Obama’s stance on whether or not the Bakersfield Massacre was a terrorist act cannot be explained as “political correctness.” Now, Obama , his forcing the FBI to take the position that the two killers are not part of a larger organization, but just “lone wolves.” Why?
It may be part of Obama’s political agenda, akin to his rules of engagement which prevents the U.S. from doing much physical damage to ISIS.
Maybe not. Maybe, Obama knows something the American public doesn’t know and is not supposed to know.
The FBI is saying that Farook had no contacts with any terrorist cell in the U.S. They seem to ignore the fact that they, themselves, admitted that he had telephone conversations with people who were “of interest” to the FBI, but discounted their possible importance.
The FBI also lifted the court order on Farook’s apartment and turned it back over to the owner, without dusting the place for any fingerprints —fingerprints that could easily lead to an extended group of jihadists.
The FBI director, James Comey, even went on television to say that Farook and his wife had no terrorist connections – no cell links. Interesting to note, that Obama’s Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, was sitting next to him and watching him closely, looking a bit like a stern schoolmarm.
It appears that by denying that the terrorists had any connections, Obama is trying to protect those connections.
The attacker, Syed Farook, made several trips to Saudi Arabia, ostensibly to meet and marry his wife, attacker Tashfeen Malik. The fact that Farook made three strips to Saudi Arabia, may not seem strange to some. However, if you have ever been through the Saudi visa process, you know that it is virtually impossible to obtain an entry visa to Saudi Arabia. To obtain such a visa, you have to be hired by a company in Saudi Arabia, or have a request put in by for you by someone of influence in the kingdom—and maybe that someone is Farook’s ISIS connection.
The last thing that Obama would want would be to have someone in Saudi Arabia turn out to be Farook’s ISIS contact.
Obama does not want to see that connection made.
