Al Qaeda Releases English Magazine Online

Ad Feedback

Al Qaeda has released an online magazine aimed at English-speaking jihadists.

The first edition of "Inspire" magazine includes 67 pages of photos and text promoting violent attacks against the West. One article gives step-by-step instructions on making a bomb.

Contributors to the magazine include Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and others with generic names like "AQ Chef" and "Terrorist."

"Inspire" is the brainchild of al Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki -- the American-born jihadist who's recently been linked to several major terrorist plots on U.S. soil.

Some intelligence officials believe al-Awlaki's influence has surpassed bin Laden's because he speaks fluent English and can reach young Western Muslims.

The magazine is imprinted with the mark of the al Qaeda branch in Yemen, where al-Awlaki is based.
