Terror Cleric Anwar al-Awlaki managed to recruit a large number of Western youth via the internet, a strategy al-Qaeda had been pursuing during the past 10 years using the successful 9/11 attacks as a rallying point.

WASHINGTON – The killing of American-born Al Qaeda preacher Anwar al-Awlaki may weaken the Yemen branch's ability to attack the United States, but the only way to eliminate the threat is to take out its Yemen leaders, according to a new report by a top Army counterterrorism center.
Terror chief Nasir al-Wahayshi, who used to work for Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan, and other key figures are the real secret to the group's survival, and are equally committed to attacks on the U.S. homeland. A year in the making and written before Friday's drone strike that killed al-Awlaki and fellow U.S.-born propagandist Samir Khan, the report also suggests that its leaders' strength is key to the group's end.
"Removing these leaders from the battlefield ... would rapidly bring about the group's defeat," according to the study, made available exclusively to The Associated Press. Al-Wahayshi was in charge when the group launched its first official attack, the dual suicide bombing of U.S. oil facilities in Yemen in 2006.
UK spies hack al-Qaeda Website and replace bomb info with cupcake recipes. The cyber offensive took place last year when the English language magazine called Inspire, aimed at Muslims in the West, was launched by Samir Khan and supporters of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). British intelligence officers based at the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), the state eavesdropping service, attacked the 67-page magazine, leaving most of it garbled, British newspapers said.
The Washington Post reported that the British action followed a dispute between the CIA and the newly formed U.S. Cyber Command. The cyber unit had wanted to block the al Qaeda magazine but the CIA, which had countered such an attack would expose sources and intelligence methods, won the debate and declined to allow an attack on Samir Khan's Inspire. The paper reported that it took almost two weeks for AQAP to post a corrected version of the magazine after it had been sabotaged.
