Chilling New Photo Shows San Bernardino Terrorists Stepping Onto U.S. Soil for First Time Together.

AS MORE details emerged about the San Bernardino killers Tashfeen Malik and Syed Farook, a new photo has appeared that shows murderous couple’s first arrival in to the US.

Five days after a married couple attacked a public health department holiday party, killing 14 and injuring 21, San Bernardino County employees returned to work. “The purpose of terrorism is to make ordinary people afraid to do the ordinary things that make up their lives,” county Supervisor Janice Rutherford said Monday as county offices reopened. “These were dedicated public servants. The soon-to-be terrorists both gave a deadpan look for a photo as they moved through customs at Chicago O’Hare International Airport in July 2014, the image obtained by ABC News showed. The photo shows Malik’s first moments on US soil, as Farook had travelled to Saudi Arabia two weeks earlier to bring her back to America after they met online. The FBI said Friday that it is investigating the deadly shooting as an act of terrorism after it was revealed that Malik allegedly praised the Islamic State in a Facebook post during the attack.

To honor them, to express our gratitude for their unimaginable sacrifice, we have to fight to maintain that ordinary.” The staff of the county’s Environmental Health Department, where one of the shooters worked, will return Dec. 14. Malik and her American-born husband were killed in a shootout with police hours after they opened fire on a gathering of Farook’s colleagues last Wednesday. Following the attack, the county shut down except for essential services, with many of its 20,000 employees staying home, said Felisa Cardona, a county spokeswoman. While most employees went back to work Monday, those at the Environmental Health Services division, where Farook and many of the victims worked, will be off at least one more week, she said.

As her voice wavered Monday, she publicly thanked authorities and medical personnel who responded and requested that the community join together in grief. “Mourn with us the loss of our colleagues, of our friends, of our families and our loved ones,” she said. “I ask that you come together and hold each other strong, because it is this strength that will help us heal. Pakistani police and intelligence agents have searched the house where she lived in the city of Multan, seizing documents, family photo albums and a laptop belonging to Malik’s sister, Shahida, said Shabana Saif, a counter-terrorism official. In an address to the nation Sunday, President Barack Obama said the attack was an “act of terrorism designed to kill innocent people.” While there was no evidence the shooters were directed by a terror network overseas or were part of a broader plot, “the two of them had gone down the dark path of radicalisation,” he said.

Both were hospitalized. “I do want to point out this was a directed event” Ciminelli said at a media briefing. “We have no information or evidence of any kind that this constituted a general threat to the University of Rochester community.” James Ramos, chairman of the Board of Supervisors, said county buildings would see an increase in security guards and that many of them would be armed, but declined to go into details.
