  • FBI Unable To Crack San Bernardino Killers' Cell Phone

    CBS News ^ | Feb 9, 2016 | Staff
    FBI Director James Comey said Tuesday one of the phones used by the killers in the San Bernardino, California, attacks remains inaccessible to investigators more than two months after 14 people were fatally shot. Testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey cited the case as an example of how encryption is affecting counterterrorism efforts. But he said the dilemma of bad guys "going dark" is mostly affecting state and local law enforcement officials who are trying to solve murder, drug and car accident cases. Companies are increasingly making devices such as cellphones with encryption that allows only the people communicating...

    A former Mexican president had some tough words when asked about GOP candidate Donald Trump's much-touted plan to build a border wall that he says will be paid for by Mexico. "We are not going to pay any single cent for such a stupid wall! And it's going to be completely useless," said former Mexican president Felipe Calderón when asked about this at the AmCham Egypt for Business Conference on Sunday. Calderón told CNBC's Hadley Gamble his country will not be funding the construction of the wall, also adding that while Trump blames Mexican migration for the majority of illegal...

    On the Friday broadcast of his HBO show Real Time, Bill Maher told liberals see the world the way they want it rather than the way it is when it comes to the threat of Islam and Islamic terror. Maher, a religious critic, told his fellow liberals he wishes they would have the same "intolerance" for Muslim-related terror around the world that they do for Christians and Christian fundamentalists at home. Maher brought up the decision by the Italians to cover up nude statues during a state visit by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. "This is the horribleness of what's going...

    Israel's prime minister has denounced a call by Sweden's foreign minister to investigate whether recent killings of Palestinians were "extrajudicial". Benjamin Netanyahu said Margot Wallstrom's remarks were "outrageous... immoral and... stupid". Ms Wallstrom had called for "thorough and credible investigations" into the deaths. Some 155 Palestinians - mostly attackers, Israel says - have been killed in unrest since October. In that time, 26 Israelis have been killed in stabbing, shooting or car-ramming attacks by Palestinians or Israeli-Arabs. The attackers who have been killed have either been shot dead by their victims or security forces. Others have been arrested. On Tuesday,...

    Dalia Mogahed, formerly Barack Obama’s adviser on Muslim affairs, appeared on Trevor Noah’s sinking-like-a-stone Daily Show last week, to explain to a worshipful Noah and an adoring audience that the hijab represented nothing more or less than the “privatization of women’s sexuality” – and who on earth but the most benighted lout could possibly be against that? The burning outrage of Mogahed’s words was probably missed by most Daily Show viewers. It should not be missed by FrontPage readers.

    He’s a hypocrite. No, this is not name-calling. It’s not hateful rhetoric. It’s just the plain truth. Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) has introduced H. Res. 569, a foolish piece of legislation condemning “hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United States.” The legislation already has 105 co-sponsors, all Democrats, with more supporters jumping in every day. Rep. Beyer, who was a car dealer before entering Congress in 2015, submitted the resolution on Dec. 17, just over two weeks after a Muslim couple – in the name of Islam – wounded 22 people and killed 14 innocent souls in San Bernardino, Calif....

    The State Department's April 2015 "Country Report on Terrorism" no doubt came as sweet music to the ears of Special Interest Alien (SIA) smugglers. These are the smugglers of migrants from the spawning grounds of Islamic terrorism that, as I have been arguing, American homeland security leaders must strategically target with much greater aplomb to reduce the prospect of a Paris-like border infiltration attack here.The April 2015 report noted that Latin American nations had only made "modest improvements to their counterterrorism capabilities and their border security" from the previous year(s). It noted corruption, weak government institutions, weak or non-existent legislation,...

    A former neighbor who prosecutors say supplied assault rifles to the couple who massacred 14 people at a county office building in San Bernardino, California, was indicted on Wednesday on charges of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists. Enrique Marquez, 24, was charged with conspiring with San Bernardino gunman Syed Rizwan Farook in 2011 and 2012 to support a terrorist attack that was never carried out. Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, stormed into a holiday party attended by his co-workers at a San Bernardino County social services agency and opened fire on Dec. 2, killing 14 people...

    The police and press did an impressive job of sleuthing into the lives and motives of Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, the married couple who massacred 14 people on December 2, in San Bernardino, California. We know about their families, their studies and employment histories, their travels, their marriage, their statements, and their preparations for the assault. Most importantly, the cascade of background work means we know that the pair had jihadi intentions, meaning, they attacked in their role as pious Muslims spreading the message, law, and sovereignty of Islam. We are all better off for knowing these facts,...

Rana Elmir wrote that she's "consistently and aggressively asked" to condemn Islamic terrorism, and is tired of having her religious views linked to atrocities like the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and in Paris and San Bernardino this year. "I emphatically refuse," she wrote in an opinion piece in The Washington Post. The op-ed was titled: "Stop asking me to condemn terrorists just because I'm Muslim."

    The endorsement by South Carolina Republican Representative Trey Gowdy of Florida Senator Marco Rubio in the GOP presidential nomination contest offers a contrast in opposing positions. Gowdy has espoused positions that have been repudiated by Rubio and it will be interesting to see how the two men reconcile their differences as they campaign together. In Iowa, the Rubio campaign has been attacking his rival for the nomination, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, as weak on national security. This attack is based on Cruz’s support for the USA Freedom Act which curtailed the ability of the NSA to collect phone call meta...

    Ten days after the Paris terrorist attacks, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie trumpeted his connections to Americans who lost loved ones on Sept. 11, 2001. "For me, it is a daily occurrence to look into the eyes of the people who lost their husbands and wives, their fathers and mothers, their sisters and brothers, their sons and daughters," he told the Council on Foreign Relations in November. "The threat is not minimal." A little more than a week later, after the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, Calif., those words seemed prophetic -- and the Republican presidential hopeful shifted emphasis from...

