Latest news is reporting the Muslim terrorists had planned on a second hit. This is the earmark of jihad terror — the first hit is the soft target. Once they have a successful jihad attack under their belt, they move onto a second target — a harder target.
The kinds of devices the jihadis left behind is signature al Qaeda.
Obama say, “workplace violence.”

Who paid for this?

CNN: One of the first officers to respond to Wednesday’s mass shooting in San Bernardino said he had trained for events like this, but the scene was still surreal.
“It was unspeakable, the carnage that we were seeing, the number of people who were injured and, unfortunately, already dead, and the pure panic on the faces of those individuals that were still in need and needing to be safe,” San Bernardino Police Lt. Mike Madden told reporters Thursday, describing the aftermath of the attack by a married couple at a holiday party for health department workers. The names of the victims were released Thursday evening.
Madden and three other officers were operating under the assumption that the shooters were still in the conference center somewhere as they entered the room that held a Christmas tree and festive decorations.
He said he could still smell the gunpowder from when Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, fired semiautomatic rifles into the crowd of about 80 people.
He said he could feel the panic of the survivors of the San Bernardino shooting massacre in the room.
“It was extremely loud,” Madden told reporters, describing the aftermath of Wednesday’s mass shooting there. “The fire alarms were going off. There were people who were obviously injured and obviously in great amounts of pain. And that was evident in the moans and the wails that we were hearing.”
Authorities say they are still not sure of the shooters’ motive, but terrorism likely was part of the killers’ plan.
