From Young Cons: Radical Muslim Syed Farook and wife Tashfeen Malik (who was quite possibly more radical) were the terrorists behind the San Bernardino shooting that left 14 dead.
After the couple were killed by police, authorities raided their home and found a bomb making factory of sorts.
Look where they were storing some of the explosives…
What began as a local police response to gunfire in San Bernardino turned into a global investigation into the deadliest terrorist assault in the United States since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, an inquiry being headed by the F.B.I. and stretching from California to Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. It is also the nation’s worst mass shooting in almost three years, since the slaughter at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn…

Inspire’s issue number 14, posted this September, included a step-by-step tutorial offering an update on the familiar pipe-bomb concept. The leading image for the article, entitled “Designing a Timed Hand Grenade,” is shown above. The pages that followed, partial excerpt below, included detailed guidance in how to repurpose a small Christmas tree lamp by converting it to an electrically-powered igniter with a brief delay. (The article immediately followed another entitled “Assassination at a Workplace.”)
That’s pretty low, even for terrorists. Though, I guess they don’t really have a floor, do they?
I wonder what the mainstream media will have to say after learning that the killers were Christophobic?
Will we hear anything about the war on Christmas?
The Obama administration has been pushing for gun control for seven years now, might Christmas tree lights be the next target?
