Sleeper Cell in America?

364022-boston-bomb-suspectsCapping off a week of misinformation, confusion, contradiction, and error from the media and law enforcement, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino insisted Sunday that the Boston Marathon jihad bombers acted alone, even as it was becoming increasingly obvious that they did not. The UK’s Mirror reported on the same day that “the FBI was last night hunting a 12-strong terrorist ‘sleeper cell’ linked to the Boston marathon bomb brothers.” And so the jihad in Boston widens to proportions that are as yet impossible to calculate – as are the potential casualty rates.

The Mirror added: “Police believe Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were specially trained to carry out the devastating attack” and quoted an unnamed source saying: “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.”

And so, according to the Mirror, “more than 1,000 FBI operatives” were working to find the members of this sleeper cell. It was unclear whether or not that would be enough, given the fact that in 2011 the Obama Administration purged training materials of all truthful material about Islamic jihad terrorism. So these 1,000 “FBI operatives” are fumbling along in the dark, pretending that there is no such thing as an Islamic terrorist while hunting for Islamic terrorists.

This willful ignorance is, of course, being aided and abetted by the mainstream media, which continues to shrug its shoulders in bewilderment and claim that the motives of the Boston Marathon bombers are a mystery. In a Saturday article entitled “Motive still unclear after bombing suspect’s arrest,” the Associated Press noted that investigators were “establish[ing] the motive for the deadly attack and the scope of the plot.” The absurdity of 1,000 FBI agents hunting for a jihadi sleeper cell while investigators searched for a motive for the attack was compounded by the fact that on the same day that AP made this bizarre claim, the Los Angeles Times reported that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was “identified by a foreign government as a ‘follower of radical Islam and a strong believer’ whose personality had changed drastically in just a year, according to the FBI.”

In October 2011, Dwight C. Holton, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, emphasized that “training materials that portray Islam as a religion of violence or with a tendency towards violence are wrong, they are offensive, and they are contrary to everything that this president, this attorney general and Department of Justice stands for. They will not be tolerated.” And so the FBI in 2013, in passing along a description of one of the Boston jihadis as a “follower of radical Islam,” was saying he was an adherent of a belief system that the Feds were officially committed to denying even existed.

The absurdities multiply, as they always do in the mainstream media and among law enforcement officials at a time like this (most notoriously in the Obama Administration’s classification of the Fort Hood jihad massacre of thirteen Americans as “workplace violence”). Lisa Wangsness in the Boston Globe granted that “Islam might have had secondary role in Boston attacks,” but added that “scholars cautioned Friday against concluding that the Tsarnaevs’ motives were purely religious. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed in a firefight with police early Friday morning, appeared to sympathize with Islamic extremists agitating for Chechen independence from Russia.”

Wangsness did not bother to explain why “Islamic extremists agitating for Chechen independence from Russia” would think a strike in Boston, Massachusetts would aid the cause of the independence of Chechnya. Nor did she explore the possibility that Islamic jihadis agitating for a global caliphate might think a strike on Boston would be a capital idea, for that would reveal the jihadi brothers’ motives to be “purely religious” after all. She made it clear that anyone who thought that must be wickedly trying to victimize innocent Muslims, quoting Imam Suhaib Webb of the Islamic Society of Boston: “This will open the door to the Islamophobic industry, an industry of ill-educated bigots, to attack Muslim communities.”

The Globe article doesn’t mention that the Tsarnaev brothers actually attended Muslim prayers at the Islamic Society of Boston. Nor does it acknowledge the possibility that anyone might want to explore how jihadis use Islamic texts and teachings to justify violence and supremacism not in order to “attack Muslim communities,” but to try to formulate effective strategies for keeping members of those Muslim communities from attacking us.

