A source is reporting to media that the bombs used in the Boston Marathon Bombings were what is called a “Pressure Cooker Bomb“. We first heard of these type of bombs in and 2010 Al-Qaeda ‘Inspire’ magazine article: “How to Make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom”
Its tag-line is “Inspire the Believers” and its first front page features a quotation by the radical Yemeni-American cleric, Anwar al-Awlaki: “May our souls be sacrificed for you”.
The full magazine is not yet online, but the contents page offers messages from both Osama bin Laden and his second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahiri. It also advertises a piece by Awlaki entitled: “Shaykh Anwar’s message to the American people and Muslims in the West”.
Other articles include a question-and-answer session with the leader of AQAP, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, also known by his nom de guerre, Abu Basir, and a tantalising piece offering a “detailed yet short, easy-to-read manual on how to make a bomb using ingredients found in a kitchen”.
It says the title comes from a Koranic verse “Inspire the believers to fight”. “It is jihad that gives this nation life,” its Letter from the Editor states. “We survive through jihad and perish without it.”
