Radicals' deadly 'booby trap'
The Sun (UK) ^ | 23 Mar 2010 | RHODRI PHILLIPS

Female suicide bombers are being fitted with exploding breast implants which are almost impossible to detect, British spies have reportedly discovered.

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.

MI5 has also discovered that extremists are inserting the explosives into the buttocks of some male suicide bombers.

Terrorist expert Joseph Farah claims: "Women suicide bombers recruited by al-Qaeda are known to have had the explosives inserted in their breasts under techniques similar to breast enhancing surgery."

The lethal explosives called PETN are inserted inside plastic shapes during the operation, before the breast is then sewn up.

The discovery of these methods was made after London-educated Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab came close to blowing up an airliner in the US on Christmas Day.

He had stuffed explosives inside his underpants.

Hours after he had failed, Britain's intelligence services began to pick up "chatter" emanating from Pakistan and Yemen that alerted MI5 to the creation of the lethal implants.

A hand-picked team investigated the threat which was described as "one that can circumvent our defence".

Top surgeons have confirmed the feasibility of the explosive implants.

One claimed: "Properly inserted the implant would be virtually impossible to detect by the usual airport scanning machines.

"You would need to subject a suspect to a sophisticated X-ray.

"Given that the explosive would be inserted in a sealed plastic sachet, and would be a small amount, would make it all the more impossible to spot it with the usual body scanner."

Explosive experts allegedly told MI5 that a sachet containing as little as five ounces of PETN could blow "a considerable hole" in an airline's skin, causing it to crash.

At least they’ll “look good” when they blow themselves into bloody bits of protoplasm. This shows great sensitivity by the islamofacist males toward the sensitivities of their females. mooslim summation: I love you. I kill you. Boom!

“...extremists are inserting the explosives into the buttocks of some male suicide bombers.”

Wow - the ultimate way for a gay boy to get off.

The story doesn’t explain how these will be detonated. The fake picture showed a pocket watch which could certainly set off a metal detector.

***I have that movie, based on Robert Sheckley’s book**

I saw it at the theater back in the Dark ages of 1966. Ursula’s boob guns were pictured in Playboy that year.

OK, that triggered my gag reflex.

Obvious corrections required to previous policy.

But...are you sure she’s female? I mean really...
