California massacre wife pledged allegiance to ISIS leader, sources say

(NBC) -

Tashfeen Malik pledged allegiance to the leader of ISIS just before she and her husband carried out the San Bernardino massacre, law enforcement sources told NBC News.

Malik posted a statement of support for Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Facebook "just before the attack," one official familiar with the issue said.

And now investigators are looking into whether the Pakistan-born Malik radicalized her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook.

The revelation came just hours after Farook's brother-in-law insisted the slain suspect was not a political person and never gave any indication of what may have motivated him and his wife to attack the city's Inland Regional Center with four guns and explosives.
