Former FBI agent and Navy Seal Jonathan Gilliam insisted the San Bernardino shooting was “terrorism, based on the information we have now, that you can clearly see this is a group that is organized and that takes the ideology from fundamental Islamic jihadism.”

Appearing on CNN’s “Legal View” on Thursday, Gilliam argued, “The other thing that desperately needs to be looked at now, did they belong to a mosque, if that mosque is, is being investigated for anything, and if there’s any sources inside that mosque so they can see if radicalization is going on inside there.”

Gilliam, a member of the Joint Terrorism Task Force for two and a half years explained the shooters were “using the tactics they’ve used in the Middle East, now employing women in their attacks.”

“The other thing that desperately needs to be looked at now, did they belong to a mosque, if that mosque is, is being investigated for anything, and if there’s any sources inside that mosque so they can see if radicalization is going on inside there,” Gilliam explained. “This is the movements that we have to start taking now.”

America “was settled, it was not conquered,” Gilliam insisted. “So what we have is a mind-set that does not fit correctly in the, with the mentality of these warriors that are coming over here trying to attack us. We need to adjust that.”

“The rest of the world doesn’t necessarily live like we do, we’ll then be able to set up good tactics for law enforcement and people will realize that they have to come up with their own tactics when something like this happens,” Gilliam said. “And expect law enforcement to come in. Know they’re going to have to put their hands up, know how they’ll be treated. If businesses just cast this stuff aside, they’re going to be the next victim quite possibly.”
