In another hug fail for Charles Johnson who cast doubt on the FBI’s claims that the San Bernardino attack was related to Jihadi, it turns out he was wrong again. The female shooter; Tashfeen Malik has pledged allegiance to ISIS. Of course to Mr. Toot facts are very flexible things. For the Tootster the most important thing is not the facts but the narrative, and to a left-wing ideologue and Trotskyite wannabe, the enemy and villains always are on the “Right”.
One of two people accused of killing 14 in California apparently pledged allegiance to a leader of Islamic State militant group, two U.S. government sources said on Friday, as intelligence officials in her native Pakistan pressed the investigation overseas.
Tashfeen Malik, 27, and her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, were killed in a shootout with police hours after the Wednesday massacre at the Inland Regional Center social services agency in San Bernardino, about 60 miles (100 km) east of Los Angeles. The attack was the deadliest mass shooting the United States has experienced in three years.
U.S. investigators are evaluating evidence that Malik, a Pakistani native who had been living in Saudi Arabia when she married Farook, had pledged allegiance to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, two U.S. officials told Reuters. They said the finding, if confirmed, could be a “game changer” in the investigation.
Mr. Toot needs to get out of the prediction business.
