Unedited Abu Suleiman Interview
A couple of days ago, I posted a story about my interview with online jihadist Abu Suleiman Al Nasser. I wanted to present the complete interview, but I didn't want to provide Al Nasser with a free ride as far as distributing his propaganda in clean, edited English.
I arrived at the solution of creating a short Kindle edition, which allows students of jihadism and counterterrorism professionals to read the entire interview uncut in both edited text and the original unedited emails, while requiring anyone who wants to download the piece to provide a billing address and IP information about a device with which to synchronize. You can get the full interview here.
For more about online jihadists, check out J.M. Berger's new book, Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam, on sale everywhere.