And in the Chicago Tribune, Manya A. Brachear took Wangsness’ Muslim victimhood posturing one step farther in an article entitled “Muslims guard against backlash.” She wrote: “The Council on American Islamic Relations again offered sympathy to victims of the Boston Marathon bombing on Friday, but added a plea for Americans not to generalize and conclude that Muslim teachings influenced the suspect in any way.” She quoted CAIR’s Ahmed Rehab: “Our focus is primarily on the victims. We don’t want to be drawn into defending ourselves.” But that was what the whole article was about. Completely forgetting the victims of the Boston jihad attacks, the article went on: “Citing acts of violence in Boston and New York, Rehab blamed Islamophobic forces for inciting hate crimes. He said that phenomenon poses a bigger threat than ‘innocently ignorant individuals.’” And again, there was no consideration of the possibility that one might want to investigate the role of Islam in jihad attacks in order to prevent hate crimes, not provoke them.

Brachear also doesn’t mention (of course) that Ahmed Rehab is an operative of a Hamas-linked Muslim Brotherhood group that has had several of its officials convicted of jihad terror activity. CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. Its California chapter distributed posters telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI. CAIR has opposed every anti-terror measure that has ever been proposed or implemented.

This always happens: every time there is a jihad terror attack or foiled plot, the mainstream media fills up with stories about Muslims worrying about a “backlash.” The “backlash” itself never materializes. In reality, the stream of stories about fears of “backlash” are designed to deflect attention away from the jihad attack and onto Muslims as victims, who as victims ought to be exempt from scrutiny and accountability (even though no U.S. mosque or Islamic school has any program designed to teach against the al-Qaeda version of Islam that they ostensibly reject).

As David J. Rusin noted in National Review last January, “a detailed analysis of FBI statistics covering ten full calendar years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks reveals that, on a per capita basis, American Muslims, contrary to spin, have been subjected to hate crimes less often than other prominent minorities. From 2002 to 2011, Muslims are estimated to have suffered hate crimes at a frequency of 6.0 incidents per 100,000 per year – 10 percent lower than blacks (6.7), 48 percent lower than homosexuals and bisexuals (11.5), and 59 percent lower than Jews (14.8). Americans should keep these numbers in mind whenever Islamists attempt to silence critics by invoking Muslim victimhood.”

No victimization of even one innocent person is ever acceptable. These “backlash” stories, however, are just tools in the hands of Islamic supremacists, which they use once again to evade any responsibility to clean up their communities and stop the spread of the jihad doctrine and Islamic supremacism.

And yet there is an Islamic jihad sleeper cell apparently involved in the jihad attack at the Boston Marathon. That shows the cost of this politically correct obfuscation and victimhood posturing.

    RE: "Sleeper Cell in America?"

    Folks, America's Sleeper Cell is Barack Hussein Obama!

    ….America's sleep-ing cell is the lazy Government dependence, low-information, you-owe-me, deadbeat, KFC-Obama voter.

    • Asher

      Agree with you 100%

    • Boots

      Actually the sleeper cells are traditional American media (AP, ABC, NBC, CBS, most newspapers, NPR) and academia. They hate our freedoms more than they fear the loss of theirs.

      • Winston

        You are right, Boots. The socialist sleeper cells which are Islamic-friendly have been in America since the early 1900's just waiting to spring onto the scene through a illegitimate el Presidente'. Now, they are operating fully and openly through college classrooms, voter action groups, class warfare, welfare entitlements, Operation Fast & Furious, Congress, News Media, Hollywood movies and ignorant talking heads, etc.. They now have opened the nations's doors to radical Islamic terrorists via "student visas" and the FBI has proven they're unable to track them all and it seems that any government investigations are done post-terrorist event…after innocent Americans are murdered. It's time to take back this nation from these maggot laden immoral evil people.

  • Dan Flaherty

    Excellent article! Bravo Mr. Spencer.

    • Cassandra

      Totally agree. Great article. I would ask CAIR to give me examples of BACKLASH against Muslims. I do not think there was ever any.

  • AdinaK

    There are many sleeper cells in America and most are tied into Iran's Hezbollah operatives, but they cooperate with their Sunni jihadi counterparts, as necessary –

    As to the Boston jihad, well, here is a good place to connect the dots –

    Have been warning about the above for quite some time, and it is not for nothing –

    Adina Kutnicki, Israel

    • Asher

      Yep, They are here…same enemies that keep using similar IEDS and bombs in Israel!

