Bosom Bombers… New Terror Threat?

HOUSTON, Tex.(NBC) — A British intelligence service says it’s discovered that gel and saline implants may be used by al-Qaeda to terrorize innocent people.

 British spy satellites have reportedly intercepted terrorist communications from Pakistan and Yemen, talking about women suicide bombers getting explosives put inside breast implants.  Former Houston FBI Director Don Clark said he believes U.S. Homeland Security is taking this threat very seriously.  “I’m sure we are gathering all the information, intelligence that the government can” he said. “They are also securing all the ports, airports and main attractions as much as possible. The government takes these types of threats seriously and not relaxed.”

 The British Intel Service reports that several plastic surgeons, who were trained in some of London’s best hospitals, have returned to their countries to perform the surgeries.  Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose says that the industry’s technology makes the bombs possible and easy.

It’s unknown how well full-body scanners would detect explosives inside implants.  The Transportation Security Administration said its scanners do detect explosive materials and residue.

I think explosive implants will be more difficult to detect than any of Victoria’s Secrets!  In addition to the implant threat, TSA has also released photos of other suspected types of ‘booby traps’, or the more obvious ‘over the shoulder boulder holder’ exploding devices.   See pics below, three examples of suspicious brassiere threats to air safety.  ~Martha

    I suppose the next threat will be penile projectiles! After all they will
    just have to modify implants!

      Very good point Nancy. With the breast implant news, I will begin performing mini-breast exams on female passengers during boarding. Oh, I don’t mean passengers with “mini-breasts”. Ah contraire! I know we’re not to ‘profile’ our passengers, but I feel that any flyer with more than a perky set of knockers is now suspect, and a mini-mamo is in order. And for the male suspects, I don’t think a pre-departure “squeeze and a jiggle” is too much to ask. You know, for safety. Hey, if a dudes gonna blow, I’d rather it happen during a test honk on the ground, and not at 34,000 feet! ~ Martha
