Publishing powerhouse al-Qaeda has launched an English online magazine called Inspire, replete with all the bomb-making instructions and jihad-recruiting propaganda that traditional print journalism has traditionally shunned. Inspire also contains a piece by radical American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, whose assassination President Obama recently requested. It’s called “May Our Souls be Sacrificed for You,” but the body of the article was left out of the magazine obtained by authorities. Still, judging by the title alone, though al-Awlaki may be a skilled rhetorician, it sounds like he may be a bit of an overripe prose stylist.
According to the Daily Mail, “Tuesday's launch did not go smoothly. The magazine was 67 pages long, but all but the first three pages were just garbled computer code, according to SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadist websites and obtained a copy of the magazine.” Sixty-seven pages is thin, even for a July issue. We’ll hold out for the iPad app.
