According to Israeli intelligence sources, the name of the Boston
bomber is Abdulrahman Ali Alharbi and he is a member of Al-Qaeda.
Well we will see, won't we?
Suspicion is redoubled by the fact that the type of bomb used was one that Al-Qaeda has used for years and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has known about their use by terrorists since at least 2004.
“The pressurized cooker is the most effective method,” said an article in the first issue of al-Qaida’s magazine, Inspire, published in July 2010.
The English-language magazine is published online, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
“Glue shrapnel to the inside of the pressurized cooker then fill the cooker with inflammable material,” the article said. A small light bulb can be used as a detonator, according to the al-Qaida article.
The report continued: “Place the device in a crowded area. Camouflage the device with something that would not hinder the shrapnel such as cardboard.”
“You need to also include shrapnel,” the article said, according to the Free Beacon. “The best shrapnel are the spherical shaped ones.”
Also, “sniffing dogs are not trained to recognize them as bomb-making ingredients,” the article said.
“In one or two days the bomb could be ready to kill at least 10 people,” the article said. “In a month you may make a bigger and more lethal bomb that could kill tens of people.”
But don't let's permit any islamophobia to creep in here.