    • EarlyBird

      No, Adina, there are NOT "many sleeper cells in America," linked to Israel's enemies. You are trying to fuse Israel with the US in this regard, to ensure that Israel completely co-opts American foreign policy.

      • defcon 4

        How do you know how many sleeper cells are in America Ahmed? Have you been working with them?

        • EarlyBird

          Shhh! Don't blow my cover, DipCom!

          • defcon 4

            You're the Sinn Fein to the IRA, or the CAIR to Hamas/Hezbollah/Al Qaida.

      • Mary Sue

        bushwah. Islamists are to a man completely anti-Israel.

        Why do you hate Jews so much, bird?

        • EarlyBird

          I don't hate anyone. I certainly don't hate Jews. I hate Israelis attempting to run American foreign policy, because unlike you, I put my country first.

          Why are you such an idiot, Bubbles?

          • defcon 4

            Yes, because no one kufr could ever be intelligent enough to see through your Zionist strawman.

      • Lan Astaslem

        take a walk you Jew hating dhimmi

        • EarlyBird

          That's Jew hating Communist dhimmi to you, nitwit!

          • defcon 4

            Dhimmi? Or lying true believer?

  • Adam

    The parents and the aunt did not have a normal reaction to their sons violence, they were more concerned with accusations that the FBI set them up then with shock or grief. Maybe the sleeper cell involved the entire family all strategically located in different cities.

  • MeSoHornish

    The bombs used in Boston, pressure cookers filled with explosives, reflect the methods advocated by Inspire, the English language magazine published by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the movement's Yemeni offshoot, which has also urged aspiring jihadists to launch attacks in their own countries.

  • EthanP

    There is a desperate need by the left, (the Mayor IS such) that this was not part of a wider Jihadist plot we must wonder WHY. They can claim this has nothing to do with 'peaceful' Islam. Yet when was the last time anywhere you heard of an Amish or Morman terrorist.

  • pierce

    If there are Sleeper Cells in America, and I firmly believe there are, there are nonbelievers of the status quo, and those nonbelievers are the problem. One of those nonbelievers is our President. He has openly criticized both President George W Bush, and Vice President Dick Cheney for their implementation of WATER BOARDING, which at least, in this observer's eyes, was an effective deterrent to to terrorism, and many other things. Some people choose to be naive, and trust anyone, and anything, and see no need for our military. GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF THE SAND MISTER PRESIDENT, YOU ARE EITHER PART OF THE PROBLEM, OR ARE THE PROBLEM. IT IS TIME YOU WAKE UP.

    • WildJew

      A good place to look for a sleeper cell? The White House.

  • Tanstaafl

    I’ll take Islam for 200, Alex…….

  • WildJew

    What will it take for Americans to wake up to the threat from Islam? Islamic nuclear bombs detonated in American cities? Americans elected, then re-elected this dangerous Muslim-born president. What's next?

    • Asher

      First the stealth Jihad through government policies, Obamacare, regulations, attacks on religious organizations, destroying the economy, now full blown Jihad to further drain America's resources especially on police departments and budgets! Very plain to those of us who are astute with eyes wide open!

    • Boots

      I don't want it to happen but if it does, please be in a blue state who helped put someone who doesn't have his country's interest at heart in the White House. If Islamists had the capability to use nuclear weapons, they would already have been used against us… and like you I recognize it's just a matter of time before it happens.

      • Gerald

        Whether the attack takes place in a blue state or a red state it will always be the innocent victims who will suffer and never the enablers of this Muslim jihadists.

    • EarlyBird

      But WildJew, which American are not "awake" to the threat of Islamist terror? Arent' you aware that since 9/11 our entire intelligence apparatus and law enforcement have been completely focused on derailing plots against the US, and in fact have done so many times?

