    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.

    .

    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.”

    No one besides the Mirror has reported this. Andy Lines is the reporter behind the “scoop”. He used to cover American politics but hasn’t done so for nearly a decade. He rejoined the Mirror barely a month ago, after spending time as a freelance sports reporter. His first piece for the Mirror was about black British soccer players.

    At the moment, this seems as likely to be a reporter floating quotes from a dubious source as a real scoop. I won’t rule out a larger group of terrorists, but not convinced of anything.

    I’ve seen reports of the guys in New Bedford, but nothing clear is being reported.

    They mentioned the story on Coast to Coast last night, I had to look it up.

    I’d wait for some independent verification. So far the survivor has told the police they were the only ones. We shall see if he is being truthful or not.

    I’m skeptical enough not to take the current official story of the brothers acting alone at face value. It’s possible that investigators want any other conspirators to think the FBI isn’t hot on their tails.

    The Mirror cites the source as saying, “The devices used to detonate the two bombs were highly sophisticated and not the kind of thing people learn from Google.”

    That is a very dubious claim, which is a big reason why I have reservations about the story. Google “cell phone detonator schematics” & you can build one yourself, assuming you have basic soldering skills Apparently some people use them for good, by using them to set of fireworks!

    You can always trust what a terrorist says.

    But nothing bad can happen because you got your Second Amendment, right?

    The fellow on the watch list can’t get on you plane, but he can go to the local gun store and buy a Bushmaster® assault rifle thanks to the NRA, and the Republican congress.

    Never let a crisis go to waste.

    I fully expect the President and Congress to use this as another reason to heap more bureaucracy onto a shrinking tax base.
