Inspire Magazine: Tiger Beat for Terrorists*
SNIPPET: “The 5th issue of Inspire Magazine has been released, and there is plenty to not like, and to justify ongoing efforts to take out Samir Khan & Co. But let’s give credit where credit is due, and thank the boys in Yemen for a couple of contributions to counter-terrorism.”

“Counterterrorism Suffers, al-Qaida Benefits from Yemen Turmoil”
by IPT News Apr 6, 2011 at 3:26 pm
SNIPPET: “Counterterrorism operations in Yemen “have ground to a halt,” and al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) is the big beneficiary, the New York Times reports. Diplomats and counterterrorism officials say that AQAP (the organization linked to the Fort Hood massacre and the Underwear Bomber’s attempted suicide attack on a plane near Detroit) is now able “to operate more freely inside the country and to increase plotting for possible attacks against Europe and the United States,” according to the Times.
Even worse, the news comes as American intelligence officials have learned that AQAP officials have increased their planning discussions about another attack. The latest issue of AQAP’s Inspire Magazine also reinforces the organization’s consistent emphasis on carrying out attacks in the West. “ Killing 10 soldiers in America for example, is much more effective than killing 100 apostates in the Yemeni military,” the letters section tells an aspiring jihadist.”

“Hacking Terrorist Websites Commonplace”
by IPT News Jun 3, 2011 at 1:32 pm
SNIPPET: “British intelligence destroyed several pages of al-Qaida’s first edition of Inspire magazine, in one of many instances of Western intelligence sources hacking into jihadi websites, according to Wired.com. However, the issue of disrupting jihadi websites and publications raises questions about the value of cyber attacks, and whether it exposes sensitive intelligence resources.
The case of the al-Qaida’s Inspire magazine illustrates the challenge to intelligence. “The head of the newly formed U.S. Cyber Command, Gen. Keith Alexander, argued that blocking the magazine was a legitimate counterterrorism target and would help protect U.S. troops overseas,” the Washington Post reported. “But the CIA pushed back, arguing that it would expose sources and methods and disrupt an important source of intelligence.”
“The proposal also rekindled a long-standing interagency struggle over whether disrupting a terrorist Web site overseas was a traditional military activity or a covert activity and hence the prerogative of the CIA.”
Although the CIA won out and the proposal was rejected, British intelligence was already hacking the magazine. It took nearly two weeks for al-Qaida operatives to release a corrected version. In the political fallout that followed, House Armed Services Committee Vice Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-Tex) included language in the 2012 defense authorization bill which authorized cyber attacks by the military.
Attacks on jihadi websites are nothing new.”
SNIPPET: The story is also told of how US DoD wanted to launch an attack, but CIA claimed rights to it, and then demurred. All this makes a good story. Not sure I believe most of it, but then who am I, really?

Al-Qaida Issues New Mail Bombing Threat
June 15, 2011
SNIPPET: The FBI has issued a new warning about an al-Qaida-inspired plot to assassinate key government and private sector individuals with mail bombs.
The plot is only aspirational, says a report reviewed by the Investigative Project on Terrorism. But FBI officials have expressed concern about the actions of lone wolf attackers already in the United States.
The threats follow a June 3 video featuring American al-Qaida member Adam Gadahn in which he encourages acts of individual jihad, members of several extremist Web forums posted names of companies and its leaders to target, the FBI warning said. That video appeared initially on the closed al-Qaida web forum Shumukh al-Islam.
The threat has since gone viral, appearing in major forums like Ansar al-Mujahideen and Somali terrorist site Al-Qimmah.
A translation of the text of the threat by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, taken from the original posting, provides more detail on the planned attacks.
The Idea Determine lists of the names of individual actors in the Zionist-Crusader war on our Ummah [nation], from the directors of companies, supporters of the war, and media organizations that support the false propaganda, and the instigating members of Congress, states Shumukh al-Islam participant Yaman Mukhadab. [There will be] a focus only on the most hostile countries, America, Britain, and France.
The list of names includes President Obama, along with key generals, and senior intelligence officials, as well as private counterterrorism experts like IPT Executive Director Steven Emerson, Daniel Pipes, and Yigal Carmon of the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). Preacher John Hagee is identified for his outspoken support for Israel, and Coca-Cola is called proud sponsors of the 2003 Iraq invasion.
The addresses of several branches of the RAND Corp., considered to be the devils workshop by members of jihadi forum Ansar al-Mujahideen, also are listed. The RAND Corporation regularly figures into Islamist conspiracies about the Wests War on Islam, because of its reports about strengthening moderate forms of Islam. One should not underestimate the potential negative impact of RANDs push for moderate Islam, notes American cleric Mohamed El-Moctar El-Shinqiti, because the company is known to have close readership among key American political and military leaders.
Although threats on prominent Americans may not be new, Americas recent rash of strikes on al-Qaida figures has ratcheted up the terrorists need for revenge.
A previous video from Gadahn in March 2010 similarly called for small attacks in the United States, but failed to have any observable significant resonance within the online extremist community, the FBI report noted. However, UBLs death may be creating a wider or more receptive audience for AQ core propaganda messages and be a catalyst for reactions from individuals inspired by the AQ message. The recent killings of prominent al-Qaida leader Fazul Abdullah Mohammed and the reported killing of Ilyas Kashmiri have also elicited calls for revenge.
Notably, the post calls for sending booby-trapped parcels to the residential addresses of dozens of government officials and private individuals.
Al-Qaida has already recommended the use of mail bombs against American targets in the past. $4,200 was the title of November 2010 issue of al-Qaidas Inspire Magazine, highlighting how little it cost for the group to launch major attacks through the mail.

“Happy Birthday Inspire!”
SNIPPET: “Well, it’s been about one year since the American clique at Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula rolled out “Inspire” magazine for an adoring public.
During that time, the project — run by American cleric Anwar Awlaki and American blogger Samir Khan — has captured a lot of the public imagination regarding the nature of the war on terrorism, without producing a lot of clearly quantifiable results.”
SNIPPET: “Is Inspire on hiatus for an editorial reevaluation in light of bin Laden’s withering critique? Are Awlaki and Khan too busy running for their lives to propagandize?”
Latest al-Qaida Magazine Touts Gains and Losses
July 19, 2011
SNIPPET: Victories on the battlefield and fresh martyrs underline al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsulas [AQAP] territorial gains, according to the latest issue of its English-language Inspire magazine. Its cover story is called Sadness, Contentment, and Aspiration.
SNIPPET: The magazine addresses Osama bin Ladens death with both lamentations on the loss of a great leader and congratulations for his achieving the goal of martyrdom. But it pledges that his death will have little effect on the future of the organization.
The news brought us a mixed sentiment of sadness, contentment and aspiration, wrote American jihadist Samir Khan, in the magazines cover article.
Sadness because we lost one of the greatest Islamic revolutionaries - if not, the greatest revolutionary - in modern times. Contentment because we knew that he achieved what Prophet Muhammad always yearned for: shahada[martyrdom]. Aspiration because we remembered our Prophets guarantee that jihad will resume till Judgment Day.
His death is also just one in a chain of leaders al-Qaida has lost, Khan wrote.
Living in the States never made me think twice about the path I was undertaking, although many of the mujahidin leaders were killed such as Abu Layth al-Libi, Abu Khabbab al-Masri, Mullah Dadullah, Abu Musab az-Zarqawi and others. For me and all of those who follow the path correctly, jihad is not for the sake of these commanders and leaders; rather its for the sake of Allah.
