The drama which unfolded over the last five days is apparently not over. With the dramatic events of Thursday and Friday still fresh in everyone’s mind, the arrest of three more individuals in New Bedford, MA last night before the final shoot out with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev appears to be only the tip of the iceberg. According to the Sunday morning edition of the U.K. Mirror, there is a now active 12 member terrorist sleeper cell in the United States:
From the article by Christopher Bucktin and Andy Lines:
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 major concern as I see it now is the silence which has suddenly descended over the eyes of the American public. After what appeared as a panic initiated release due to a lack of action by the authorities of the photos of the two brothers, now the Federal Government has gone quiet again instead of alerting the public that there is further danger; possibly in the very near future. While the entire operation appears to have been completely botched by the authorities and the media whereas the brothers could have probably been captured inside of their home instead of putting the public at risk, this piece of news from the Mirror, if true, indicates that there is the risk of something far larger happening soon.
Thus begging the question:
Why haven’t the authorities asked for the public’s help this time?
For a group of domestic security spooks who spend most of their efforts spying on the Libertarians, Tea Party, and pro-2nd Amendment Patriot type groups, it might be wise to start addressing the actual threats to our liberties initiated by radical Islamists roaming our countryside and inside the hallways of the Federal Government.
