If you’ve been paying attention the past couple of days you may be wondering who this jihadi scum known as Tashfeen Malik is. You’re not alone. Somehow this mystery woman existed 27 years on this earth without ever being photographed. Maybe it’s possible she spent her years in Pakistan covered from head to toe, but in order to get into this country with our supposed “rigorous screening” processes, don’t you need to show a photo ID? Watching any news program in the past day all we see are a silhouette image of this person. Why is that?
Pakistani authorities are working with American officials to uncover details about the mother suspected of carrying out the San Bernardino shooting with her husband, sources told NBC News.
Little is known about 26-year-old Pakistani national Tashfeen Malik, other than she was able to enter the U.S. on a fiancée visa, also known as a K-1 visa, allowing foreigners to travel to the U.S. for a wedding within 90 days.
Malik married 28-year-old Chicago-born husband Syed Rizwan Farook two years ago in Saudi Arabia after the pair met online, according to a family member and a friend. The couple — who had a six-month-old daughter — were both killed in a shootout with police following the rampage in which 14 people were shot dead.
A high-ranking official at the Interpol section of Pakistan’s Interior Ministry told NBC News that “Pakistani authorities are in touch with Homeland Security” in a bid to trace details about Malik.
It’s interesting since just in the past few weeks the left has taunted the overwhelming majority of Americans who do not want Syrian refugees as being afraid of widows and orphans. But we’re supposed to just shrug our shoulders over the fact this woman got into the country without any identification?
A senior member of the Federal Investigation Agency, which is Pakistan’s FBI, said that it would not be “an easy search” for authorities. The source added: “We will need more data to get more data, if only because our systems are not that sophisticated.”
Oh. But let’s bring in waves of people who we can’t verify. Sure, sounds like a plan.
The K-1 visa program has one of the more rigorous security screening processes — presenting far more hurdles than other avenues for foreigners to enter the U.S.
So if it’s so “rigorous,” why do we have no idea who she is? Our suspicion is she may be the brains behind the operation, having lured Farook overseas and into an arranged marriage. She and her possible handlers could well have been the driving force. This theory is certainly plausible, no?
Law enforcement sources told Fox News late Thursday that there was a “very strong” possibility that Malik functioned as Farook’s terror trainer and may have even put together pipe bombs found by authorities at the various crime scenes Wednesday.
Officials said Thursday that Malik underwent and passed a Department of Homeland Security counterterrorism screening as part of the process of getting the K-1 visa. The visa would have been effective for 90 days, after which Malik would have had to apply for green card status through the Department of Homeland Security as the wife of an American. It was not immediately clear whether she did so.
