The latest intell coming from the UK indicates Al Qaeda has developed another plan to blow up airplanes. This technique is virtually undetectable and cannot be uncovered during security screening.
- Women suicide bombers are having breast augmentation which includes a powerful explosive in the implant. The lethal explosive is known as PETN. It is inserted into plastic shapes during the surgery before the breast is sewn up.
It has also been revealed that male suicide bombers are having the same type of implants placed in their buttocks.
- Experts say as little as 5 oz of this explosive could blow a significant hole in the skin of a plane causing it to crash.
The enemy is becoming more resourceful and our defenses are insufficient to deal with them.
What is the solution? Our full body scanners are not capable of detecting these explosives. Can they detect implants at all? That's unknown.
Should we refuse to allow women with implants from boarding our planes? How about the men? How do we screen them?
Should we assign seats to those who fit a particular profile? Should we only allow them to sit in aisle seats?
- Are we going to wind up with armed guards standing and watching every passenger during the entire flight?
The first time one succeeds in taking down a plane our airline industry will be paralyzed. Another major industry in our country is at risk for financial decimation.(Source)
