• White House STILL Refuses to Call California Attack Terrorism

    The Obama administration refuses to call the San Bernardino shooting a ‘terrorist’ attack, despite law enforcement officials discovering a dozen pipe bombs at the Muslim shooters’ California home.

    “What it looks like is people who were obviously intent on carrying out a terrible act of violence,” Press Secretary Josh Earnest said at the White House Friday.

    Reporters asked Earnest about the details of the shooters pledging allegiance to ISIS.

    “I don’t want to talk about the situation because there’s still an ongoing investigation to determine exactly what transpired and what motivated those individuals to take the terrible indefensible violent action that they took,” he said.

    Earnest directed reporters to inquire with the FBI to get a “better sense of what their eventual plan would have been” and claimed it was “far too early” to discuss whether or not the attack was proof of a massive intelligence failure.

    “There is an all of government approach that is taken to protecting the homeland, to protect the American people, and to protecting our interests both in this country and around the world,” he said.

    The Obama administration’s immediate reaction to  shooting in San Bernardino was to insist that “common sense” gun laws will deter jihadists who are planning attacks.

    The FBI announced shortly after the White House press briefing that it is investigating the attack as an act of terrorism.
