Exclusive govt document shows Boston marathon bombers followed Al-Qaeda plans

quote:

A detailed analysis of the bombs used at the Boston Marathon and during a firefight between the suspects and law enforcement shows how closely the bombmakers followed instructions from the digital al Qaeda magazine “Inspire,” according to a government document obtained by NBC News.

The unclassified report from the Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center found that the pipe bombs allegedly thrown from a car by Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev during last Friday’s chase through Watertown, Mass., resembled the design described in “How to Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom,” an article in the first issue of the English-language magazine. At least one of the Watertown bombs used an elbow pipe wrapped in black tape, as discussed in “Inspire.”

“The use of elbow pipes specifically is unique,” states the report, “and rare in other extremist and anarchist literature.”

“How to Build a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom” also provided instructions on how to build bombs with kitchen pressure cookers. The bombs detonated at the marathon on April 15 were constructed from pressure cookers, as was a bomb authorities say the suspects threw at police during the Watertown shootout. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a 26-year-old immigrant of Chechen origin, was killed during the confrontation.

According to the TEDAC analysis, the pressure-cooker bombs also match the “Inspire” designs in their use of spherical shrapnel and gunpowder from fireworks, as well as the possible use of Christmas tree lights as an initiator.

The pipe bombs also used fireworks and spherical shrapnel. Both types of devices apparently used glue to secure the shrapnel, as described in “Inspire.” NBC is not disclosing details that could aid in the construction of a bomb.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who survived the Watertown shootout and was captured last Friday night, has told investigators that he and his brother Tamerlan got bombmaking instructions from “Inspire,” according to law enforcement officials. The TEDAC document, however, notes while the elements of the Boston bombs “use similar components to those described in several issues of ‘Inspire,’” they also diverge from the “Inspire” designs, with different triggers and power sources. A fusing system that used parts from a toy car, say the investigators, does not seem traceable to the magazine.

“Inspire” magazine was launched by al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, al Qaeda’s Yemeni affiliate, in July 2010, and aimed at fomenting jihad among U.S. and other Western Muslims. The publication included messages from radical U.S.–born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and Osama bin Laden, and was edited by U.S.-raised jihadi Samir Khan, a one-time basement blogger in North Carolina who relocated to Yemen. It contained articles on “open source” jihad, urging Westerners to mount “lone wolf” attacks using methods ranging from home-made bombs and forest fires to vehicular homicide. Khan was killed in the same U.S. strike that killed Awlaki on Sept. 30, 2011.

No way. Just a couple of rogue kids who couldn't assimilate and make friends. Lies about terrorist connections, all lies.

The detonator was reported to be of a non-Al Queda design eaarlier tonight, so not off the internet was implied. They used a remote control cars pieces to detonate, which is line of sight versus a cell phone trigger.

Reading a magazine does not equate to having terrorist connections FWIW

I'm pretty sure this isn't new. We've known this since like the Monday after.

NBC released this story today. So if this information has been known since the Monday after that would mean that NBC is right on schedule for them in releasing information which is not supportive of their news narrative.

I personally don't think they acted alone, but this hardly an incriminating smoking gun

I've got a Donald Link book of recipes in the kitchen but that doesn't make me a line cook at Cochon. And I've got a *cough* friend *cough* who has made some pretty impressive water bongs from magazine descriptions, but that doesn't make him part of the cartel.

And the closing line of the excerpt you linked encourages "lone wolf" operations as part of an "open source" jihad.

How are you going to whip up some war fever with posts like this?

They showed Olympic events about a week after they happened.

True.

But reading the magazine and getting the magazine's recipe for making a bomb, making said bomb, and then detonating the bomb in a crowd of innocent people is a bit more than just "reading a magazine," don't you agree?

I think it's more likely, with their proximity to so many places like Lexington, Concord, Boston Harbor, Bunker Hill etc, that they got these bomb plans from a Tea Party function.
