I just feel it bears repeating that a relatively recent issue of Al-Qaeda’s ‘Inspire Magazine specifically tells muslim readers to attack trains as opposed to aircraft as they are easier targets and tells them how. I have been opposed on principle to linking to Inspire or reproducing their material directly but here is a link to an NBC News piece on this issue. No special reason why I make this post at this time. Just call it a whim.
In the summer 2010 issue, headlines invited readers to check out an “Exclusive Interview with Shaykh Abu Basir.” Another advertised a piece about “Mujahideen 101.” At the bottom of the cover: “What to Expect in Jihad.”
Other articles have offered blueprints for destroying buildings and carrying out attacks against cars, trains and malls — particularly small operations to unnerve the enemy because “hitting him in his backyard drives him crazy.”
