Boston Marathon terrorists learned to construct pressure cooker bombs from Al Qaeda publication, INSPIRE.

“An al Qaeda magazine containing bomb-making instructions helped the Boston Marathon bombers construct the deadly explosive devices that killed three people and wounded more than 180, according to a U.S. official close to the ongoing investigation.
The official confirmed that the disclosure about how the pressure cooker bombs were built came during hospital room exchanges between investigators and wounded bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev….
…Tsarnaev said the English-language terrorist magazine Inspire provided details on the pressure cooker bombs, according to the official. The official commented after NBC News and Fox News Channel reported the detail….
… The Inspire article was contained in a section titled ‘Open Source Jihad: Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom.’
The report said jihadists in the United States and Europe should work inside those regions and copy the attacks of Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter, and Faisal Shahzad, the Islamist attacker and failed Times Square bomber.
Kitchen-made bombs can be constructed to avoid detection by bomb-sniffing dogs and also do not raise suspicions of security services.
The pressurized cooker is the most effective method,’ the article said. ‘Glue shrapnel to the inside of the pressurized cooker then fill the cooker with inflammable material.’…”
