The official apprised PM Nawaz Sharif of Tashfeen Malik’s contacts in Pakistan, sources said.

“Tashfeen was in contact with Islamabad’s Laal Masjid,” US official told, according to sources. “Investigation officials have found Malik’s pictures in which she can be seen with Laal Masjid cleric Maulana Abdul Aziz.”

Tashfeen Malik, 27, and her American husband, Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, were killed in a shootout with police on Wednesday, hours after the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, in which 14 people died.

    Just FYI… the couple pictured in the photo at the top of the story are the brother and sister-in-law of deceased shooter Syed Rizwan Farook. The woman is *not* Tashfeen Malik.

    Farook has a brother also named Syed Farook, but with a different middle name, Raheel. The photo (taken from Raheel’s Facebook page) is of Syed Raheel Farook and his wife; the page is now no longer available.

    Some interesting news reported by ARY News only and not rest of the world media. I saw CNN for 4 hours continuously but could not found even a hint about it. CNN/FBI actually said they did not find any clue they both were linked to any “cell” or organization related to terrorism.
    Some of the things in the story are ridiculous. For example:
    1) Allegiance to ISIS in facebook post, with a different identity? Interesting

    But how FBI knew that “different identity” belonged to Tashfeen Malik? Anyone can make an identity for her and post it.

    2) Both went to death leaving a six month old kid….Very interesting…

    If massacre was very well planned, why not husband d did it at his own and asked wife to disappear a day or two before with her kid???

    3) Seems to be well planned and well kitten, but not by Malik/Syed Rizwan, but those who exploited them by some “threats” to FURTHER CREATE PROBLEMS BY MUSLIMS IN THE US and rest of the world.

    If these investigations are just like and by people who searched for “Weapons of mass destruction in Iraq” and “causes of 9/11”, then I don’t need to further comment on their “credibility”, “impartiality” and “honesty”.

    Attorney for Family in San Bernardino Shooting: Official Story “Implausible” & “Doesn’t Add Up”

    more at

    The question of how Sayed Farook could have mutated into a human monster capable of mass murder is just one of many questions plaguing the family of the man accused of carrying out Tuesday’s terrorist attack in San Bernardino. In an interview with CNN, the family’s attorney describes numerous ways that the official story of that horrible crime “doesn’t add up.”

    “There’s a lot of disconnects, and there’s a lot of unknowns, and a lot of things that quite frankly don’t add up,” insisted attorney David S.
    Chelsey, who represents Farooq’s family when asked by CNN correspondent Chris Cuomo how the family “could explain how he went from someone they knew and loved to someone who could do something so monstrous.”

    Witnesses and investigators have both described a terrorist onslaught carried out with military precision by suspects who were trained and capable. Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, didn’t appear to have the necessary background and skillset, according to Chelsey.

    He expressed particular skepticism that Malik, who was nursing a newborn child, was suitable to carry out a depraved mission of that kind: “She was only about ninety pounds, so it’s unlikely she could even carry a weapon, or wear some type of a vest, or do any of this.”

    The most provocative claim made by Chelsey dealt with the condition of the alleged terrorists when their bodies were found:

    “Where the couple was found, from what I understand, is that they were handcuffed, lying face-down in this truck, shot up.”

    By all accounts, Farook’s family is cooperating fully in the investigation.

    “We sat with the FBI for three hours, and they tried to identify some characteristics or some affiliations that he might have had that have
    led him to act in this way, and they were totally stumped, totally frustrated,” Chelsey reports. “Everyone is clueless.”

    According to CNN, the couple had left damaged cell phones in a trash bin on the scene. Citing unnamed “authorities,” the network said
    that this suggested that the couple “was trying to hide their tracks, and make it impossible for investigators to see what was on their cell
    phones.” Of course, this could have been done more easily by not bringing the incriminating cell phones with them, rather than discarding
    them at the scene of the massacre.

    The hard drive on the couple’s computer is also missing, which has resulted in a subpoena to their Internet Service Provider. A dedicated member of a terror cell would try to destroy electronic information that could incriminate co-conspirators. According to defenders of the NSA’s all-encompassing electronic surveillance, Islamist radicals are being more careful to avoid leaving cyber-breadcrumbs that can be followed; merely removing a hard drive from a desktop computer wouldn’t be enough.

    Another oddity, according to CNN reports, is the composition of the explosives found in the couple’s home: The recipe followed in making the pipe bombs does not match any of the formulas associated with al-Qaeda, ISIS, or other known terrorist groups.

    According to Mustafa Kuko, director of the Islamic Center of Riverside, California, Farook regularly attended worship services until about two years ago.

    “We were all shocked” by the news that Farook had allegedly murdered 14 people, Kuko told the Los Angeles Times.
    That shock was compounded by news that one of the victims in the attack, a social worker who survived multiple gunshot wounds, also
    attends the mosque.

    “It’s very likely that they knew each other, and Farook must have known she was there,” Kuko points out. “It just doesn’t make any sense. Why would he do this?”

    The answers to those insistent questions may cause Farook’s family and friends to revise their assessment of a man they considered to be peaceful, well-adjusted, and sincerely friendly. Those answers might also require significant revisions in the emerging official narrative of the atrocity in San Bernardino.
