Guides for Tactical Warfare and Assembling a Bombing
A new member of a Bahasa extremist forum posted some links on several English
materials on physical i’dad (jihad preparation) to download. The materials do not originate from
Al Qaeda sources but from non-affiliated Western sources. Last month, a forum member posted
URLs for download on tactical warfare from the books titled “Total Resistance – Swiss Army
Guide to Guerilla Warfare and Underground Operations; “Getaway – Driving Techniques for
Escape and Evasion”; Disguise Techniques – Fool All of the People Some of the Time.
“Running a Ring of Spies”; Spycraft: The Secret History of the CIA’s Spytechs, from
Communism to Al-Qaeda; “Booby Traps” (a manual of the U.S. Army published in 1965).
Those threads are viewed by around 20-40 people. The thread which is viewed the most is the
intelligence material “Running a Ring of Spies”, which is viewed by 42 forum members.
However, none or only a few people reply to the thread, mostly said gratitude to the sender, and
few asked the details on the downloading process. The thread that garnered most reply is booby
traps topic, with 4 replies.
The most-viewed thread in this forum with regards to the manuals is on the topic of how
to make a bomb from your mum’s kitchen, posted by penyebarilmu. It garners 144 views and 6
replies despite it was posted since January 2010. It is unclear whether this person is the same
person running a jihadi blog http://penyebarilmu.wordpress.
