The mother of one of the San Bernardino terror suspects is being looked at by the FBI for possibly having foreknowledge of the attack that killed 14 people.

Rafia Farook, mother of Syed Rizwan Farook, lived with her terrorist son and his jihadi wife Tashfeen Malik in their California home while they were making pipe bombs and collecting weapons for the attack.

“Obviously, it’s something that we’re looking at very, very closely,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch told NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday.

This revelation came after it was learned that Rafia Farook is a member of a radical group that promotes the creation of a Muslim caliphate.

That information came to light after the FBI inexplicably released the crime scene and the landlord allowed reporters to rummage through the apartment.

MSNBC discovered the group, Islamic Circle of North America, gave Rafia Farook a certificate of achievement.

Probably a good reason to look into her possible involvement.

Another reason is the comments made by Farook’s father, also named Syed Farook, to Italian newspaper La Stampa.

The elder Farook said his son was a “mama’s boy” who became too “conservative and fixated against Israel” under the watch of his mother, with home he shared a deep devotion to islam.

The younger Farook had taken sides with his mother against his father during an argument about Jesus Christ where the younger Farook said his parents’ marriage had to end because his father was an “unbeliever,” he told La Stampa.

Syed Farook also stressed that none of his sons were named Syed and that the proper name of the gunman was simply Rizwan.

He told La Stampa that he couldn’t understand why, with a new daughter and good income, his son would choose to become a jihadist.

“He said he shared the ideology of Al Baghdadi to create an Islamic state, and it was fixed with Israel,” he told the paper.

Didn’t the Obama administration assure Americans that all the jihadists needed were god jobs?

For her part Rafia had accused her ex-husband of being an alcoholic with mental problems who previously hit her, according to divorce filings obtained by the New York Times.

In the papers she claimed her husband screamed at the kids, threw appliances and called her names during violent outbursts.

Syed has denied those accusations.

The couple’s divorce was started in 2006 and finalized this year.