      Who's asleep about the threats in America? Or rather, what would be the policy we should have to ensure you that we're all "awake?" What specifically, would you have the US do?

      • defcon 4

        Yeah and the Ft. Hood massacre was determined to be "workplace violence".

        • EarlyBird

          No, it wasn't. The question remains: what policies should change, foreign and domestic?

          • Mary Sue

            yes it was.

          • EarlyBird

            What policies should we change, foreign and domestic? Oh let me answer for you:

            Foreign policy: nuke Mecca, Tehran, Islamabad and Riyad.
            Domestic: outlaw the practice of Islam, inter every Muslim in America, stop all immigration, suspend the Constitution.

          • defcon 4

            Erly turd gets face palmed….AGAIN!

          • EarlyBird

            Nope. I just get crickets when I ask the obvious question: what do we do differently? Your answers would either show that we're doing everything we really can to thwart these attacks right now, or expose your willingness to undo the Constitution the moment you get scared.

          • defcon 4

            Um, there are muslime "civil rights" groups trying to do the same thing — yet you never condemn them Mehmet.

  • bobh

    No doubt there are sleeper cells all over the place and our politicians are working tirelessly to import even more.

    • WildJew

      My U.S. Senator is apparently.

      • Mary Sue

        oh. which one do you got?

        • defcon 4

          I'd suspect his senator is probably mine as well. A left coast senator of some prominence whose past history includes being mayor of a notoriously leftist coastal city.

  • Rifleman

    A Marxist can wear a mao suit and wave a red flag, and our msm wouldn't see them. Jihad is the same, but the jihadis keep slapping them in the face. If innocent people weren't being killed, it would be funny to watch.

  • Asher

    Remember, The Muslim Brotherhood is in Homeland Security and all organizations!

    • Winston

      And don't forget that Hillary Clinton's "special" personal girl friend assistant is a Muslim and "married" to former Democrat congressman Anthony Weiner… yes the same fellow who showed a photo of his weenie on UTube!

  • visitor

    Funny, but today's NY Times reports that "[t]he authorities have grown increasingly certain that the two men suspected in the Boston Marathon bombings acted on their own…" Of course, an unnamed source of a sensationalist British tabloid must be given greater credibility than the FBI, the CIA, the Boston Police Department, or any other part of the Big Government Conspiracy to hide the truth.

    It would be helpful if we were guided by diligent investigation by the authorities rather than whatever media-driven hype fits our preexisting prejudices. Witness the infamous NY Post "Bag Men" photos or the phony kerfluffle over the Saudi student who ran from the scene (like anyone else whose legs weren't shattered).

    There may or may not be a hidden sleeper cell but it's certain the UK Daily Mirror won't be the source of intelligence. I'd put more trust in the US intelligence community than British tabloids.

    • RebeccaJean

      I would say the Daily Mirror has every bit as much credibility as the NY Times. They both are left wing rags.

  • Connelly Radbone

    It's so sad that so many "smart" people are really dense. They can't see the forest from the trees.

  • Winston

    There is no doubt in my mind that the Obama administration is filtering money and weapons to Islamic radicals through Mexican drug organizations. And, that there are many… many… Islamic terrorist cells across America. Tens of thousands of young Saudi Arabians are in America on student visas… but how many are staying beyond their visa expirations? With tens of thousands of them in America just how many can be observed and followed/tracked by the FBI? When you think that Obama has had over 40 muslims float through the White House and has even appointed several Islamists to high level government positions who have ties to terrorists in the middle east, shouldn't this be a concern to Congress? What in the he## is going on in America that an illegitimate president can get by with so much? Is there a planned conspiracy by neo-cons in Congress and socialist liberals to bring down the nation? Think about it.

    • EarlyBird

      Winston, what gives you "no doubt" in your addled little mind that Obama is "filtering money and weapons to Islamic radicals through Mexican drug organizations," to support Islamist terror cells in America?

