WaPo Wonders if AQAP's Inspire Magazine Will Continue Post Awlaki?
The last edition of Inspire magazine teased the jihadi readers with the promise of an upcoming article by Anwar al-Awlaki. Given that al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula's magazine was the brain child of Samir Khan -- who was killed along with Awlaki in last week's strike -- it's an interesting question:
Samir Khan, another American who was killed in last week’s strike, functioned as editor and publisher of Inspire. It’s not clear whether Khan had enough support staff to carry on.I'm guessing that someone will take up Samir's slack. And if I had to merit a guess, it would be that the new editor won't be physically present in Yemen.
