UPDATE: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/12/02/police-id-suspect-in-san-bernardino-massacre-as-syed-farook.html”>The Daily Beast reports: “Syed Farook is one of three suspected gunmen who attacked a center for the disabled, killing 14 and injuring more on Wednesday.”
As all of you are no doubt aware a terrorist attack occurred today at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino California. A confirmed 14 people were murdered. 17 others were injured, a police officer was among them, 10 of the remaining 16 are in critical condition. At least one device was detonated by the bomb squad robot and this evening it was reported that it looked like the device was a bomb. The thugs were armed with “long guns” and dressed in military style gear with masks over their heads. The suspects escaped in an dark SUV. As of this evening it was reported that two of the perpetrators are dead, a man and a woman, another is in custody, and a fourth may have escaped. It was unknown whether that person was involved. See story here.
I’ve waited all afternoon hoping to get more information to post on this story but the authorities are keeping a lid on the investigation. The suspects have not been named. Maybe Jack can offer some insight from his vast experience and contacts.
I did stumble on a site called Vocativ.com that reported the following:
ISIS extremists began celebrating the mass shooting in San Bernardino hours after the massacre, creating the hashtag #America_Burning as police hunted for as many as three shooters, Vocativ discovered. The Islamic State, however, did not take credit for the shootings in the ghoulish postings.
Vocativ deep web analysts discovered the ISIS posts on web forums where the extremists frequently share information.
“Three lions made us proud. They are still alive,” one ISIS adherent tweeted in Arabic after the shootings at Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino. “California streets are full with soldiers with heavy weapons. The Unites States is burning #America_Burning #Takbir”
Another ISIS supporter posted in reference to the shooting on Twitter, “God is the greatest. May god spread fear in the homes of the Crusaders.”
I’ve never seen this site before and I don’t do Twitter so I have no idea if it’s authentic.
The local law enforcement officers and the FBI have done a great job. Americans can be proud. Apparently that military style training and equipment do get put to good use.
As always our thoughts and prayers go out to the people whose lives have been shattered by these horrific events. We live in difficult times.
The fact that the suspects have not been named is almost a guarantee the names are Arabic. The FBI is being extremely cautious, which is uncharacteristic of their usual grand standing before the media. This tells me the FBI is caught up in political correctness and forced by Obama to keep the American public as uninformed as possible while his minions in Washington work on some sort of cover story to lessen the impact of what this horrific shooting really means.
I wonder how Obama will spin this one? I just can’t wait, this ought to be good. Here’s some ideas:
a. Work Place Violence
c. Shooting Caused by George Bush
d. Isolated Event, nothing to see here
e. Anger over GOP’s Stand on Climate Change
And the Leftie media presstitutes are frantically trying to move the Planned Harvesthood clinic (about a mile away) next to the scene of the crime . . . . . .
I refuse to elaborate ““We have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world.
It’s the NRA of course. They must be destroyed. (How do lefties make these connections without going bonkers)
But it seems we the people of this nation don’t agree:
Yeah, that’s the ticket, good guess. It’s the NRA’s fault, (and gun shows) if the killers were not members of the NRA now, I can almost bet they will be before the coroner gets this case. In fact they will probably become life members. And they were never Muslims, they were Christians. They will probably be re-registered as Republican’s too.
Darn. And here I thought it was the Japanese Methodists.
You do realize that in just the last month Obama told us ISIL is contained, American’s have no reason to fear because there is no credible threat by terrorists and furthermore that we’ve been doing everything within our power to fight ISIL in Syria and Iraq. As proof we’re doing all we can, we trained well over 12 Syrian fighters and sent 50 Army guys to over there to help and just today we sent another 15. He also advised the media France doesn’t have mass shootings like America because they have tough gun control laws…uh, he said this while in France and right after the Paris shootings.
Now don’t you feel safer and happier knowing Obama is on the job, looking out for us?
Regarding your update: Sayed Farook, eh? Let’s see, ummmm, he’s probably not Irish-American, he’s sure not Lithuanian, he’s absolutely not Chinese, can I make a wild (racist) guess? I’ll say he is of Middle Eastern ancestry, a 1st or 2nd generation American and a practicing Muslim. And further, I’ll say that he has never done a thing wrong until now and nobody would have guessed he would ever go all jihad on us infidels. The recent purchase of combat clothing and long guns provided absolutely no clue either, FBI, was taken by complete surprise, right? Can’t wait to read the whole story tomorrow or the next day, whenever they have a good cover story ready for us in Washington.
That’s the spirit! Radical right wing Tea Partiers. They did it!
But seriously…this was a party of some sort for Health and Human Services employees (I think) so we could say this wasn’t terrorism, no, this was just a malicious viral infection that got out of hand!
