A friend of the San Bernardino terrorists -- who killed 14 people on December 2 -- told police one of the killers, Syed Farook, planned a terrorist attack for years, the Clarion Project website reports today (December 20, 2015).
Enrique Marquez, 24, is alleged to have bought the rifle used to carry out the attack. According to an FBI affidavit, Marquez and Farook had been planning a terrorist attack four years ago.
Marquez was arrested and charged with conspiracy to carry out two attacks in 2012. Farook is said to have introduced Marquez to Islam and later to radical Islamist ideology.
The pair took a step back from plotting a terrorist attack after a terrorism investigation in November 2012 resulted in four local men being arrested.
