A guide recently posted to the military manuals sections of a password-protected al-Qaeda affiliated forum, instructs in the use of acetone peroxide in a suicidal operation, a substance which was allegedly used in bombings in London, Casablanca, and Palestinian Territories. The author advises that acetone peroxide is most expedient and ?very important? for the suicide bombers, as it may be acquired without raising suspicion and can be very effective in small quantities. Further, in describing one method of its use, the author states that the final step in the substances preparation may be done on site, at ?maybe a Western embassy of a consulate,? where following the expected detonation, ?we continue the rest of our lives in paradise, Allah willing.?
