From the WaPo:

“The reason is that the Americans aren’t doing the job people expect them to do,” he said. “Mosul was lost and the Americans did nothing. Syria was lost and the Americans did nothing. Paris is attacked and the Americans aren’t doing much. So people believe this is a deliberate policy. They can’t believe the American leadership fails to understand the developments in the region, and so the only other explanation is that this is part of a conspiracy.”

On the streets of Baghdad, most Iraqis see no other explanation.

Haven’t read the article yet, but just going by the quote, I agree with the Iraquis.

Yeesh – I was stationed at Norton AFB in San Bernardino many, many years ago (before they closed the base). Just a mile away from the shootings.

The media is making so much of the fact that Farook “left angrily,” but to me that seems like a weak attempt at an alibi. If he was lucky, nobody would have recognized him, and he could have said that his angry exit saved his life.

Fortunately he wasn’t that lucky.
