Investigators say it was on an account not under her name but that she controlled it.

The post specifically claimed allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. No word yet on how investigators found this page or knew she was running it.

Officials at this point believe that the couple was self-radicalized.

From CNN:

(CNN) Investigators think that as the San Bernardino, California, attack was happening, female shooter Tashfeen Malik posted a pledge of allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Facebook, three U.S. officials familiar with the investigation told CNN.

Malik’s post was made on an account with a different name, one U.S. official said. The officials did not explain how they knew Malik made the post.

A law enforcement official said it appeared that Wednesday’s attack — which left 14 people dead and 21 wounded before the two attackers, Malik and her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook, were killed in a shootout with police — may have been inspired by ISIS. But none of the officials said that ISIS directed or ordered the attack.
