“Jihad Vault: The Best of the Pest”
SNIPPET: “It’s a directory of blog posts (from “inshallahshaheed”) that I grabbed over the years, as the little one grew into full ehadihood. Whether we like it or not, Samir Khan’s work was pioneering and pivotal in the early development of an American Salafi-jihadi community. This, despite the fact that it was mostly produced in his parent’s basement.”

DHS Warning on Pressure Cooker IEDs
Pressure Cookers as IED Components
(U//FOUO) Rudimentary improvised explosive devices (IEDs) using pressure cookers to contain the initiator, switch, and explosive charge (typically ammonium nitrate or RDX) frequently have been used in Afghanistan, India, Nepal, and Pakistan. Pressure cookers are common in these countries, and their presence probably would not seem out of place or suspicious to passersby or authorities. Because they are less common in the United States, the presence of a pressure cooker in an unusual location such as a building lobby or busy street corner should be treated as suspicious.[snip]
One of these was used in the May 2010 attack in Times Square
Thank you AuntB for the info.

Most of their time was spent on terrorist training and learning from Awlaki and his advisors about the precepts of jihad and Islam. Intelligence officials believe that "hundreds" of American and European converts to Islam, along with other indigenous Muslims from Islamic countries, have trained with Awlaki, making many of them "ticking time bombs."" SNIPPET: "Intelligence gathered last year from Yemeni authorities and from debriefings with several American converts who returned to the United States after training with Awlaki, helped narrow Awlaki's location to a 100 square mile area." SNIPPET: "For example, he had an ex-wife living in Ireland..."
