The Pakistani woman who shot dead 14 people in a killing spree with her husband in San Bernardino, Calif. last week had to fill out a detailed visa form asking whether she had any links to terrorism when she entered the United States in 2014.

CNSNews reports that Tashfeen Malik was required to answer such questions as:
  • "Do you seek to engage in terrorist activities while in the United States or have you ever engaged in terrorist activities?"
  • "Are you a member or representative of a terrorist organization?
  • "Have you ever or do you intend to provide financial assistance or other support to terrorists or terrorist organizations?"
Other questions posed to Malik related to espionage, human trafficking, money laundering, prostitution, and other offenses, according to CNSNews.

Malik and her U.S.-born husband, Syed Farook, killed 14 people when they entered a social services center in San Bernardino on December 2 — a massacre officials have deemed a terrorist act and which the Islamic State has claimed credit for.

The visa allowed Malik to remain in the United States for 90 days, during which time she married Farook, which then permitted her to stay.

It has not been revealed how Malik answered the questions on her visa application, but the State Department said Sec. of State John Kerry had ordered an aggressive review of the process.

"We take this very, very seriously. Nothing is more important to Sec. Kerry than the safety and security of the American people," State Department spokesman John Kirby said, according to CNS News.

"And making sure that if there are improvements and changes we need to make in this or any other program in which people are entering this country on a permanent or semi-permanent basis … we're going to do that."
