SAN BERNARDINO, CA – Federal investigators still don’t know when San Bernardino killers Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik became radicalized, and they don’t know if Malik was the honey pot who led her US lover to ISIS.
What they do know is that Malik came from a family of wealthy Pakistani landowners. She moved to Saudi Arabia with her immediate family, then returned to Pakistan to be pharmacist. She received her degree in 2012.
After graduation, she attended a religious school for women only, also in Pakistan, a school that teaches a strict interpretation of Islam.
In this country there are reports that WebBank.com put $28,000 into Syed Farook’s bank account about two weeks before the attack, apparently as a loan.
He then took out $10,000 in cash from a Union Bank branch in San Bernardino.
He also made three, $5,000 dollar transfers that appear to have gone to his mother.
Farook may have used some of that ten grand to reimburse a friend for the two assault rifles.
The FBI also says one of its most-wanted terror fugitives from Minnesota had contact with the killer couple.
He’s Mohamed Abdullah Hassan, also known as Mujahid Miski, who graduated from high school in 2008 and returned to Somalia to join up with al-Shabab.
Investigators say he was linked to the terrorist killed last May during that attack in Garland, Texas.
The feds say Miski surrendered to Somali authorities last month after he had contact with Farook and Malik through social media.
But he’s not to be confused with another Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, also known as John T. Booker, a 20-year-old from Kansas.
Prosecutors say he planned to use a vehicle bomb to kill American soldiers at Fort Riley earlier this year.