      • Winston

        EarlyBird: you must lead a sheltered life not to be aware fo the infiltation of radical Islamic terrorists through Central and South American socialist countries…then they trek through Mexico and cross the border as do other illegal aliens. If you do not believe it then do your own research. Obama has been giving millions upon millions of taxpayer dollars to Hamas, Hezbollah, PLO, Muslim Brotherhood and other radicals and that does not include fighter planes, tanks, and weaponry. Where do you think the Muslim Brotherhood got their weapons in Libya…through that American embassy and it is why those four Americans were murdered…to cover it up. Why do you think anyone who has knowledge of the Benghazi murders have been told not to talk to the media? They've been shut down.

      • Lan Astaslem

    Sometimes there really are elaborate conspiracies to do evil: e.g., 9/11 or the assassination of Lincoln.
    And sometimes there are two-man conspiracies: e.g., the Oklahoma bombers McVeigh and Nichols.
    and sometimes there are lone wolves: e.g., Eric Rudolf or the Unibomber.

    Unlike some posters here, I don't pretend to have greater knowledge or investigatory know-how than our intelligence community. I am willing to go wherever the evidence leads but I want facts, not prejudices.

    • EarlyBird

      Very well said.

      Let's just keep in mind this site's primary mission: to obliterate any distinction between Israeli and US foreign policy, and fuse each nation's responses to Muslim terror. Specifically, the idea is to eliminate any distinction between the terrorists who fight Israel and the terrorists who fight the US and the West.

      Of course, the Bubbas on this site are now going to scream that I'm an "anti-Semite," but they're idiots.

    • visitor

      "MSM" is quoting senior intelligence officials. Are they too part of the vast conspiracy to hide the truth that only bloggers and talk radio understand? You can't trust the FBI or the CIA, but you apparently are quite willing to trust "unnamed sources" for a sensationalist tabloid whose "reporting" reinforces your preexisting conclusion?

    Soon after the atrocity it became clear that this was the work of peace-loving jihadists. As more information emerged it also seemed obvious that this was a cell, perhaps a sleeper-cell. (But where was the support group — the brothers evidently lacked a hiding place, an escape plan, or even money. Perhaps they were tricked and betrayed). Islam has always sought world conquest. They outrank even Christian Europe (now eager to forget a millenium of their history) as brutal imperialists. No atrocity, no matter how horrifying, should surprise us. What is shocking is how American and European "liberals" (alas, I was woven of that fine cloth) are so slow to wake up. Mr. Obama may possibly now take notice.

      Even Kindles are full of nonsense like "Girl with Dragon Tattoo" and "If I did it" type of literary diarrhea.
      Agree, not all are illiterate, but most becoming exactly that. Thanks to Department of Propaganda and to some degree even professional sports. Since the time to settle down with a book is low priority priority.
      Elementary school anal intercourse instructions are so much more vital to survival of democratic society.

  • EarlyBird

    I don't know what would be worse: the Tsarnev brothers being part of an organized cell, or actually having just acted alone by way of being radicalized via the Internet. Organizations are vulnerable by virtue of being organized, having a larger number of people who need to communicate and cooperate, etc. But it's got to be a lot harder for law enforcement to prevent the acts of a couple of young guys who just decide to go jihad.

    • Winston

      You are second guessing the jihadist ties these two brothers have through their Islamic mosque (already proven to be a breeding ground for radicals), other terrorists in Chechniya, etc.. Why do you think the Homeland Security chief (Napolitano) was trying to secretly deport the first person of interest in the Boston Marathon bombings back to Saudi Arabia on a private jet? And, he was given a clean shave while in the hospita to remove the appearance of being a radical terrorist whose family has numerous ties to al Qaeda.

      • EarlyBird

        I'm not second guessing anything. I'm not even speaking directly about the Tsarnev brothers.

        I'm asking generally speaking, if you were to ask a law enforcement expert, what is harder to identify and break up, a terror attack done by an organization, or a "lone wolf" scenario, surely they would say the latter.

