WASHINGTON — Yemen's al-Qaida of the Arabian Peninsula is offering chilling magazine tips to would-be militants on how to kill Americans.
"A random hit at a crowded restaurant in Washington, D.C. at lunch . . . might end up knocking out a few government employees," writes one of the authors in the second edition of the group's online, English-language magazine, according to the private SITE Intelligence Group.
The SITE group says it studies, tracks and analyzes the global jihadist network and terrorism financing.
The article in the 74-page October issue of Inspire
, launched in July, came just in time for the 10th anniversary of the USS Cole
bombing. It shows the group "is not under significant pressure," says Brookings Institution terror expert Bruce Riedel.
