We reported dive crews were searching a lake in San Bernardino for evidence related to the terror attack that left 14 Americans dead.

It appears that investigators may have located some:

Divers recovered items from a lake in San Bernardino, Calif., where a couple who killed 14 at a nearby regional center Dec. 2 possibly dumped evidence on the day of their shooting spree, according to various media accounts,

…Divers began searching the lake Thursday, and some items were recovered before the search concluded Saturday, but the FBI did not reveal whether anything pulled from the lake was related to the investigation of the shootings.

Meanwhile, there seems to be a quandary about what to do with the corpse of terror bride, Tashfeen Malik. For some reason, the husband’s family is in no rush to claim it and ensure it receives prompt burial according to Islamic custom:

The body of San Bernardino terrorist Tashfeen Malik may be cremated – a practice strictly forbidden by Islamic law – because nobody wants to claim it, it has been reported.

Malik’s body and that of her husband Syed Farook is still being held at the San Bernardino County morgue more than a week after the pair were shot dead by police.

But while Farook’s remains are expected to be released to his immediate relatives in California soon, nobody has stepped forward to take care of Malik’s body, Fox News reports.

The most likely sequence of events will be a low-key burial overseen by government officials in an unmarked grave in a cemetery run by an Islamic group. This was the case with Tamerlan Tsarnaev, after Cambridge, Massachusetts residents made it clear they didn’t want the remains of one of the Boston bombers anywhere within city limits.

The saga of Malik’s body should give potential jihadi brides some pause before embarking on a career in terror. There is increasing concern that newly wedded Islamist women plan American honeymoons ending with suicide bombings.

Meanwhile, three more of Malik’s victims were buried this weekend. The families of Tin Nguyen, Isaac Amanios, and Shannon Johnson buried their loved ones Saturday.

It turns out Amanios had come to this country after fleeing from the violence of his native land, Eritrea:

Amanios was a family man who tutored his three children with their schoolwork, relatives said. All are currently in college, said his nephew, Zeke Gebrekidane.

“He was looking forward to his kids graduating from college,” he said. “He came here so his kids could have a better life. It’s not just his family affected, but the entire community is affected by this tragedy.”

The best memorial our government could give our dead, killed during the War on Terror, is to stop hiding “background checks” and “screenings”, which failed to detect Malik’s vile, militant jihadi sentiments during her life.

San Bernardino shooter Tashfeen Malik, 29, underwent three background checks and had her K-1 fiancee visa approved even though she openly posted about committing violent jihad on social media.

…Malik was screened by Homeland Security officials then the State Department before she entered the US and then faced a third screening after applying for a green card, the NY Times reported.

I shudder to think that Homeland Security has a 95% failure rate at detecting jihadi brides, which is the rate of TSA screening failures.

No matter the final disposition of her corpse, this must be the last jihadi bride who comes to America. Our government now needs to put the security climate at the top of its priority list.
