Investigators are focusing on about a dozen more people in connection with a wide-ranging terror investigation that has netted arrests in Colorado and New York City, a source familiar with the investigation said Tuesday.

Federal agents arrested three men late Saturday in connection with what the Justice Department has said was a plot to detonate bombs in the United States.

Najibullah Zazi, his father Mohammed Wali Zazi and Muslim cleric Ahmad Wais Afzali are charged with lying to federal agents.

All three suspects are originally from Afghanistan. Mohammed Wali Zazi is a naturalized U.S. citizen, while Afzali and Najibullah Zazi are permanent legal residents. If convicted, each could face eight years in prison.

    We need to be careful in arresting leaders of these Muslim mosk's , who are acting as informants unless they pose a threat to the US.

    We need to see the actual details to truly form an opinion here.
