Tashfeen Malik pledged allegiance to the leader of ISIS just before she and her husband carried out the San Bernardino massacre, law enforcement sources told NBC News.
Malik posted a statement of support for Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Facebook "just before the attack," one official familiar with the issue said.
And now investigators are looking into whether the Pakistan-born Malik, who spent most of her childhood in Saudi Arabia, radicalized her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook.
You know if you could direct the sigh of relief from the Right Wing you could blow out a thousand birthday candles.
The FBI is still not saying that this attack was motivated by Islamic terrorism, and seem convinced that it was not part of an international terror plot, but at this point it really doesn't matter.
After all THIS is the kind of terrorism that Americans have been conditioned to accept, and respond to with panic and more calls for government intervention.
The shooters were brown skinned Muslims, with exotic sounding names, and that alone makes them the kind of "other" that allows white America to point the finger of accusation away from themselves.
A point that was not lost on the New York Daily News.
Non-coincidentally the Planned Parenthood shooting has now been relegated to the bottom of the bird cage as this far more digestible terrorist attack soaks up all of the media attention.
Another thing which I am sure is helping the conservatives to breathe a lot easier.
Update: They finally released a photo of the wife, Tashfeen Malik.
