It would be funny if it were not so frightening: British spies with MI5 say Al Queda is outfitting female suicide bombers with explosive breast implants :
The shocking new Al Qaeda tactic involves radical doctors inserting the explosives in women’s breasts during plastic surgery — making them “virtually impossible to detect by the usual airport scanning machines.
“It is believed the doctors have been trained at some of Britain’s leading teaching hospitals before returning to their own countries to perform the surgical procedures.
After Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab came close to blowing up a U.S. airliner over Detroit on Christmas, MI5 picked up chatter from Pakistan and Yemen alluding to the creation of lethal breast implants. The threat was investigated, and it was determined that this approach is “one that can circumvent our defense.” Apparently a mere five ounces of PETN can bring down an airplane.
