Lawyer: San Bernardino Suspects Found Handcuffed, Face-Down, in Back of SUV. Photo of Farook Handcuffed

One of the attorneys for the San Bernardino shooting suspects has said that, from the information he has gathered, the couple was found handcuffed “face-down” in the back of a black SUV after police allege they had died in a shootout.   Helicopter news footage shows clearly the body of one of the shooting suspects in San Bernardino being dragged, apparently lifeless, from the driver’s side backseat of an SUV.  A news reporter narrates the scene saying: “I’m very clear they just pulled the suspect out of the vehicle…the suspect out of the back seat of the car…”

Apparently taken aback by what the attorney, David Chesley, is saying, CNN reporter Chris Cuomo presses for clarity, asking:

“Are you saying that you’re not sure if they did this?”

Chesley responds:

“I’m just telling you straight up it just doesn’t make sense.”

On December 4th, a photo surfaced, on, of San Bernardino suspect Sayed Farook laying in a large pool of blood, including beneath his head, in the street with his hands cuffed behind his back.  His wife is shown, in a different photo, apparently dead in the street but not handcuffed.

The Washington Post immediately took Chelsey to task in an op-ed entitled “False flags, true believers and trolls: Understanding conspiracy theories after tragedies.”  The post criticized Chelsey for invoking Sandy Hook in an interview with the UK Daily Mail when he said: “There’s a lot of people that said it happened but hasn’t happened in the way that it was purported to have taken place.”

Of San Bernardino, Chesley told CNN:

“There’s a lot of disconnects and a lot of unknowns that frankly don’t add up or seem implausible.”

Chesley said the wife “was never involved in shooting” and that the woman weighed all of 90 lbs.  Chelsey noted that he believed the couple lacked the “military skills” to pull off the mass shooting, in which 14 people were killed and 21 injured in under four minutes.  The attackers wore masks and initial reports were that police were looking for “three white males dressed in military gear.”

Of the reported shootout, the Detroit News wrote:

“The 28-year-old health department worker was shot dead Wednesday night in a shootout with police, hours after he and his radicalized Muslim wife opened fire at an office party, killing 14 people.”


The photo and allegations surface as critics of the official government narrative voice suspicion at the fact that, once again, a major mass casualty event has been accompanied by a large-scale exercise by multi-agency law enforcement echoing the actual scenario, at the same time .   In all of five of the last largest, most sensational mass casualty events, this has been the case.

The LA Times reported on December 2:

“At first, Dorothy Vong assumed it was a drill — just like all the others at her work.At the Inland Regional Center, where she’s a nurse, the staff works with clients and parents of clients who are sometimes angry. They have active-shooter drills every month or so.“Drill started,” she texted her husband, Mark, around 11 a.m.  She walked to a window nearby and filmed a video as law enforcement sprinted toward the building.“Oh, that is scary,” a voice says calmly in the background.“They’re all geared up!” someone else says. “Rifles and everything!”In the background, someone laughs — they still didn’t know.Then the reality set in.She texted her husband again: “Well it’s real.””

A small number of commenters on the Internet have speculated that it may be police procedure to handcuff even clearly dead bodies.  However, Farook’s wife’s body can be seen not handcuffed in a leaked photo.

San Bernardino and False Flag Attacks

Skeptics of the official narratives of recent mass casualty events contend that parallel drills taking place by law enforcement would allow communications equipment and unfamiliar law enforcement personnel to enter an area, and control various law enforcement functions easily at the site of the event, control evidence, access to the crime scene, and access to witnesses.

When combined with other contradictions and anomalies in the official government narrative, skeptics say, some of these events resonate uncannily with previously planned attempts by parts of the government to influence public policy by attacking US civilians.  One such planned attempt was Operation Northwoods, a US Joint Chiefs of Staff plan to kill American civilians in order to blame it on Cuba and justify an invasion of that island.  One of the goals of the Joint Chiefs was to “develop a communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities, and even in Washington DC.”

The declassified Northwoods memo noted that “Casualty lists in US newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation.”

An appalled President John F. Kennedy firmly rejected the plan when it was presented to him.  Kennedy then demoted the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, US Army General Lyman L. Lemnitzer.  Lemnitzer was later buried with full military honors at Arlingon National Cemetery, despite his part in hatching a plan which would have amounted to high treason.

Skeptics of the origins of recent mass casualty events point out that they seem to serve greater agendas, such as local, state, and federal efforts to narrow the Second Amendment, or to paint Muslims in a bad light, at a time when public support is necessary to continue US and NATO military involvement in the Middle East.  Some fear that, as in Operation Northwoods, rogue elements of the government may be behind the attacks.
