Jihadist Attacks and Plots 2010

As always, Stratfor Global Intelligence blows the doors off of all competition in the News and/or Analysis business.

The first chart will link you up to the full analysis, they do have some free stuff which I mooched for years, you may have to register or fool around some to get this story.

The second chart will link you to a much larger version of the chart that you can actually read.




 The distinction between Core, Franchise and Grassroots attacks is interesting to me.

Basically core is al Qaeda itself, Franchise groups are those that have some loose affiliation and/or allegiance to al Qaeda, and Grassroots are individual people who have been inspired by al Qaeda and have taken matters into their own hands.


Make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom?

To begin with, I'm still not entirely certain of what works and what doesn't with regards to the free stuff at Stratfor.

I hope this works ... you might have to fool around with something.

I've created a link from the photo below to Stratfor's latest article regarding Inspire Magazine, the al Qaeda english language jihadist magazine.

If I've said it once, I've said it a million times, "There's a magazine out there for everybody".

As I have also said before, I subscribe to Stratfor.

I don't even know what it costs anymore, mostly because I'm afraid to.

Still, as far as I'm concerned, Stratfor is the single best site in the world for a "news junkie".




The “Open Source Jihad” section contained a photograph of the U.S. Capitol building with a Christmas tree in the foreground on the first page.  

The “What to Expect in Jihad” section featured a graphic of a sticky note with a to-do listreading: buy handguns, make a bomb in mom’s kitchen, blow up Times Square and “pull off Mumbai near Whitehouse ‘till martyrdom.”  

This section also had a graphic of an envelope marked with the word “Anthrax.”

The photograph of the U.S. Capitol, followed by a reference to an armed assault directed against soft targets near the White House (and the anthrax envelope), will certainly raise some eyebrows in Washington — especially since the Open Source Jihad section of the second edition of Inspire had a photo of the Chicago skyline, and the subsequent plot involving explosive devices hidden in printer cartridges were in packages sent to Chicago.


Don't bother running out, I already checked Barnes and Noble ..... no luck.

Must've gone like hotcakes.
