US Officials: Al Qaeda "Imploding"
Plus: Al Qaeda Now Using Codewords Lifted from... World of Warcraft and Dungeons & Dragons?!!?

Just like the controlled demolition of WTC 7.

But I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

Dell Dailey, the US State Department's co-ordinator for counter-terrorism, says the terrorist group's violent ways do not "resonate" with Muslims - especially with an increasing number falling victim to suicide attacks.

Suicide blasts are reportedly killing more Muslims than non-Muslims, especially in Iraq, where support for the terror group is said to be diminishing.

"Absolutely it's imploding. It's imploding because it's not a message that resonates with a lot of Muslims," Mr Dailey said.

Terrorists groups like Hizbollah and Hamas are proving more attractive because they are involved in social services, according to under-secretary of state James Glassman.

Now for the weird stuff

Speaking at the Director of National Intelligence Open Source Conference in Washington, Dr Dwight Toavs provided an example of how a plot to blow up the White House could be planned within World Of Warcraft.

Dr Toavs, who is a professor at the Pentagon-funded National Defence University, said the game's jargon could provide a disguise for such a plot.

For example, in a fictional scenario, terms such as "Dragon Fire spell" might indicate a particular weapon and "110 Gold and 234 Silver" may refer to how the online plan relates to real-life geography and targets.

Below-- the crack research team at AoSHQ has uncovered a new jihadist training film demonstrating the use of the new codephrases in a simulated attack.
