The al-Qaida magazine said to be edited by Charlotte blogger

A former Central Piedmont Community College student who started a blog that promoted his jihadist views is thought to be the top editor of Inspire, an online magazine designed as a recruiting tool for al-Qaida, the Observer's Jim Morrill reports today.

Intelligence sources told national news organizations that they believe Samir Khan, thought to be about 24, edits Inspire. Attempts to reach Khan on Tuesday were unsuccessful.

The website for Public Intelligence -- which describes itself as "an international consortium of independent researchers who wish to aggregate and defend public information while maintaining its accessibility around the globe" -- posted what it says is an issue of Inspire. The authenticity of the document, the site warns, "should be deeply scrutinized."

Muslim nutbagz would understandably find fertile ground here enjoying full protection by the moohammed loving soft pc crowd and media censors although the WH called them out as racist for attacking Uganda. The QC more lib than the WH? wow ...no wonder the DNC convention would be a hit in 2012.