    There is a major difference between a spree murder and jihad. Especially when Muslims commit it at a Christmas party. Lumping spree murder and jihad together is a journalistic mistake, misleads the public, and assaults our precious Bill of Rights. The gun issues involved are different. The religious murders (not "terrorism") committed in San Bernardino and all over America at this point are all part of the global jihad being waged by Muslims against us. Not all Muslims, just Muslims waging jihad. Plus their vocal and silent supporters. Calling these independently staged military attacks "terrorism," even though they are terrible...

    In the immediate aftermath of the San Bernardino terrorist attack, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) sought to support and assist the families of the terrorist Syed Farook – before the FBI had even uttered the word "terrorism". As my colleague Joel Pollak writes at Breitbart California, the organisation, which claims it is tasked with improving relations between America and its Muslim communities took the pre-emptive step of representing Mr. Farook's family, in what Pollak describes as a terrorist family's "death benefit". CAIR's assistance and public representation of Syed Farook's family, in my opinion, closely resembles the Palestinian Authority's (PA)...

    One of the biggest mistakes in dealing with radical Islamic terrorism is to blame only Islamic State (ISIS) when it is, in fact, part of a much broader movement and more than one organization. Regardless of the specific motives behind the timing of the killing spree in San Bernardino that killed 14 people, this horrific massacre was a clear-cut act of radical Islamic terror. Not surprising, at the UN climate summit in Paris, a baffled Barack Obama said that the San Bernardino massacre motive is a mystery - then uses the tragedy to push for gun control and declare "climate...

Now populists are also feeding on the fear that governments cannot—or will not—keep their citizens safe.

    The FBI has taken heat for failing to immediately classify the San Bernardino shootings as terrorism, but a new report shows that FBI reluctance could have been due to external pressure from the White House. A source told Jack Murphy of SOFREP that the FBI instantly believed the shooting, which left 14 dead, to be a clear act of terrorism. The White House, however, didn't feel the same way and quickly moved in to squash the terror classification. This source added that as soon as the shooting took place, Obama convened a meeting with the National Security Council and the...

    (snip)Enrique Marquez, a former neighbor of Farook, told investigators he and his friend previously built pipe bombs, law enforcement officials said. Marquez said he had nothing to do with devices found at the home of Farook and Malik, or the ones that apparently failed to go off at the site of the shooting, the officials said. Marquez, who has spent several days being voluntarily interviewed by the FBI, portrayed the two men as hobbyists experimenting with building the devices, the officials told CNN. He also boasted, one official said, that if he had made the bombs they would have gone...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Megyn Kelly had a blockbuster exclusive last night on the Fox News Channel. The former customs and border agent, Philip Haney, claims that the State Department and Homeland Security Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties closed down an investigation. He was looking into a group named Tablighi Jamaat. Philip Haney says the investigation was shut down because the Regime "did not want to profile Islamic groups." Well, who the hell are we profiling if we're not profiling Islamic groups at Homeland Security and at immigration, for crying out loud? Philip Haney says the Feds "the feds...

    More than a week after Syed Farook and his jihadist wife slaughtered 14 people and injured 21 at a Christmas party in San Bernardino, lingering questions about how the incident occurred and the way it is being handled by the FBI continue to fester just below the surface. As WND reported, several witnesses said they saw a third shooter dressed in black carrying an assault rifle. But there are other oddities peculiar to this case.

    RIVERSIDE, Calif. - The regulars did not take it seriously when Enrique Marquez mused about terrorism at Morgan's Tavern, a dank dive bar where the bespectacled 24-year-old hauled ice, cleaned bathrooms and checked ID's at the door. After a few drinks, he would just start talking - about his money woes, trying to lose weight, wanting to join the Navy. News reports about terror were just fodder for more bar talk. "He would say stuff like: 'There's so much going on. There's so many sleeper cells, so many people just waiting. When it happens, it's going to be big. Watch,'...

    Veteran conservative voice Patrick Buchanan issued a stern warning to the Republican Party on Thursday: Throw your weight behind GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump now — or prepare to lose next year’s election to Hillary Clinton. Buchanan, an adviser to Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, told Newsmax TV the freak-out over Trump's proposal to temporarily bar all Muslims from entering the U.S. is misguided and will make the billionaire developer turn independent as his supporters flee the GOP. And it will open the door to Clinton, the former secretary of state and Democratic presidential frontrunner, to waltz...

It looked like their skin color was white. Another eyewitness, Juan Hernandez, saw the same thing: three men. He said the shooters were “three white men in military fatigues” who “took off” in a “black Impala or SUV.” CBS Evening News titled...

    A former Department of Homeland Security agent says that an investigation he was conducting into a fundamentalist Islamic group operating in the U.S. may have helped stop San Bernardino jihadi Syed Farook had the government not shut down his probe. During an interview with Fox News' Megyn Kelly on Thursday, Philip Haney said that in 2012 as an agent with U.S. Customs and Border Protection's National Targeting Center, he opened an investigation into a Sunni Islamic group called, Tablighi Jamaat, a subset of the fundamentalist Deobandi movement. But Haney said that just a year into the investigation it was shut...

    As the plot thickens in the San Bernardino massacre, the FBI is trying to decipher several issues from abuse of the marriage and immigration system and whether these terrorists had Jihadi brides. Also who are these Russian girls involved in the marriage scheme. Also the FBI believes Farook had ties to a group of jihadists in California who were arrested in 2012 (which caused a previous attack to be thwarted that Farook was planning) for attempted to travel to Afghanistan to join al Qaeda. Then we have the possible main ringleader, second man, Mohamed Abdullahi Hassan (aka Miski, Malik John,...
