President Barack Obama says that it’s possible yesterday’s attack in California, where two people killed 14 and injured 17 others, was terrorist related. But he’s also holding out the possibility it was workplace violence.
“It is possible that this is terrorist-related, but we don’t know; it is also possible this was workplace-related,” Obama said, adding, “we don’t know why they did it.”
Obama added that it was important to understand the “nature of the workplace relationship” between the individuals to fully understand the attacks, raising the possibility that it could be “mixed motives” for the attacks.
The attacks were carried out at a facility for developmentally disabled adults by Syed Rezwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, a husband-and-wife team in California who were both heavily armed.
Obama made his remarks in the Oval Office this morning after a meeting with his national security team.
