(SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE) (04-10) 08:41 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- An al Qaeda magazine containing a photo of a people-mover train at San Francisco International Airport - along with a caption urging readers to "assemble your bomb" - has set off alarms on Capitol Hill as the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings approaches.
Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Dublin, told a homeland security hearing Wednesday that he was "disturbed" by the English-language spring edition of the al Qaeda publication Inspire, which features a darkened photo of a lone young man aboard what the congressman said had been identified as "a tram in San Francisco's international airport."
Printed with the photo, Swalwell noted, was a caption reading, "For how long will you live in tension? Instead of just sitting, having no solution, simply stand up. Pack your tools of destruction. Assemble your bomb, ready for detonation."
