Al Qaeda magazine praises boston bombings

New evidence today that the Boston bombing is already becoming a key recruiting tool for Al Qaeda. The terror plot is front and center in the latest issue of Al Qaeda's English language magazine, Inspire.

The magazine praises the Tsarnaev brothers as heroes and encourages readers in the United States to follow their example.

As it says on page 17:

"The Boston Bombings have uncovered the capabilities of the Muslim youth, they have revealed the power of a Lone Jihad operation."

The magazine also highlights the attack in London and other recent lone-wolf type terror incidents.

OutFront tonight: Tim Clemente is a Former FBI agent in counterterrorism and Mitch Silber is the former Director of the NYPD Intelligence Division's Analytic and Cyber Units.