        As for the Tsarnevs, I expect we'll find simply that the older brother was radicalized in Chechnya, and on the internet, and by an imam, etc., but that he wasn't supplied by a larger organization. It's doesn't take much real training, and very little money, to put together the bombs they did, and doesn't take a larger organization risking failure to pull it off.

        Actually, Bubbles, you are entirely wrong, AGAIN. These are the facts, not that you'll even consider them:

        Tsarnev shouted his disagreement with his imam on two occasions during Friday sermons:

        – Once when the imam was praising the peaceful example provided by Martin Luther King, Jr.

        – Once when the imam was encouraging Muslims in America to enjoy American holidays like Thanksgiving, the Fourth of July, etc., and how it is perfectly compatible with Islam.

        This hardly sounds like the mosque that was radically hateful of the US, you dolt. Tsarnev was radicalized via an Australian radial imam in Australia via the web, and probably when he visited Chechnya for six months.

        Pull your stupid head out.

          How does a non radical mosque handle the pervasive, rabid antisemitism found in the holy quran? How about the genocidal Jew hate found in the hadith? How about the fact your most holy and perfect man was a mass murdering, Jew hating psychopath?

          • EarlyBird

            Apparently, since the vast majority of Muslims are not rabid and hateful, they find a way.

            We do know that the Cambridge mosque which the older Tsarnev attended did nothing to inspire his rampage. We know that it was Muslims in Canada who tipped off and worked with law enforcement to disrupt this plot on the Canadian railway.

            We know you're a bigoted idiot who would actually help the Islamist terrorists by virtue of treating every single Muslim as a terrorist or would-be terrorist.

            No go away, Adolph.

          EarlyBird, this is so ridiculous. The Tsarnev brothers were clearly radicalized by some sort of ignorance at another place infiltrated by Islamist imperialists. The Tsarnev brothers probably had a connection to Islamist Iran.

    Every American should make it their business to befriend a poorly assimilated Moslem youth like the Tsarnaev boys. And to ensure that he won't turn jihadist this is what you must do: Hug him tightly and don't let go until you squeeze all the hatred out of him. Of course if you hug and squeeze him long enough you might crush him to death which would also work in preventing him from turning jihadist.

    We need to try to understand Lucifer better, so we don't keep making him angry. After all, the guy has his own kingdom, so he must have something going for him. Right?
    Just sayin…

    till liberals/leftists stop support Jihadists with support of their biased, corrupted MSM Islam will be promoted thru violence Jihad as Boston bombing was and as non-violence Jihad as infiltration and penetration of Islamists into our Educational system, MSM, and highest echelon of Power.
    From the day of that terrorist act leftists MSM hysterically predicted and hoped that terrorists would be next McVeigh, white American but not immigrant Muslim. CNN, MSMBC, NBC…. all of them refused thought that it could be Muslim. It is contradictory their religion "Liberalism" and disturb their plan to make this country socialis… or … whatever but not our Founding Fathers capitalistic country with freedom and opportunity for all.

    "Anti-Islamic backlash" is, of course, a straw man, and Robert Spencer is right to note as much. The real issue is Islamic frontlash — we saw an example of that a week ago in Boston. Muslims lashing out at the innocent is the problem, not sensible people ("Islamophobes") who complain about it after the fact. CAIR is a jihadist enabler.

  • RAM

    If it walks like a duck…

    If we wanted to prevent this elusive backlash, we’d go out of our way to protect peaceful Muslims from aggressive terrorists, terrorist sympathizers and imams in their own communities. Once joining the bad guys becomes the path of least resistance for Muslims in a given area, only trouble can result.

      Peaceful muslimes are just trying to achieve the same ends as their more violent and true to islamic form brethren, but by different means.

  • wondering

    It's not like terrorist motives have to be "purely religious" to kill — do we really have to wait 'til someone openly declares "purely religious" terrorist motives to be stopped?

    there are “islamophobes” and there are those who are not informed

    The Communist Party has sleeper cells all over this country under the control of the CPUSA (Google it). They actively cooperate with allied Islamic radicals in their war on Democracy.