I seriously doubt we’ll see President Obama taking to the airwaves over this event. And for sure we won’t hear him say we ought to be cautious about who we let into this country. Nah, more likely he either won’t comment at all or he’ll say it was just a random act by a husband and wife killing team… it happens all the time, and this points out the need to regulate firearms sold at gun shows or some such BS. Bottom line, no possible connection to Islam here.
What’s scary is how easy it was to get information on the Paris attacks but so difficult here. It’s as though our entire media and police system has a silence order not to let out anything that doesn’t fit a certain political narrative.
Remember the Oregon shooter who asked people if they were Christian before killing them? Whatever happened with that kid? I kept waiting to hear about Islamic connections but it’s like the whole thing got buried. I’m starting to worry when I can get better news about my own country from Europe than here at home.
You make a good point Steve and its one that we’ve also noticed for quite awhile. The US news barely made mention out of Putin’s expose’ of crooks dealing in Syria’s stolen oil. That was a pretty big deal, but it tended to show how Obama’s policies were not being effective, so it looks like the leftwing media covered for him. The media has become way too partisan.
The shooting victims hadn’t even made it to the hospital before the pre-programmed bobblehead wind-up doll in the white house leaped to the podium to cry for more gun control. . Wind him up, push a button and he repeats the same speech over and over and over and over and over . . .
And the fact that all of Taxifornia’s laws regarding guns and ammo didn’t help those 14 victims seems to have gotten lost in the presstitute media’s attempt to place blame.
Kudos to law enforcement for finding and taking care of the killers!
Steve Writes”It’s as though our entire media and police system has a silence order not to let out anything that doesn’t fit a certain political narrative.”
And he is correct in figuring out there is another motive behind the reluctance of reveling honest information concerning the murder of 14 (plus?) Americans on our soil.
Obamas first statement was clearly obvious with his political BS of ” due to the mass number of shootings that has no parallel anywhere else in the world”, read as, America needs to impose more gun control.
Nothing about how a (currently reported) US citizen has effectively flown under the radar of his current watch.
Nothing about the ethnic origin of the shooters, because if they do turn out to be a Islamic jihadist terrorist sleeper cell, it is going to be harder if not impossible to force Americans to disarm
Side bar: given the conditions of this most recent shooting spree of unarmed citizens, the police did a fantastic job of stopping more carnage, Congratulations due to those who responded!
Oh one more little item, Obama is probably thinking about how is this going to affect his Syrian refugee relocation plans to America.
Yes, if Obama juggles all this in a liberal spin and his media allows him to do so, he will get away with trying to cover up the real facts ,and this will become nothing more than a crazed individual and some buddies that were just acting out, all because America is in need of more gun control, per Obama.
So expect a nothing to see here folks, and a immediate switch to more concerning issues to Obama, like climate control. Which would be a good transition, as Obama is great at blowing hot air!
Now begins the Obama backwards moonwalk dance of words: “It is possible this was terrorist-related … it is possible this was workplace-related.”
PS. He forgot to mention a remote controlled IED left behind, well that ups the ante in workplace related craziness huh!……
President Obama Says FBI Taking over San Bernardino Shooting Investigation
President Obama said Thursday he is handing the San Bernardino massacre investigation over to the FBI.
“At this stage we do not yet know why this terrible event occurred,” Obama said. “It is possible this was terrorist-related … it is possible this was workplace-related.”
Obama Delivers Statement on California Mass Shooting
But, the president said, “at this point, this is now a FBI investigation.”
“We are going to get to the bottom of this,” he said. “There may be mixed motives in all of this.”
Obama, who has called for stricter gun control after other mass shootings, did so again on Thursday.
“We need to make sure when individuals decide they want to do harm we make it harder because right now it’s just too easy,” he said”
End of release, I am just not sure which end it is coming from.
Well, it is not that simple and he knows it,and I’ll bet he thinks Americans a stupid enough to believe him. It is just all about what Obama wants that matters, plain and simple, not the Constitutional rights of Americans, or the given the ability to defend one self during times like this, which he has helped create!
Yep that’s Big zero, make it more difficult on legal law bidding gun owners, disarm America while we are under attack and then open our borders providing a safe “shooting gallery” zone of no guns allowed for murderers or ‘Terrorist’ to operate safely in.
Once more NOTHING in his agenda addresses how to prevent terrorist fanatic’s, criminals or mentally afflicted from obtaining guns, or even importing them into U.S. illegally. It is all about making it difficult to own a gun period.
Once more, good ol’ Obama, just smile and try to look like you got the answer, while spewing your PC BS. Yep that will stop it!
Obama isn’t about gun violence, he is about disarming America in total, why?
Maybe he should start making sure our borders can stop people with this agenda from getting in and acting out their ‘work place related’ issues (or so he calls it).
