Boobie Bombers: Explosive Implants Possible.

Thu Feb 04, 2010 2:29 pm

Gates said the possibility of another major attack by July is very possible. The idea of going to work on a long haul flight and admiring the view that could possibly end my life is alarming.  eyepopping 

Quote:

Agents for Britain's MI5 intelligence service have discovered that Muslim doctors trained at some of Britain's leading teaching hospitals have returned to their own countries to fit surgical implants filled with explosives...

What I find alarming is that well educated people can be indoctrinated so much that they're willing to participate in schemes like this.

Don't be ridiculous. They'll just start x-raying every passenger.

Unacceptable. The dose of radiation is too high. And reading an X-ray takes years of specialized training.

It's come down to it: either fly or don't fly. But if they start demanding that I get exposed to high-dose ionizing radiation to fly, I won't be flying. X-rays are for medicine and they are to be used SPARINGLY.

Guess what: there IS no good screening test for this.

The options are:
1) Ban all civil aviation permanently.
2) Give up and relax security standards and let the buyer beware
3) Engage in a fruitless and money-wasting attempt to screen passengers with increasingly invasive tests.

It's about time that citizens took to the streets about this. Started writing letters. This needs to be an election issue: TSA must go or elected officials go. And if the new batch don't get rid of the TSA, then they go. When is enough going to be enough?

Yeah, its high but a special low dose x-ray will be developed. Most doctors order CT and x ray's like candy anyway. Patients have no idea. Heck, most x ray techs forgo the protection for some procedures.

As for reading x-rays... you could teach an 8 hour class to any decent person and show them how to take and read a simple chest x-ray.

Why is anybody surprised?

Drug runners have been surgically implanting packets in animals for years. There isn't a lot of difference between a packet of heroin and one filled with RDX.

As far as those full body scanners, anybody can defeat them. The trick is a part of the body called the anus. Convict have been useing it as a clandestine storage pouch for years.

I totally believe it. In college, I fooled around with a girl who could fit a Toshiba Bombbeat radio stuffed with PETN in each of her breasts. It was confusing. All that time I thought that breasts could never be too big to be hot. Yep...  

Actually, wouldn't there be some sort of explosive residue on either their person or their carry-on luggage? You still need something to start the PETN boobie bomb.

They are much more dangerous than you'd think. Motor boating anything bigger than a C cup could cause suffocation or death. Yes I had a few near death experiences

Oh great:

Quote:

Taking a trick from the narcotics trade - which has long smuggled drugs in body cavities - Asieri had a pound of high explosives, plus a detonator inserted in his rectum.

Does anyone else see an eerie connection to the "Sexual Confusion in Afghanistan" thread?  

It looks like Al Qaeda will just need to go to the badlands of Afghanistan and there they'll find a large number of "bottoms" who are already well-trained for the mission.   

It'd seem to get the most effect the bomber would want to get their pelvis out of the line of fire, so as I said above, when a dude stops in front of you and grabs his ankles he isn't being friendly! 

Maybe instead of just a bomb, they'll shove some sort of projectile up there to defeat any retarding action due to the flapping of the butt cheeks?

I remember Fox's Nip and Tuck show when girls from Columbia were going through breast reduction surgery then a drug dealer shows up for the removed implant during surgery. This is not new.

Richard Reid was American and the would-be bottle-bombers were British.

My point about profiling isn't that it's wrong, it's that it's ineffective. It's just too easy to find a brainwashable white dude and give him a fake identity of "Albert Rosenberg" from Brooklyn.
