San Bernardino terrorist

Reader comment on item: Trump executive order 'a great fumble.'

Submitted by G. Epstein (United States), Feb 14, 2017 at 10:44

Tashfeen Malik is the name of the female terrorist that killed innocent people in San Bernardino. My question to Dr. Pipes: Has the government explained how she managed to get into this country? Would another terrorist be able to get into the U.S.A. today in a way similar to what she accomplished?

Daniel Pipes replies:

1. I don't know of a U.S. government explanation of what went wrong.

2. The authorities clearly are paying more attention to social media now.
