There is already a thread from republican08 about this topic here: Inspire

However, since there is no link or any other information on that thread, I thought to make a new thread with some more info, complete links and download links - mods feel free to close down, if against the rules.

DISCLAIMER: I am in no way supporting any Al Qaeda or other extremists activities. As a matter of fact, I am strongly against any war or violence, especially against religious incited hate (all religions are true). This thread is for information and conspiracy theorists purposes only. Review the below links or download the PDF file on the linked website at your own risk - Viruses suspected in the PDF magazine, planted by US cyber warriors, and I am pretty sure that all links and IP's accessing it are monitored by Counter terrorism agencies.



As the U.S. struggles to manage its efforts to influence opinion about Al Qaeda abroad, Al Qaeda on the Arabian Peninsula has produced its first English-language propaganda magazine. It's called "Inspire," and you can read parts of it below. A U.S. official said early this morning that the magazine appears to be authentic.


Article source: theatlantic.com

Is it really from Al Qaeda, or from the CIA? here is another quote:



The copy was obtained from a private researcher. AQAP had advertised for days that the magazine would appear with the interviews specified in the table of contents. It is possible, although not likely, that the magazine is a fabrication, a production of a Western intelligence agency that wants to undermine Al Qaeda by eroding confidence in its production and distribution networks. The U.S. is engaged in direct net-based warfare with jihadis; this sort of operation would not be too difficult to pull off


In my opinion, the most worrying part about this magazine, is that it is in perfect and well articulated English, with some pretty fancy Graphic design as you would find in every modern magazine. Maybe soon there will be some Burqa Fashion designers advertising on it
. Obviously, the purpose of this magazine seems to be to create more English speaking homegrown terrorists. Al Qaeda's may be evil, crazy and brainwashed, but they are not racists.....

Website with the download link to the original magazine (personally, i have not downloaded it, but there are some screenshots on the website and also on theatlantic.com at link on the top part of this thread): publicintelligence.net

At the risk of alienating myself enormously, I don't necessarily think that describing all members of Al-Qaida as raving lunatics is either helpful, nor true. In order to defeat Al-Qaida and the islamic fundamentalism that has given rise to such militancy, it is integral for the West to understand that the upper echelons of such organizations are composed of men who are both intelligent and articulate. Their rhetoric and propaganda do them no favors as it preaches largely to their unintelligent grassroots supporters, but we would do well to recognize that these are not people with mental deficiencies who are mad like Charlie Manson. If we would look to the cause and root of such militancy, we may stand a far better chance at defeating the enemy than we do at present.

Rivoting! With a title like "May our souls be scarificed for you" I am compelled beyond my wildest imaginiation to read what they have to say...

Not really anything good there. Really bad design though.

Yeap, it may be a bad design, but nevertheless it is the only the "first" edition and might evolve to something much nicer looking in the future. especially if it is funded by some super rich oil extremists

If people knew anything about Al-Qaeda, they would have known that they weren't much different than the Muslim brother hood of Egypt. They didn't even have a name back then, but they were killed, tortured, and imprisoned just because of their belief.

That is when they turned to the only thing they saw, and the only thing that was left for them to use, hence death and destruction.

It the West which created this monster in the name of Middle East interests.

I can bet Muslim Brotherhood will eventually follow Al-Qaeda's footsteps, when realizing you can't negotiate with terrorists, (hence the Western Empire).

Doesn't matter because the message it is sending.

Pure ignorance.

Looks like the CIA guys got bored and decided to create this piece of propaganda.

It's laughable and sounds more like a totally western perspective on terrorism.

That must have been easy to do... I mean for once the CIA didn't have to rely on their Arabic translator.

LOL, I would love to see an Arabic to English translation of an English magazine lol.

English - "The end of Zionist regime", English translation -"wipe out Israel"

hahahha

The funniest part is, this magazine poped out just in time when New Yorkers are asking the government about 9/11, and this magazine reaffirms the government's position that it was Al-Qaeda ^^

So cute.

I only had to read the BS to believe it. I'm probably tapped on their system now, puzzzz

I can't believe I'm gonna be in the terrorist list because I read a boring magazine with Western flavor and spices lol

certainly a possibility, but who can tell for sure?

it is quite suspecting though, that publicintelligence.org did not mention how they obtained the magazine only from a "private researcher"...strange the "private researcher" gave it out to a not well known website

hey, don't shoot the messenger please. I do not know if it was real extremists or CIA who made this.... although this propaganda stuff does look like al qaeda style the masses gets feed everyday via news ("oh look al qaeda made another non sense call for martyrdom")

proof is, that everyday people are ready to blow themselves up in middle east, so it must be some crazy correspondences they are reading and believing, such as this magazine?

I would call BS on this one, probably made by the CIA. The layout looks too complex (Its not like their competing) for any Al-Qaeda member to even attempt to create (should be brief, simple layout and straight to the point) not some 'Cosmopolitan' type of layout LOL. And the make bombs in your kitchen/Sacrifice ourselves BS!!..... these guys are clearly taking a piss, Al-Qaeda are not the dumbest people around as we already know. Just some piece of propaganda created to cause more fear of something that probably no longer exists. Btw they would have convinced us if they used more verses from the Quran and if it was written in Arabic!

Look I have no doubts that AQ is in america, but right now it is just a build up of illegal aliens.

There will be a day of reckoning, but this publication is garbage and if anyone falls for it I don't feel sorry for them.

everyone needs to agree though that the maker has some sense of humor "make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom"

well yeah the al qaeda top people might be intelligent, but nevertheless the people who blow themselves up, of which you hear nearly everyday must be reading some kind of brainwash material. Who has a proof that it is not sort of this magazine and writing in this magazine, which those "martyrs" are reading?

Came in here half expecting to see that it was the magazine Soldier of Fortune. I'm pretty much convinced that's all these al Qaeda dudes are...selling out to the highest bidder, which in some cases might be CIA/MI6/ISI or whoever pays them, and that's probably the source of this too. Sure doesn't seem like it's something a real "terrorist organization" concerned about secrecy would be doing, but who knows.

I dont think al qaeda cares about secrecy much... secrecy about their hiding place, yes. Secrecy about their ideology? no
