Fox News has repeated an LA Times report that one of the shooters in San Bernardino is Syed Farook. It is not known if he was the male killed in the shootout with police this afternoon.
The name previously spreading throughout the internet was Farooq Saeed.
At this time, Fox News is reporting that Farook's father has made a public statement describing his son as a devout Muslim. Fox News also reports that the Greater Los Angeles chapter of CAIR will be holding a press conference in Anaheim this evening with a member of Farook's family.
I assume that CAIR's SoCal director, Hussam Ayloush, is running around like a chicken with his head cut off. He, no doubt, will be front and center at this conference.
There are reports that one of the shooters may have been an employee with a health company that was having a party at the San Benardino location that was attacked. It is further reported that one person, possibly Farook, was involved in an altercation, left, and came back to carry out the attack.
All that remains to be clarified. Even if true, how do you explain the dress of the attackers, the weapons, the obvious pre-planning?
Bottom line, and I feel very comfortable now going out on a limb here; this was not workplace violence. This was jihad.
