Al-Qaida issues major new mail bombing threat
The Investigative Project on Terrorism is reporting that a major jihadi web forum has issued a new mail-bombing threat against Western government, industry, and media figures. Those threatened include the President and major intel figures, as well as the RAND corporation, Halliburton, and others. Private counterterrorism experts like Daniel Pipes, Yigal Carmon of MEMRI, and Steve Emerson have also been targeted.
AQ has successfully used difficult to trace bomb materials in the past, heightening concern the threat might be acted upon. An FBI report issued about the threats also shows concern about lone wolf terrorists.
