Inspire, Al Qaeda's Magazine, and the Tsarnaev Brothers

Friday, April 26, 2013


This week Dzhokhar Tsarnaev told law enforcement agents that he and his brother learned how to make their homemade bombs from Inspire, the English-language magazine of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Bob talks to JM Berger about the magazine, which has gone from being a late-night punchline to something much more terrifying.

"Inspire" may contain typos and not conform to the AP Style book like perhaps using the phrase Illegal immigrant (the horror) but so what?

If "Inspire" didn't inspire the Brothers Tsarnaev then what did, besides of course the oppressive ordeal of living in that right-wing conservative ignorant hillbilly backwater called Cambridge, Massachusettes?
