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:

FBI hunting 12-strong terrorist “sleeper cell” linked to brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

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.”
