>> reporter: tonight, investigators searching for clues in another house not too far from here. tonight, the investigation turning to this home, and enrique marquez, his onetime friend and neighbor, suspected of providing the guns used in the massacre. the fbi raiding the home last night. >> did he provide the guns to farook? >> reporter: authorities say there's no information that marquez played any role in the shooting. leaving 14 dead. he has reportedly checked himself into a mental health facility. >> they kept to themselves. they're very neighborly. all their children, they're good kids. >> reporter: this neighbor said she noticed a change in farook about a year ago. what's the biggest difference? >> his dress, beard, more withdrawn, started wearing his
white thing, the long, draped outfit, whatever it is. and so he did start changing. >> reporter: but nobody said they noticed any warning signs of the terror to come. >> i never saw them talk about guns or say anything suspicious. >> reporter: tonight, this new photo of farook and his family. his brother and sister-in-law are angry for not knowing they were living a double life. do you feel like you didn't know your brother? >> no, at this time, i feel like he had a double life. life, very good at concealing everything from all of us. >> reporter: his father saying his son was fascinated with isis, and hated israel. and that he shared ideology with the isis leader. and his brother and sister saying they're in complete shock. they went to his house, never saw anything suspicious.
and tonight say they're grieving for all of the people that died right here behind me. tom? >> cecilia, thank you. and tonight, the fbi is on the hunt for any links the attackers may have had to jihadi recruiters or known terror groups. however they were inspired, this plot appears to be the kind of home-ground terror the fbi has long feared. here's pierre thomas. >> reporter: tonight, hundreds of fbi agents here at home and across the globe are in a race against time to uncover exactly what and who was behind the massacre in san bernardino. fbi officials are searching computers and cell phones associated with the killer couple in a desperate attempt to see if they were radicalized or directed by isis or other terrorists. the female killer allegedly swore allegiance to the leader of isis on facebook on the day of the assault. >> the most important part of this investigation right now is, are they lone players, the two of them, or are they connected
to other people? >> reporter: but if this couple was truly inspired by isis, it marks a dangerous evolution in the u.s. terror threat. the fbi director has been warning for months about an unprecedented social media campaign by isis encouraging potentially thousands of followers in the u.s. to attack. >> it's as if there is a devil sitting on their shoulder all day saying, "kill, kill, kill!" >> reporter: the social media marketing polished, not just violent, appealing to the young. there's evidence the marketing campaign is working. in the last two years alone, the fbi has identified or arrested nearly 90 suspected isis supporters from inside the united states. average age, only 25. at least 20 teenagers. 13 females. and 15 of those arrested accused of trying to launch murderous plots here at home. the nation narrowly averted the first isis-inspired massacre in may when two men armed with assault rifles tried to attack a texas cartoon conference about the prophet mohammed. and now this young suburban
couple who left behind a 6-month-old baby and went on a vicious killing spree. law enforcement is struggling to cope with the new isis social media threat. which has found a young, captive audience, that can strike without warning. tom? tom? and president obama will speak to the nation tonight, the topic terror, specifically home-grown terror. coming after he and his national security team held a weekend meeting on the san bernardino attacks. jonathan karl joins us now. why is the president speaking tonight? >> the president knows people are on edge after the attack in san bernardino. and the president wants to reassure people he's taking the threat seriously. he's going to give an update on the san bernardino attack. making it clear this was an act of isis-inspired terrorism on
american soil. he will look at specifically what the government will do to deal with home-grown terrorism. and he will talk about actions he will say needs to be done on visas, guns, and other issues. but if you're looking for a wholesale change in strategy, that's not what the president will offer tonight. this is an intensification of what's already being done. not a change in strategy. >> /* >> and he'll be speaking from the oval office. the podium there at the ready. and there's a reason for the rare setting for the president. correct? >> this is an extremely rare speech from the oval office. he's only given two others. but his other go-to venue, the grand hall in the white house is right now filled with christmas decorations, which would hardly be an appropriate background for
a speech on terrorism. >> thank you. and the president's address begins at 8:00 p.m. eastern, right here on abc. and terror and isis is fueling the presidential debate. the presidential candidates talking tough. and hillary clinton parting ways with the white house, saying america is not winning the battle. trump saying some american muslims should be closely monitored. and cruz rising in the polls with an aggressive position. here's devin dwyer. >> reporter: tonight, hillary clinton says the u.s. fight against isis is falling short. >> we're not winning, but it's too soon to say if we're doing everything we need to do. >> reporter: trump and clinton now in a statistical tie. today facing off about how to fight isis and talk about the terror threat. here's clinton on "this week". >> what's the problem with radical islam? >> the problem is, that sounds like we're declaring war against a religion. >> radical islamic terrorism. you look at the names, what's happened, you tell me. >> reporter: trump is open to
racial profiling. clinton is worried it could make the threat worse. >> they'll use that as a tool to say, we're at war against the west. >> reporter: both candidates want a more aggressive military campaign in iraq and syria. when ted cruz suggested this -- >> we'll carpet bomb them into oblivion. >> reporter: clinton says it's not that easy. >> it's hard to decide who the bad guys are. >> reporter: trump saying he will agree to a ban on the no-fly list. as for boots on the ground, trump said he's open to deploying american combat forces. clinton said she would like to see more than the 50 special
forces that president obama has approved. >> thank you. and let's head overseas, an apparent lone wolf attacker taken down in london. stabbing two before being brought down by police. authorities are treating it as a terrorist incident. jennifer eccleston reporting in from london tonight. >> reporter: cell phone video captures a terrifying scene. >> tase him, tase him, tase him, tase him. >> reporter: a man with a knife lunging at police at a london subway station after allegedly stabbing two people. >> it's a risk. life is a risk here. >> reporter: police subduing him with a taser. both survive but tonight scotland yard is calling the attack a "terrorist incident." police searching a home in london tonight.
