CAIR to Hold Late Night Press Conference on San Bernardino Shooting
he federal government has put a PC lid on the identities of the suspects in Wednesday’s mass shooting attack in San Bernardino, California, but that hasn’t stopped the name of one of the alleged attackers, Syed Farook, from being leaked to the media–initially via police dispatch overheard on scanners. 14 people were killed and 17 people were wounded in the attack.
The Council on American Islamic Relations announced they will be holding a press conference at the CAIR-LA office in Anaheim at 8:30 p.m. PST in conjunction with the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California.
CAIR states in its press release that a relative of one of the suspects named in the media will attend the press conference.
