Who Put $28,500 In Syed Farook’s Bank Account Last Month?

Was it #NotAllMuslims again?

Catherine Herridge, Fox News:

A $28,500 deposit was made to Syed Farook’s bank account from WebBank.com on or about Nov.18, some two weeks before he and his wife Tashfeen Malik carried out the San Bernardino massacre, a source close to the investigation told Fox News Monday…

The deposit came via Utah-based WebBank.com, which describes itself as “a leading provider of national consumer and commercial private-label and bank card financing programs” on a nationwide basis. On or about Nov.20, Fox News is told Farook converted $10,000 to cash, and withdrew the money at a Union Bank branch in San Bernardino. Afterwards, in the days before the shooting, there were at least three transfers of $5,000 that appear to be to Farook’s mother.

The loan and large cash withdrawal were described to Fox News by the source as “significant evidence of pre-meditation,” and further undercut the premise that an argument at the Christmas party on Dec. 2 led to the shooting.

Weird, right? Of course, we still don’t know Farook’s motive and we never will. It’s just one of those things. If you think you know why he did it, you’re a racist. You don’t want people to call you a racist, do you?

Sure, the FBI says lovebirds Syed and Tashfeen were radicalized, but that has nothing to do with one religion or another. It’s not like they belonged to the NRA or the Tea Party.

Etc.

Now that Stupid Donald Trump has managed to make yet another issue all about him, our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters feel like they’re off the hook. They don’t have to pretend to care about who Syed Farook was, or who helped him, or when it’s going to happen again. They can just bash Trump, which they enjoy almost as much as he does.

Radical Muslims slaughter innocent people on American soil, and now it’s just another episode of The Apprentice. Trump and these press vultures deserve each other.
