WASHINGTON—Yemen’s al-Qaida of the Arabian Peninsula includes chilling new tips on how to kill Americans in its second edition of the English online magazine Inspire.
The 74-page issue advises would-be militants to open fire “at a crowded restaurant in Washington, D.C., at lunch hour,” in hopes of “knocking out a few government employees.”
Renegade American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki penned two of the articles, according to the SITE Intelligence Group. Awlaki is on a U.S. government kill-or-capture list for his alleged role in the attempted Detroit airliner bombing last Christmas.
Another American, Samir Khan, describes how he went from online jihadist in North Carolina to full-time terrorist in Yemen, in his article, “I Am Proud to be a Traitor to America.”
