A popular website that hosted more than 70,000 bloggers was shut
down suddenly last week after the FBI informed its chief technology officer
that the site contained hit lists, bomb-making documents and links to
Al Qaeda materials, it was reported on Monday.
A young North Carolina man who has moved to Yemen appears
to be the editor-in-chief of a flashy new Al Qaeda magazine that
features bomb-making instructions and an article by Usama bin
Laden, U.S. officials said Monday.
Samir Khan, a 24-year-old American citizen who left the country
last October, is believed to be the top editor of Inspire, a newly
launched online magazine that seeks to recruit members of
Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula – the notorious terror group's
Yemeni branch that is linked to the attempted bombing of a
Detroit-bound U.S. flight last Christmas.
The 67-page online publication, written in colloquial English and
launched last month, features flashy graphics and punchy headlines
like "Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom,” as well an article
on global warming said to be written by Bin Laden.
