Operation Cupcake: British Intelligence Replaced Al Qaeda’s Online Bomb Making Guide With Recipes

Taking on Al Qaeda has been an arduous, draining task for our nation and for our allies, but who’s to say you can’t have a little bit of light-hearted fun while ridding the world of terrorists who’d like to see us all someday annihilated?

Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service (known also as “MI6″) and The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) recently struck against Al Qaeda’s online magazine by replacing instructions for making a homemade bomb “in the Kitchen of your Mom” – the magazine, as you can tell, targets impressionable teens… or perhaps middle-aged people who don’t get out much – with garbled code that, when sorted out, turns out to be a cupcake recipe originally published by Ellen Degeneres‘ talk show.
Hackers also removed articles by former Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, his colleague Ayman al-Zawahiri, as well as a piece about “What to expect in Jihad.”

Al Qaeda was eventually able to reissue the magazine.
