Unfortunately the underground armament business is doing well now....only with an investigation , and that is being done, can they know the hands which these missles travel before their ultimate destination.

I learned long ago...the US markings on any piece of armament used only means ‘made by’....not necessary “given” to the the hands that use them.

We’ve armed so many in the Middle East for years that these pass from one border to the next.....legally and not.

“Just as an added note.... there are also concerns of devices planted “in the body” which appear to escape detection”
~~~~~~~~~~~~

The senior U.S. official said there is concern about devices that could be implanted inside the body of a terrorist.

“We are concerned about surgically implanted devices,” they said. “These are guys who have developed the techniques to defeat our detection methods.”

Hmmm...Surgically-implanted, caulk-encased, non-metallic explosive device.

The White House said top administration officials gathered late Saturday over a terror threat that provoked the State Department to close more than 20 diplomatic posts and issue a worldwide travel alert.

National Security Adviser Susan Rice chaired a meeting with 12 administration officials including the secretaries of State, Defense and Homeland Security and the directors of the FBI, CIA and NSA.

Rice and Lisa Monaco, the assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism, then briefed President Obama on the latest developments.

Is this an orange alert or a red alert? :-)
