FBI: San Bernardino attackers didn’t show public support for jihad on social media
“The two attackers who opened fire in San Bernardino, Calif., earlier this month had not posted publicly on social media sites about supporting jihad, FBI Director James B. Comey said Wednesday.
The husband-and-wife duo were ‘showing signs in their communication of their joint commitment to jihad and to martyrdom’ through private messages, rather than publicly visible postings, Comey said.
‘Those communications are direct, private messages,’ Comey said during a news conference here. ‘So far, in this investigation we have found no evidence of posting on social media by either of them at that period in time and thereafter reflecting their commitment to jihad or to martyrdom. I’ve seen some reporting on that, and that’s a garble.’”
