San Bernardino shooters in touch with international terrorists

And why aren’t we calling this terrorism yet?

Check it out:

San Bernardino shooter Syed Rizwan Farook was in touch over the phone and via social media with more than one international terrorism subject who the FBI were already investigating, law enforcement officials said.

It appears that Farook was radicalized, which contributed to his motive, though other things — like workplace grievances — may have also played a role, other law enforcement sources said.

It started as a holiday party — where something prompted Syed Rizwan Farook to storm off angrily.

It ended as a bloodbath with 14 people dead and 17 more wounded — the United States’ deadliest mass shooting since Sandy Hook.

At its center were a married couple, Farook and Tashfeen Malik.

Dressed in black, carrying semi-automatic rifles, authorities say that they unleashed a massacre Wednesday at the party hosted by the San Bernardino County, California, health department.

That was their first brazen act. They then led police on a chase, with Farook firing while Malik drove, that ended with their deaths in a hail of bullets.

But why?
