The three New Bedford suspects will probably not be charged unless authorities can prove they knew ahead of time about the bombs, or knew where the younger Tsarnaev was hiding. But the Daily Mirror in London is reporting that the FBI is on the trail of a “12-strong terrorist ‘sleeper cell’ linked to brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev”:

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 operatives 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.”

A specialist team of CIA and FBI interrogators was yesterday flown to a Boston hospital to grill wounded Dzhokhar, 19, about the secret group. The University of Massachusetts student was caught on Friday after hiding out in a boat parked in a garden in locked down Watertown the day after a gun battle with police left his 26-year-old brother and a rookie cop dead.

Dzhokhar is said to have run his brother over as he escaped in a stolen car while Tamerlan lay handcuffed on the ground. They were carrying six bombs with them at the time, three of which ­exploded, as well as a handgun and rifle. The devices were thought to be pipe bombs.

Last night Dzhokhar – badly wounded but alive – lay handcuffed to his hospital bed under armed guard. The other three arrested in the port of New Bedford are also believed to be of college age.

Caution: I have been unable to find any other media outlet that is independently reporting this story. Any mentions of a sleeper cell associated with the brothers references the Mirror article. This is either a ginormous scoop by the Mirror or a tabloid fantasy.

All the recent talk about whether or not the brothers "self-radicalized" misses the essential point. Growing up in Cambridge, did they ever encounter a view-point that would be at odds with their own? Did they ever receive any encouragement to associate America with anything good? Were they ever encouraged to separate themselves from their (largely imaginary) Chechen identity and assimilate into American culture? Or, rather, were they encouraged to nurse every grievance real or imagined? Were they taught about all of America's faults but none of her virtues? I expect we will have many, many more radicals like this cell before too long, God help us.

Welcome to 'Civilization Jihad', there will be more to come as the purpose of CJ is to make us aware of Islam and to make us think about how we abuse Islam every day with our actions.... Soon we will be changing our normal methods of being Americans out of fear of Islam.
How do we counter this pressure from Jihad?
Is there a way to push back against Civilization Jihad?
Think about it.....

Anybody with that license on their car should be, at the very least, soundly thrashed.

I have yet to read any account where friends or family recognized the released pictures of the suspects and called the authorities to identify them. Curious, hey?

The moment reports broke of two Boston Marathon explosions, this author correctly identified both as having the fingerprints of:1) terrorist origin(confirmed by a former PLO extremist - Mr. Walid Shoebat, at Shoebat.com) 2) muslim islamist radical element,3)an IED similiar to ones first used in Iraq (Baghdad, Kabul) and Afghanistan (except with a remote control device, not 'pressure'), 4)was conducted by "terrorist cell," within the USA 4)had identifiable international hierachal command structure(Chechnya), 5)was a known technology, taught in islamic, terrorist training camps in middle eastern nations (Bin Ladin) or pacific island nations. MSM denied this analysis- preferring to misinform and disinform US citizens of the true nature of this tragic event. Lax vigilance ,disorganized intelligence and dismanteling of a bottom-up type "man-on-the-ground" intelligence network...has resulted in total dispreparation for islamic terrorist networks already operating inside the USA. Pray. Amen. NAH! USA Islamic terrorism is "the new normal (been to a local mosque, lately? And that IMAM?)." Now, its home grown!!! So much for Napolita no/Obama teams' immigration policies...a true joke (how's that 2011 FBI interview with the older brother???HUH???)!!! And the world is laughing. Putin, is too! It'll take another two years to put any type of an informational (read:intelligence) gathering network as that existed after 9/11/01in place. Gird ones loins!!! Remember: Obama said after Seal Team 6 eradicated Bin Ladin...terrorism is dead! Or words to that effect...so did his jocular side-kick "smokey Joe!"

Cambridge is not exactly the heart of conservative thought and principles in this country. It's more a very liberal enclave of Marx, lenin, and Engels revolutionary thought, IMHO.

Well, I hope authorities continue pursuing the leads they have. When I first heard about the younger bro running over the elder, I thought it might not be true. At least the car the "right" bumper sticker. COEXIST, indeed.
