San Bernardino Shooting Suspect Syed Farook Recently Traveled to Saudi Arabia, met Muslim Wife Online
HMM, HAVE WE JUST WITNESSED THE FIRST ISIS TERROR CELL IN THE UNITED STATES?
As authorities attempt to develop a motive and understand what was the circumstances behind yesterday’s terrible and heinous act that left 14 people dead and 17 others injured who were attending a Holiday party in San Bernardino, California, we are left with facts that make this obvious that this mass shooting was more than just work place violence. The LA Times is reporting that the two suspects, now dead, were both devout Muslims and that 28 year old Syed R. Farook recently traveled to Saudi Arabia.
The scary and pathetic aspect of this incident is that neither Syed Farook or his wife were on any terror list or being tracked by the FBI. Makes one feel really safe, doesn’t it? And we want to let massive amounts of Syrian refugees into the US who we have no idea who they are. The disturbing and troubling thought that comes from this henious act is have we just witnessed a terror sleeper cell in the United States?
They said Farook recently traveled to Saudi Arabia and returned with a new wife he had met online. The couple had a baby and appeared to be “living the American dream,” said Patrick Baccari, a fellow health inspector who shared a cubicle with Farook.
Baccari and Christian Nwadike said Farook, who worked with them for several years, rarely started a conversation. But the tall, thin young man with a full beard was well liked and spent much of his time out in the field.
They and other colleagues said Farook was a devout Muslim, but rarely discussed religion at work.
“He never struck me as a fanatic, he never struck me as suspicious,” said Griselda Reisinger, who worked with Farook before leaving the agency in May.
Reisinger said she heard that the office recently threw a baby shower for Farook and that he had taken paternity leave.
Later Wednesday night, Farhan Khan, a brother-in-law of Farook, said he knew the suspect for much of his life and last saw him a week ago.
“I cannot express how sad I am,” he said at an Islamic Center in Anaheim. “I have no idea why he would do that…. I am in shock that something like this would happen…. My condolences to the people who lost their life.”
