Unlike a slew of nitwits who assumed facts on the recent shooting in San Bernadino I have been waiting for some facts to surface before speaking up. It turns out that Muslim jihadists were to blame, not crazy white men as many gun control advocates jumped to believe. Additionally these folks were being watched by the FBI? Stellar monitoring skills, clearly.
Apparently the shooting coincided at a place where active shooter scenario drills have been performed monthly for some time. According to the LA Times when a women saw the activity durig the shooting she texted "Drill started." Also, the Washington Times reported the couple behind the shooting recently travelled to Saudi Arabia and were meeting with four others in the US who were watched by counterterrorism officials.
So despite the virtual obliteration of privacy and surveillance on America this attack happened. So what is the point if it results in a complete failure?
More gun control will not solve the issue as the guns were obtained llegally to boot. Two amendments on expanded background checks applying to guns in private sales and online purchases failed to pass in the Senate. The White House is considering an Executive Order to bypass Congressional approval. In the clip below a reporter asked if stricter gun control would have prevented the shooting and White House press secretary Josh Earnest replied, “Of course not.”
Something stinks. Like the visa process the shooter Tashfeen Malik went through giving a fake address and previously declaring loyalty to IS on Facebook. The State Department spokesperson Elizabeth Trudeau replies to a reporter in the video below that she is satisfied with the their work. Perhaps the point of the terrorist watchlist is to watch them perform acts of terror? Then strip Americans of more rights each time.
Great job invading Iraq on false pretenses and facilitating this virulent strain of Al-Qaeda. Without ISIS a flesh eating parasite would not be able to fluorish from dumping all the bodies in the street. Nor would the military industrial complex be able to thrive and the dimishing of security and privacy fo all.
