Printer bombs planted on two cargo flights last month cost only a few thousand dollars and were intended to affect the American economy, according to a newly published Al Qaeda-affiliated magazine.
The attempt was called "Operation Hemorrhage," boasted the magazine, and the entire plot cost al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, only $4,200.
Yesterday, a special edition of Inspire magazine -- an English-language propaganda publication produced by AQAP -- gave a detailed description of how the attempted attack was conceived and produced.
"Two Nokia mobiles, $150 each, two HP printers, $300 each, plus shipping, transportation and other miscellaneous expenses add up to a total bill of $4,200," one article said. "That is all that Operation Hemorrhage cost us. In terms of time, it took us three months to plan and execute the operation from beginning to end."
The magazine also revealed the attack was not meant to kill more than the plane's pilot and co-pilot, and was meant to force the U.S. government to spend billions of dollars on preventive security screening measures....

...to heck with water boarding, start dipping them in 55 gallon drums of pigs blood. Head first.
Death by a thousand cuts? Ha! We’re doing THAT to ourselves!
Obama and Napolitano, Al Qaeda compliant!
They don't have to. it has been given to them already.
Why shouldn't they? It's allegedly done in response to the 'underwear bomber'.
Since they're already hiding bombs in their anal cavity, are you ready for that search?
So it was a cheap failure instead of an expensive failure.
Not a Chance. Reagan personified America. He was a Country Man. The left made fun of him at Iceland and he kicked ass. The left is a bunch of queer weirdos that want their own Nation to falter, F-em.
I guess you don't remember 1983
When they attacked us for having troops in their lands under Reagan, Reagan decided to pull those troops out. He didn't go on 'nation building' orgy to enforce our 'right' to use our soldiers to protect foreign kings.
July 28, 2008 - Insurgents increasingly use female bombers because their billowing, black robes easily hide explosives and they are less likely to be searched.
But let’s not go profiling muslims. Hell no we might actually catch a few terrorists.
Mohammed never met Americans
You lose MoFo.
Time to start focusing on the Islamists (political Islam, Sharia Law, jihad advocates) here in the U.S.
Our own version of a thousand cuts, cut the freedoms of our enemies living here.
How to tell the difference between Muslim and Islamist? The ones who squawk are the Islamists.
Right, he didn't continue expose our troops to attack for no good goddamned reason, and bombed Gaddafi's house instead.
They got the message, as did that commie scumbag Castro after Grenada.
Hezbollah ≠ Gaddafi.
The 1986 bombing of Libya was in response to saber rattling. We sent a carrier off their coast, shot down two of their fighters, they bombed a German disco that U.S. servicemen frequented, so we bombed Libya. They retaliated in several ways, most notably the Lockerbie bombing.
In the case of the retreat from Lebanon, we bombarded some goat covered hills with an Iowa class battleship and called it a day.
Are you trying to make the point that Reagan was weak for taking our troops out of harms way after Beirut?
Good thing for them, that’s what the federal government, and state governments to a lesser extent, is doing now.
Take some freedom here, take some liberty there. Pretty soon, you got an unfree police state. But, the bleating sheep wanted to be made “safe” and have all risk removed from life.
The sheep deserve to be the slaves they are.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
No, I make the point that he was wise.
