No solid evidence Tashfeen Malik exists
On Friday a photo of alleged terrorist Tashfeen Malik surfaced in the media. ABC claims it received the photograph. It did not state how the photo was obtained.
It is impossible to confirm if the photo is in fact an image of Malik. Law enforcement would be able to settle the issue by comparing it to the face of the body retrieved after the shoot-out with police in San Bernardino, that is if the face is recognizable.
So far, no family members have come forward to say the woman in the photo is in fact Malik. This appears to be impossible because, according to the corporate media, nobody ever saw the woman except Syed Rizwan Farook.
From the Daily Mail:
Tashfeen Malik, 27, wore a burka and didn’t speak to male relatives, family members of her husband Syed Farook said, adding that they had never seen her face, according to the family’s attorneys Mohammad Abuershaid and Daniel Chesley.
Relatives not seeing the woman’s face is unusual.
According to Encyclopedia.com: “…women do not wear the burka while they are home with their families.” Some men, however, insist their wives wear a burka or the niqab when in the presence of all males.
The ABC reports mentions nothing about Malik’s family:
Malik, a photograph of whom was obtained by ABC News, was born in Pakistan but moved to Saudi Arabia 25 years ago when she was about four years old. When she was older, she likely moved back and forth between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, according to a source close to the Saudi Arabian government.
In 2007, she returned to Pakistan to study at Bahuddin Zakri University in Multan and stayed until 2012, according to a Pakistani intelligence official. She was said to be a brilliant student and was not known to have religious or political affiliation while there.
Notice the sources of this information—the Saudi Arabian government and Pakistani intelligence. There is absolutely no mention of her mother and father or immediate family members.
ABC News adds that for the town in Pakistan Malik supposedly listed on her visa application does not exist.
Even if ABC had an interest in following up on the story instead of accepting the government script at face value as usual, the fact Malik’s family cannot not be located to verify her identity makes the story suspect.
We are expected to accept this information without question and also accept the official story she was killed along with her supposed husband in San Bernardino. A photo released on Thursday shows a bloody corpse we are told is Farook, although the face is not visible. No photo of a female corpse was released.
Government created terror narratives now routinely depend on people taking storylines for granted. A good example of this is the government claiming it had video evidence of the supposed Boston Marathon bombers placing an explosive device and refusing to show this evidence to the public. Evidence is now withheld under the pretense of “national security” or an explanation for withholding it–as in the case of surveillance video that would prove an aircraft indeed hit the Pentagon on September 11, 2001–is not given. Anomalies and incongruities are often dismissed as “trutherism.”
Considering the long history of government lies and distortions—from the Gulf of Tonkin to Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction and many others—we should not merely accept without question what the government and its corporate media are telling us about the alleged San Bernardino terrorists.
