New Terrorist Threat: Bombs Surgically Implanted IN Bodies?

When the underwear bomber story broke, many people were wondering “What next? What’ll be the new twist from here?” And now a possible answer: according to a report, terrorists are going to try to get around body scanners by having bombs surgically implanted inside of bombers’ bodies:

Britain is facing a new Al Qaeda terror threat from suicide ‘body bombers’ with explosives surgically inserted inside them.

Until now, terrorists have attacked airlines, Underground trains and buses by secreting bombs in bags, shoes or underwear to avoid detection.

But an operation by MI5 has uncovered evidence that Al Qaeda is planning a new stage in its terror campaign by inserting ‘surgical bombs’ inside people for the first time.
Security services believe the move has been prompted by the recent introduction at airports of body scanners, which are designed to catch terrorists before they board flights.

It is understood MI5 became aware of the threat after observing increasingly vocal internet ‘chatter’ on Arab websites this year.

The warning comes in the wake of the failed attempt by London-educated Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to blow up an airliner approaching Detroit on Christmas Day.

One security source said: ‘If the terrorists are talking about this, we need to be ready and do all we can to counter the threat.’

The Daily Mail’s report says “male bombers would have the explosive secreted near their appendix or in their buttocks, while females would have the material placed inside their breasts in the same way as figure-enhancing implants.” Not a good sign: this means that, as usual, the bombers are seemingly one step ahead of experts who are trying to get measure in place to counter bombers’ plans.

  1. ¿So what happens if the bomb is a dud?

  2. Of course, there's one flaw to this – either they get a professional surgeon to help, or they do it themselves. And if they do it themselves, they're going to botch it. If they survive that botching, there may be some telltale signs.

    And don't forget the possibility of chemical leaching, and who knows what else. I don't think this will work quite as well as they think it will.

    Of course, with the competency level of the TSA, I guess it really doesn't matter. Sometimes I think someone could cart a warhead on a red ryder and they'd have about an even chance of getting through.

  3. Occasionally when we find ourselves sucked into a reality of just sheer madness for lack of a better term, it helps to back up and get a macrovision of what's going on.

    So the other day I was just chillin', watching TV and letting my mind wander. As usual for that day the programming sucked and I found myself channel surfing. “Click”, the soundbite-view was a woman being violently raped, “click” the next was three plastic surgery freaks from LA bickering about a swimming pool. “click” I landed on that chrisitan network featuring that bizarre clownish woman who's a Tammy-Faye lookalike. [if the Comedy Central is dead, try this act if you want to laugh yourself silly], “click” I landed on a guy stuffing the last of five enormous bowls of chile down his gullet. [Man vs Food] I believe. This last one is just one of many shows now popular in American of fat people stuffing themselves until they puke.

    So I let all this sink in and then I felt a jolt in my midsection. It hit me like lightening.

    We have people willing to have bombs surgically implanted in their bodies and willing to commit suicide in order to get us to notice that they have something they want to tell us. Forget the angry rhetoric on their side for one minute and consider where their anger is born. Gross, disgustingly gross, maddenly horrific spectacles of which our media has become in tiny increments over time [and then life imitates "art" to form a culture], doesn't just stay within our borders.

    Now why why why would they think of us at the infidels? When you get a minute, read the Bible and get the gist of Jesus's messages. Then immediately put it down, walk over to your TV and begin channel surfing. Do not let any lag time occur in between.

    It should be pretty easy to figure out how to stop the “enemy” if we can at first identify it accurately.

  4. Orrr… they could figure out how to make a lot of money, start their own media conglomerate, and plaster the airwaves with whatever they want to say.

    There's no excuse for terrorism. No matter how explainable it is.

  5. [It is understood MI5 became aware of the threat after observing increasingly vocal internet ‘chatter’ on Arab websites this year]–

    This year? Mighty big breech of intelligence if this information hits the press in less than a month don't ya think?

    Yeah, 2 pounds of C4 sewed into some belly fat with a small altimeter actuated detonator would bring down an airliner. That’s not really an new idea. There has been several Doctors involved in Islamic terrorism. I guess we are going to have to be medically x-rayed for air travel.

    Still though, none of this information frightens me away from flying. Odds are still millions to miniscule that I’ll be killed by a terrorist on an airliner. Besides you can’t live forever anyway. What…..you apes want to live forever? I thought you believed in god? Well how the heck are you going to meet god if you don’t die?? Please, quit being wimps. lol

  6. lol

  7. You have discovered my secret agenda. The ballon has burst. The jig is up. The fat lady sang.

    What do I do now?

    I need a cause.

    Goody. I was hoping someone would say this. If the arabs invaded our corn industry and would not leave and when asked to leave our resource alone, instead became increasing hostile and began market warfare, followed by actual warfare, we would say it was terrorism without excuse.

    We do exactly the same with their oil and suddenly it's benevolent, and has an excuse. There are many many forms of terrorizing. One of them is bombing. The thousands more involve many things our oil executives and their friends in the CIA have been doing for decades before al Qaida.

    So we both agree, there is no excuse for ANY form of terrorism whatsoever. Now, refer back to my first post here..

  9. Or, what happens if your flight is delayed and the bomb works?
