These two terrorists had planned this from the start and it is terrorism no matter what the government says. The pipe bombs and weapons are one thing but the fact that they prepared for this by scrubbing their hard drives and smashing their phones is a HUGE Deal.
Wallid Phares, a key expert on radical Islam, has said this was an executed operation military style…terror! Twitter accounts also show they were following jihadists. These two terrorists had six men coming and going from their rented house…who are they and where are they now?

Officials are still working to determine what motivated Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik to storm a conference room inside the Inland Regional Center as a holiday party was taking place Wednesday and spray the room with bullets.
Fourteen people were killed and 21 others injured either in the initial attack or as police engaged in a firefight that mortally wounded the heavily armed couple.
Officials involved in the investigation say the couple appeared to have gone to great lengths to conceal their plans — a cell phone recovered from Ms. Malik’s body was newly purchased and had had been used only recently. Two other cell phones that were recovered had been smashed with a hammer and were expected to be sent to the FBI’s forensic lab in Washington for examination.
Authorities also noted that a hard drive and motherboard are missing from a computer found at the Redlands, California, home the couple rented.
