A top al-Qaeda bomb-making expert this week has joined his fellow terrorists in publishing information on the World Wide Web, but this time its an Internet magazine instructing readers on how to build bombs and other deadly devices.

"The webmaster of death" is veteran Islamist and explosives maven Abdullah Dhu al-Bajadin, who is considered al-Qaeda's most feared weapons creator. In fact, law enforcement officials have told the Law Enforcement Examiner that al-Bajadin can go into any modern kitchen and within minutes create some type of offensive device.

For example, according to a U.S. counterterrorism expert, al-Bajadin describes the chemistry and recipe for making poisonous anesthetic chloroform, according to SITE Intelligence Group.

"We chose that because the beginner mujahid can prepare it at home using materials that are available in grocery stores and supermarkets," the author wrote in Arabic, according to SITE .

"Al-Bajadin wrote a sort of 'Bomb-Making for Dummies" on the Internet to replace his having to answer online questions about bomb-making from people like lone-wolf terrorists in the U.S. and Europe," said former NYPD bomb squad member, Detective Paul Pirrotta.

In the past, al-Qaeda shared bomb-making information in its Arab affiliate's English-language web site Inspire. The e-zine folded when a U.S. drone attack in Yemen killed publisher and former New Yorker Samir Khan, along with the infamous American Jihadi, Imam Anwar al-Awlaki.

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King (R-NY), said the new Internet bomb-making web site "underscores the growing threat from radicalization within the Muslim-American community and 'lone wolf' terrorism, which I have repeatedly argued pose one of the gravest threats to U.S. national security."

Showing articles he uploaded on Wikipedia Arabic for groups including al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and the Haqqani Network, and individuals such as Attiya Allah and Abu Musab al-Suri, several terrorist organizations are said to be promoting a kind of Wikipedia for terrorists called "Jihadwiki."
