This is coolbert:
Here from the web site HSToday, a discussion of the terrorist bomb, hidden INSIDE THE BODY!
"The Threat of Body Bombs and Surgical Implants"
The Al Qaeda villain, Al Asiri, blowing himself up with a suicide bomb, inserted in his rectum. Attempting to kill the head of Saudi counter-terrorism. Al Asiri, posing as a defector, "wielding" a bomb more or less undetectable by ordinary means.
The remotely detonated suicide bomb, hidden inside the body of the jihadist, posing a new and frightening threat to security!
The circumstances surrounding the attempting assassination of the Saudi prince are not entirely clear.
From National Public Radio:
* The bomb was either placed in the rectum as would be a suppository, OR PERHAPS TOO WAS SWALLOWED!! This has not been determined!
* Al Asiri perhaps did not pass undetected through two airport checkpoints. THE PRINCES OWN PRIVATE JET WAS USED TO TRANSPORT AL ASIRI TO SAUDI FROM YEMEN! NORMAL AIRPORT SECURITY WAS BYPASSED, SO DESIROUS WAS THE PRINCE TO GET HIS HANDS ON A PURPORTED WILLING AL QAEDA DEFECTOR!!??
Details regard the suicide bombing are sketchy and speculative at best [my comments in light green]:
It is speculated that Al Asiri DID NOT HAVE THE BOMB INSIDE HIS BODY.
"Al Asiri used some form of plastic or liquid explosive that was ignited with a chemical fuse, and that the bomb was concealed in his underwear."
Such a bomb would not be found unless the man stripped naked or was thoroughly searched with a total pat-down, including the area of the groin/private parts!
"the Aug. 28 detonation of between 100 grams to one pound of explosives"
One-quarter pound of C4 explosive can bring down a jet airliner?!
"Three years ago, an Iraqi national found to have electrical wires and a magnet inside his rectum sparked a security scare at Los Angeles International Airport [LAX]"
Never heard of this one before. Bad guy at LAX was on a "dry-run". Testing security to see what could and what could not evade security. Sounds like it to me. Wires and a magnet up the butt! Gross!
"hiding upwards of three pounds of C-4, Semtex or some other plastic bonded explosive (PBX) rectally, vaginally and even surgically"
"women jihadists hiding explosives inside “pregnancy prosthetics … that mimic the look of a pregnant woman.”
Right!! Women most off all make the best candidates for hiding explosives inside the body. Muslim women in particular are especially "touchy" about being interrogated, searched, "patted down". A cultural taboo exists that makes the job of an airport screener when confronted by a belligerent Islamic female very risky and difficult!!
And not only placing the bomb, remotely detonated in the rectum, or swallowing. Surgically implanted too. Other than a full body x-ray, no way to detect this stuff.
Bend over and smile!!
