>>>UPDATE: The Daily Beast has amended their story and have now retracted their previous identification. Evidently, the man they identified, subsequently used by WMP for this article, is the suspect's BROTHER with the same name. WMP regrets the confusion. He has now deleted his Facebook...

Here is the real suspect:

According to the Daily Beast:

"Law enforcement officials have identified Syed Farook as one of the suspected shooters who attacked a center for the disabled in San Bernardino, California, according to NBC News. The Daily Beast has learned that the police have just executed a search warrant at a Redlands, California address—an address that belongs to Farook’s family.

Police pursued a car leaving from the Redlands address, Chief Jarrod Baraugan said at a Wednesday evening press conference. A male and female suspect were inside the car, and both of them have been killed. Both of the suspects were armed with assault rifles and handguns, Baraugan said. Police have apprehended a third man, but have not identified his relation to the attacks yet.

An eyewitness at the Inland Regional Center, where gunmen killed 14 and wounded at least 18 more, told police he saw a man leaving a meeting of county employees this morning, looking nervous. Poice officers named Syed Farook as that man in their radio communications. At approximately 11 a.m., at least two people entered the center and opened fire."


"Farook, who also went by his middle name, Raheel, was a business taxes representative for the California State Board of Equalization, according to his LinkedIn profile. He is a 2003 graduate La Sierra High School, and most recently studied finance at California State University Fullerton until 2013.

Records show Farook bought a two bedroom Corona home in March 2014. Farouk’s social media profile shows he is married and has at least one young child. His wife did not return messages left on Wednesday."

WMP has identified his Facebook profile. Here are some pictures:

  1. Thanks, Brandon. Most detailed info so far.

  2. Not finding the Facebook page, is it down already?

  3. With mass shootings happening with amazing regularity, a cynic might worry that these false-flags, hoaxes and psy-ops are moving us in a very dangerous direction. Maybe MK Ultra wasn't terminated after all? It's always the same "groups" at the end of the blame finger.

    1. the story has to make sense. no video in entire KKK town.

  4. And yet, Gov. Snyder wants to create a committee for the sole purpose of saving face for his "pause button" decision and bring more potential threats here into Michigan.

    Maybe he should follow Michael Moore's "example" and invite them to live in his own home since he feels so strongly that these people are not a threat.

    It would show how much he believes what he's trying to shovel if he actually did.
