Rigged bombs to kill first responders. . . . and engaged in target practice at area shooting ranges
Another day, more chilling information about the San Bernardino terrorists. The terror duo reportedly left bombs behind that were intended to detonate when first-responders arrived at the scene.
Bombs left at a Southern California social services facility by the gun-wielding radical Muslim couple who killed 14 and wounded 21 were set to go off when first responders arrived, Fox News learned on Monday, in a vicious strategy often seen in the Middle East.
None of the pipe bombs left at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino by Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik in Wednesday’s attack detonated, but the technique has investigators very concerned, sources told Fox News.
“This was meant to kill more, but also scare other future responders to attacks,” a source with inside knowledge of the investigation said. “This was meant to get into the minds of medics and officers who are arriving first on scene.”
Watch the report:
In addition to this, the terrorists are also reported to have been “radicalized for quite some time” and to have spent time at local shooting ranges.
The FBI said Monday that the San Bernardino shooters had been radicalized “for quite some time,” but investigators are still trying to determine whether they had links to foreign terror organizations.
Officials also said Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, had gone to gun ranges in the Los Angeles area in the days before Wednesday’s massacre, which killed 14 people and injured 21.
Federal investigators did not know how the couple had become radicalized, said David Bowdich, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles office.
. . . . On Sunday, the FBI seized items from Marquez’s home after having spent several hours there the day before, according to neighbors.
A law enforcement source said the weapons were purchased at least three years ago and that there is no paperwork of them being transferred to Farook.
The FBI, on Monday, took Marquez, a friend of the male terrorist, into custody.
In addition to the many Middle Eastern men streaming in and out of the terrorist duo’s garage (which neighbors were afraid to call in due to concerns of being labeled a racist or of being accused of profiling), we’re now learning that $28,500 was deposited, by an as yet unidentified source, into the terrorists’ bank account two weeks before the couple slaughtered 14 unarmed innocents, many of whom had only recently thrown the female terrorist a baby shower .
A $28,500 deposit was made to Syed Farook’s bank account on or about Nov. 18, some two weeks before he and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, carried out the San Bernardino massacre, according to reports.
On or about Nov. 20, Farook reportedly converted $10,000 to cash, and withdrew the money at a bank in San Bernardino. Afterwards, in the days before the shooting, there were at least three transfers of $5,000 that appear to be to Farook’s mother.
On “The Kelly File” tonight, counterterrorism expert Dr. Sebastian Gorka said that this is the “smoking gun” that could tie the deadly San Bernardino attack to the broader global jihadi movement.
Was there really any doubt that these terrorists were being funded by someone or by some group? We already know that they had tens of thousands of dollars worth of guns, ammo, bomb-making supplies, body armor, etc. socked away in their apartment and garage, and we know that the male terrorist made less than $40k a year and had a wife and baby to support.
How is the Obama administration responding? Apparently with a bizarre “you’re more useless than I am” contest. Seriously, I’m beginning to suspect that the Obama admin has set up a competition for anyone who can come up with the most ineffective, empty gesture designed to allay Americans’ (well justified) fears without actually tackling the problem of radical Islamic terrorism.
