SNIPPET: “Note to Rita and Yigal: time to get serious about reading your log files””

SNIPPET: “The second issue of the English-language jihadi magazine Inspire is out. Dina Temple-Raston, Jarret Brachman and Memri have already made some initial observations, but Ill throw in my own for what theyre worth.
For a start, the second issue confirms that the magazine is produced out of Yemen by Samir Khan, the online propagandist who was based in the United States until October 2009. As with the first issue, the magazine contains a mix of original material and reprints of older texts by Bin Ladin, Abu Dujana al-Khurasani, Abu Musab al-Suri and others. Most of the new stuff is ostensibly written by Samir Khan himself, but there are a couple of new pieces by al-Awlaki as well. There are also numerous quotes from Western media, including several about the first issue of Inspire. “
SNIPPET: “Perhaps most interesting are the advice on how to avoid detection:
Do not travel abroad for jihad act on US soil instead.
Do not use mobile phones and the Internet for any jihad-related communication if you have to, use coded language and encryption tools.
If you are clean stay clean do not interact with other activists.
Do not access jihadi websites get your jihadi propaganda fix from anti-jihadi monitoring sites such as MEMRI and SITE.”
