Al-Qaida launches English-language e-zine

WASHINGTON, July 1 (UPI) -- Al-Qaida launched what it says is the organization's first English-language online magazine, which observers say could be used to recruit U.S.-born terrorists.

SITE Intelligence Group, an organization based in Maryland that tracks terror groups, said the e-zine "Inspire" was posted on radical Web sites earlier this week, CNN reported Thursday.


The magazine's debut apparently did not go smoothly, SITE said. Only three pages of what was touted as a 67-page magazine appeared online and a fourth page displayed only garbled images.

The table of contents include an article called "Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom." The magazine also indicated it would have an article written by fugitive U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who is linked to an attempted Christmas Day bombing of an airplane bound for Detroit.
