Gee, go figure.

Al-Qaida once used its online magazine, “Inspire,” to recommend bomb-makers use “pressurized cookers” to help construct homemade bombs suited for “crowded areas.”

On Tuesday, The Drudge Report resurfaced a 2010 CNN article revealing al-Qaida’s recommendations for would-be terrorists.

CNN reported then:

An idea in the first edition, “Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom,” is touched on again.

“The pressurized cooker should be placed in crowded areas and left to blow up. More than one of these could be planted to explode at the same time. However, keep in mind that the range of the shrapnel in this operation is short range so the pressurized cooker or pipe should be placed close to the intended targets and should not be concealed from them by barriers such as walls.”
