INTELLIGENCE FIASCO: San Bernardino Jihadis Practiced for Attack a Year in Advance, Farook Discussed an Attack 3 Years Ago
This gives more proof to the lie that Syed Farook was “radicalized” by his wife (generally the property of Muslim men.) They prepared the attack for over a year. And Farook discussed an attack as many as three years ago.
