FBI hunting 12-strong terrorist "sleeper cell" linked to brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar
Daily Mirror (UK) ^ | 21 April 2013 | Staff

Posted on 04/20/2013 5:27:35 PM PDT by rjbemsha

The FBI was last night hunting a 12-strong terrorist “sleeper cell” linked to the Boston marathon bomb brothers.

Police believe Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were specially trained to carry out the devastating attack.

More than 1,000 FBI agents were last night working to track down the cell and arrested a man and two women 60 miles from Boston in the hours before Dzhokhar’s dramatic capture after a bloody shootout on Friday.

A source close to the investigation said: “We have no doubt the brothers were not acting alone. The devices used to detonate the two bombs were highly sophisticated and not the kind of thing people learn from Google.

“They were too advanced. Someone gave the brothers the skills and it is now our job to find out just who they were. Agents think the sleeper cell has up to a dozen members and has been waiting several years for their day to come.”

The "sleeper cells" are only a symptom. To kill the disease, you need to start with mullahs (A lot who reside in Saudi) "activating" the cells.

You get more than 9 and a couple of them are apt to act prematurely...

I was thinking the same thing. Also, to get relevant photos and content deemed to sensitive to publish, you have to go to foreign papers.

But what would their motive be?

Try as I might, I just can't figure out why they would they would want to throw bombs and kill US citizens.

It's a mystery.

It just makes no sense.

were specially trained to carry out the devastating attack.

Anybody with an IQ above 90 could have done the same thing.

This was hardly a technical accomplishment.

The "training" was the brain washing to go out and jihad.

The American news media is still trying to pin this on conservatives and covers for Islam which is the cause of the bombings

I hope that Dzhokhar wakes up soon and starts talking. My guess is this will be how he avoids the death penalty...

If he talks he will be safest in prison.

The cell, in all likelihood, is long gone and deep underground. They probably went their separate ways weeks or months ago. The two brothers were merely the trained, financed and equipped designated hitters for the cell- cutouts and martyrs.

Again Proven: You have to go outside the US to get serious reporting on the US (in this case, London’s Daily Mirror). The reporters here, and especially the editors, are all cowed by the Democrats.

It was Islamic terrorism.

but the news media is giving what for the motive , tax day?

above all , the news media want to say that Obama couldn't have let a terrorist act happen . but it did happen and the media will cover it up

I asked some average low info voter today what he thought the motive was and he said “ bored teenagers” I guess that's one of the messages the media is implanting in people's minds

This part is astonishing:

“US Government officials have said the brothers were not under surveillance as possible militants. And an FBI statement said the matter was closed because interviews with Tamerlan and family members “did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign”. But now they believe the pair, who emigrated to the United States from Dagestan about a decade ago, were part of a terror cell.”

So the billions of dollars we give these officials to protect us now consists of asking the suspect and his family if they are terrorists and if they say no..case closed?

Good God...what is going on in our government? We need to immediately suspend every single Muslim and foreign born employee in our government until this is sorted out!!

From the head on down.

And I’ll betcha more than just those two brothers were there at the Marathon that day.. I still think they should further investigate ‘the coach’ and ‘old man in down jacket with beanie cap on (pushing a cart or stroller)’, to name a few (including possible funding by Al-Harbi).
