Nonsense. The purpose of terror is to undermine & strike fear into the heart of the civilian populace of your enemy. The only ones doing that at present are the FBI by claiming that a mysterious sleeper cell exists, just waiting, somewhere in the shadows, ready to pounce and do more evil against the USA. The terrorist 'Al Qaeda' network could have claimed this one with no-one getting anything on the actual operatives involved, because like Anonymous, 'Al Qaeda' is just an idea, a network of individuals - albeit one with complex and well-equipped logistical capabilities in certain areas.
An overseas sponsor for terror is highly likely in general, and given what we know, if this was a REAL terrorist attack, and not (as I believe) a false flag, then it could be that the Saudis have a hand in it, but that Saudi intelligence has stepped in and gagged them.
As it stands, an ethereal terrorist group 'somewhere' have sponsored the Tsarnaevs, are presently enabling a sleeper cell, and will likely 'order' a strike by that cell on a major target/ targets if it looks like the FBI are getting too close to catching wind of them.
That is, if the whole thing wasn't a false flag from the beginning to the middle (where we're at) and onwards to the end. As I suspect it will be one day proven.
