Al-Qaida 'Chef' Threatens US With 'Undetectable' Bombs

Monday, 05 January 2015 11:47 AM EST

The al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula terror group has warned the United States that it has developed “undetectable” bombs that it plans to start using in the near future.

The jihadist faction’s digital magazine Inspire quoted an “AQ Chef” as saying that the group had created the bombs in 2009, while adding that “the brothers in the external operation committee did not give us the green light until recently,” according to Washington’s Top News (WTOP).

The “AQ Chef” also said in the December edition of the magazine that since then they have “developed other bombs that are more effective.”

The unidentified bomb-maker also suggested that previous failed plots against commercial American airplanes and buildings had resulted in the creation of new “undetectable” bombs.

A 20-page section of Inspire titled “A Hidden Bomb” detailed how to build and test such a bomb, WTOP reported.

“For several months, we conducted a number of experiments,” AQ Chef claimed. “As a result we came up with these simple materials that are readily available around the globe, even inside America.

“We spared no effort in simplifying the idea in such we made it ‘another meal prepared in the kitchen’ so that every determined Muslim can prepare.”

The segment also claimed that lone wolves can circumvent U.S. bomb defenses, saying: “Any security system, be it human or mechanical, has weak points through which it can be breached as long as you know its details and mechanism.”

The militant magazine’s editor, Yahya Ibrahim, also alleged that the organization’s bomb-makers have come up with a “unique” recipe “that can easily be prepared at home.”

Ibrahim told Inspire: “The new reality has flipped the coin of war. It has shifted America from an offensive position into a defensive one.

“We no longer hear them speaking of the successes or failures of the battle for the hearts and minds…Instead we find them acknowledging their incapability of preventing lone Jihad attacks on their soil.”

Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, also called AQAP, has a violent reputation worldwide of leading the field in the technology for advanced improvised explosive devices (IEDs), WTOP reported.

But the U.S. has come up with new counter-terrorism detection methods to expose non-metallic explosives, while new tactics have been introduced to prevent AQAP and other terror groups from enlisting recruits and radicalizing lone wolves.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has also been meeting with counter-terrorism officials in several large cities while leading the country’s war against fanatical extremists, WTOP noted.

“I want our reach to go as far as possible,” Johnson said. “If I go to eight major cities, it is possible to reach a large segment of the community that I’m trying to reach, but the alternate message is important.”
