San Bernardino terror couple were radicalized before "dating"

First of all, can we stop discussing how the blood-thirsty San Bernardino jihadis dated before they were married? I mean, did the future Mr. and Mrs. Syed Farook participate in candlelight bowling or play miniature golf together?

They evil couple were engaged in much more nefarious deeds.

From AP:
The two San Bernardino shooters were radicalized at least two years ago, well before one of them came to the U.S. on a fiancée visa, FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday. Comey said the couple discussed jihad and martyrdom as early as 2013.

Comey's comments to the Senate Judiciary Committee were the most specific to date on the path toward extremism that Syed Rizwan Farook took with his wife, Tashfeen Malik.

Comey said the two embraced radical Islamic ideology even before they began their online relationship and that Malik held extremist views before she arrived in the U.S. last year.

Though the FBI believes the pair was inspired in part by Islamic State ideology — Malik pledged allegiance to the group's leader in a Facebook post around the time of last week's massacre — agents are still looking for other motivations and sources of radicalization. That search continues because the couple's interest in extremism predates the terror group's emergence as a household name, Comey told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Imagine the angst of this couple: "To radicalize or not to radicalize, that is the question. Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous infidels, or to take up arms and oppose them. ..." Were they radicalized or did they self-radicalize or did she radicalize him or vice versa? Enough with the questions about "radicalization". They were terrorists and did what terrorists do. Is that so hard for people to understand?
