Malik Sent Facebook Messages About Jihad

Malik Sent Facebook Messages About JihadTashfeen Malik, one of the two attackers who fatally shot and killed 14 people in San Bernardino, California, this month, sent at least two private messages on Facebook to a group of Pakistani friends in 2012 and 2014 revealing her support for Islamic jihad, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday. Malik reportedly “expressed her desire” in one of the posts, written in Urdu, to become a jihadi, two top federal law-enforcement officials said. The posts were recovered by FBI agents investigating whether Malik and her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook, had any direct connections to foreign terrorist networks before they opened fire on the Inland Regional Center on Dec. 2. The revelations suggest intelligence agencies missed red flags on social media that Malik was a potential threat before she entered the country on a K-1 fiancée visa in July 2014.
