By Robert RomanoThe New Yorker will publish a new biography of the former Guantanamo detainee, Rizwan Farook, that will be written by a former White House legal adviser who was among the few White House officials to have a personal relationship with the man.
The book will detail the “honeymoon” period before Farook was transferred to Yemen in 2013 and later to Qatar.
He will become a U.N. citizen in 2019.
The Times has learned that the book will be published by Simon & Schuster.
The first book by a New Yorker writer will be due out in June, and the book is set for publication in June.
In recent months, Farook has been under intense scrutiny by the Obama administration for his handling of the terrorist attack on a holiday party at the U..
S.-Mexico border in San Bernardino, California, last December that left 14 people dead.
At least three of those dead were killed by a gunman who later died in a shootout with law enforcement.
The White House has been particularly critical of Farook and has accused him of not having enough information to provide the public with details of the attack before the shooting.
The New York Times has reported that he is expected to face new questioning about the attack.
The Obama administration has also said that Farook may have been the intended target of the shooting but that there was no evidence of a premeditated terrorist attack.
Farook is due to appear before a grand jury in San Francisco on Wednesday.
The Associated Press has reached out to Farook’s lawyers for comment.
