There is even more evidence of blatant, scary, and dangerous incompetence on the part of the federal government when it comes immigration, specifically in this case the K-1 visa program. It was revealed last week that Tashfeen Malik, the Pakastani national wife of Syed Rizwan Farook who together committed jihad in San Bernardino killing 14 people and injuring 21 more at the Inland Regional Center, used a fake address as part of her visa application. Somehow, she was still allowed into the country.
As the investigation deepens into the background of Malik and Farook, investigators are now researching the possibility that Malik was not simply ‘radicalized.’ They believe she may have been an operative that was recruited by a terrorist organization.
FOX News’ Adam Housley reports that authorities believe Malik was possibly radicalized before being granted entry to the country via the K-1 visa program.
On Monday, the FBI said that Mailk and her American husband, Syed Rizwan Farook, had been radicalized “for quite some time.” That raised the prospect that Malik’s anti-American sentiments could have surfaced before U.S. officials evaluated whether she should be allowed to move here.
A law enforcement official told Fox News on Tuesday that officials are looking “very closely” at Mailk’s family overseas as also being radicalized. An official said the “number one” way terrorist organizations are recruiting is through family, with the internet being second.
Malik was one of 519 Pakastanis admitted to the United States last year to marry a U.S. citizen. Although it is claimed that individuals are subject to stringent vetting procedures, Malik not only used a fake address on her application, she also had ties to a radical mosque in Islamabad and the notorious imam who runs it. The mosque is known for its radical jihadi recruitment.
