This breaking now from Reuters and reported on CNN.
This should probably come as no surprise to most...but the story is evolving as we speak.
Obviously, if true, this firmly establishes Radical Islamic Terrorism as their motive...and puts to rest the pathetic 'Workplace Violence' argument.
Developing...


One of the two people accused of killing 14 at a holiday party in California posted an online statement pledging allegiance to a leader of the Islamic State militant group, CNN reported on Friday, citing U.S. officials.

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.

Malik, a Pakistani native who had been living in Saudi Arabia when she married Farook, posted an online statement of support for a leader of Islamic State on an account using a name other than her own, CNN said. The attack in San Bernardino appeared to be inspired by - but not directed by - the militant group.

The investigation has been focused on the motivation for the attack with officials including President Barack Obama and San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan saying it may have been motivated by extremist ideology.

The couple left behind a 6-month old daughter. Farook's brother-in-law, Farhan Khan, told NBC News he had begun legal proceedings to adopt the girl and was "very upset and angry" at Farook.

"You left your 6-month-old daughter," Khan said. "In this life some people cannot have kids. God gave you a gift of a daughter. And you left that kid behind ... What did you achieve?"

Twenty-one people were wounded in the attack, the worst gun violence in the nation since the December 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Farook, a U.S. citizen born in Illinois, was the son of Pakistani immigrants, said Hussam Ayloush, head of the Los Angeles area chapter of the Muslim advocacy group Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Christian Nwadike, who worked with Farook for five years, told CBS that his co-worker had been different since he returned from Saudi Arabia.

"I think he married a terrorist," Nwadike said.

Investigators are reviewing the couples' computers and cellphones to see if they had browsed jihadist websites or had contact with militant groups, according to officials in Washington familiar with the investigation.

Police said the couple had two assault-style rifles, two semi-automatic handguns and 1,600 rounds of ammunition in their vehicle, with 12 pipe bombs found in their home.

Well, Obama looks foolish...again.

So basically this ended up being exactly what we thought it was...a terrorist attack driven by ISIS. Thank you for posting this information.

It says this in the OP:

Seems Obama was open to the idea it was radical extremists of some sort. So I fail to see your point.

How is it we keep finding about how they knew these terrorist were terrorist, but they just let em go about life and wait for them to do something?

It makes no sense for them to tell us afterwards that we were watching them.. so why didnt you do something?

Well there you go, your first ISIS attack.

Cue the hysterical reaction, knee jerk reactions, war drum beating, paranoid fear and eagerness to hand over more freedoms to your government

No it should not be ignored but neither should the US give it self over to the typical knee jerk reactions and paranoid fear its known to do. That plays into ISIS hands.

Like more gun control? I agree. we don't need to undermine any of our freedoms. Glad you are looking out of the US from all the way over there.

You mean the agenda is being revealed as we speak. Lemmee guess, bomb Syria, invade Syria, Assad must go.

Press conference in 3,2,1…

how about this then? Obama went out before the electrons in the news articles about his professor buddy's encounter with police had all squeezed onto the web jumping to conclusions sans evidence and saying that the police acted stupidly. He fails to have the same alacrity on terrorism incidents. the charly hebdo attackers were still disgruntled folks and the other victims were not jews either so far as pronouncement from mister "acted stupidly" is concerned.

So this guy made multiple pipe bombs and explosives, endorsed by ISIS, but chose not to use them when doing this ISIS motivated attack? Does that not sound strange to you. This seemed a very personal attack, regardless of what you wish to believe. The person is allowed to have his own issues outside of radicalism.

You believe this to be ISIS related? If so why waste thousands on a unfulfilled objective? Unless you feel they wanted the bombs for display purposes only to strike fear in america once discovered? Clutching at straws to me.....

Just deny our government created ISIS in the first place… that will do.

And what does gun control have to do with anything? You see im form UK so thinking you can pick a silly little fight? Or just plain star baiting?

Well you cant and you wont. Gun control in the USA is I agree pointless. It won’t work there as you already have 300 million guns floating round the country. So no I don’t think there should be gun control over there.

Happy? Or disappointed you cant go off on a gun rant?

I think we are past the point where it's clear that this was terrorism.

Last time I checked. Regular people don't make pipe bombs.
