LAS VEGAS, NV – Not everything that happens in Vegas will stay in Vegas if the wild and crazy guys of Al Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula get their way.
They may look like illiterate terrorists, but they have western marketing savvy, as can be seen in the latest edition of their online terror magazine. The English-language version, naturally.
In addition to the usual jihadi jibber-jabber about how to make a bomb out of your mom’s pressure cooker, and how to turn your dad’s ride into a car bomb, they have targets for those dandy do-it-yourself explosive devices, like Las Vegas casinos, New York’s Times Square, and oil tankers, like those that sail in and out of the port of Houston every day.
But don’t go away, there’s more.
Foreign Policy says one of its reporters in Syria found a laptop belonging to a fighter with the Islamic State, or ISIS.
The reporter says a search turned up more than 35,000 hidden files.
Some of those documents contained instructions on how to make deadly bio-weapons like bubonic plague, the stuff that killed around 25 million people in the 14th century.
Remember Nidal Hassan? He’s the psycho Army psychiatrist sentenced to death for committing "workplace violence” when he killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded 32 others at Fort Hood in 2009.
Well, Hassan has asked Isis leader Al “Big Daddy” Baghdadi to make him a citizen of Islamic State.
We know some military families who hope it’s “postmortem.”
