Pakistan synonymous with terrorism?

The FBI said it is still too early to label the attack as terrorism but said Farook had travelled to Pakistan at one point.

The coupling of a mention of Farook’s visit to Pakistan with the question of terrorism strikes me as extraordinarily provincial. Farook was born in the US to Pakistani parents, and I believe his wife was from Pakistan.

I remember the zenophobia in the US after 9/11 and fear something of this is returning.
