)
UPDATE: Rumors now circulating that Barack Obama recently stood over Director Comey, who was seated at the time, and inquired whose side the FBI Director was on. Apparently the two men have been at odds for months, including Comey’s repeated repudiation of the Black Lives Matter movement and its highly negative impact upon law enforcement morale.
UPDATE #2: Watch the video below and see how tense FBI Director Comey appears at the outset. Then watch at the end of the video (app 6:00 mark) as the live feed is abruptly cut off when it gets to the question and answer portion. Both Lynch and Comey give their Jarrett -approved statements on the San Bernardino terror attack, and then the transmission is terminated thus ensuring no Americans can hear Mr. Comey’s non-Jarrett approved commentary.
NOTE: The original PBS News video that was posted earlier today was then subsequently EDITED in which the abrupt “cutting off” of the Comey question and answer request was removed. Other media outlets such as C-SPAN made the very same edit likely at the request of the Obama White House.
Here then is a still-unedited version. You can fast-forward to the six-minute mark and watch as Director Comey asks for questions a voice from the back interjects and the video feed is abruptly terminated. The video then repeats itself and shows the edited version.
