A bit of late blogging on this one. It is without doubt al Qaeda's most insidious plot to date. Apparently the next itteration of suicide bombs in the sky will not be exploding underwear. In order to defeat full body scans rapidly being put in place after the Undiebomber, al Qaeda is planning to implant PETN into . . . breast implants. The implants would be detonated when the bomber uses "a hypodermic syringe to inject TATP (Triacetone Triperoxide) through their skin into the explosives sachet."
It is one thing for these most amoral of al Qaeda terrorists to seek to use our Western freedoms against us. It is an order of magnitude greater when al Qaeda seeks to corrupt one of the most benign, trusted and beloved symbols of our society - a really primo rack. Anyone who thinks our service men - and at least a few of the service women - are out on freedom's fronteir fighting for just mom and apple pie is missing two of the prime motivators. Oh the humanity . . .
