The FBI Director James Comey has admitted that the two San Bernardino terrorists showed signs of radicalization prior to Tashfeen Malik’s acceptance into the United States on a “fiancé” visa. Comey notes that Malik showed signs of radicalization as far back as 2013 but was still admitted into the United States as the FBI missed the warning signs when approving the terrorist’s visa. Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, would go on to kill 14 people and injure 21 by opening fire on San Bernardino County Health Department Christmas party.
The Johnson City Press reports that FBI Director James Comey spoke with the Senate Judiciary Committee about the radicalization of San Bernardino terrorists Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik. Comey admitted that the pair were likely radicalized as far back as 2013 and that the FBI missed warning signs when approving Malik’s fiancé visa. Comey went so far as to say that the terrorist couple had extremist views before ever meeting online. After Farook went to meet Malik in Saudi Arabia, it was well established according to new information that Malik held extremist views before entering the United States.
