The Inspire Paperboy Missed My PorchJudging from the keywords bringing people to the site from Google, many of you are wondering where is the latest issue of Inspire Magazine from Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula with its presumed cover story on the death of Osama bin Laden.
Like you, I'm waiting eagerly. Not because I love its content especially, but because I have a feature piece teed up to run when it comes out, which focuses on how the much-touted magazine is heavily derivative of jihadi media from years gone by.
Odds are that Anwar Awlaki's close call with a drone in early May has set things back. Perhaps the laptop with Samir Khan's pirated copy of Adobe Illustrator was destroyed in the strike. I suppose we'd have heard about it by now if Khan himself was attached to the destroyed laptop.
Anyway, you can follow me on Twitter or RSS, and I promise I will tell you as soon as it arrives.

Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post
