Apparently, on “credible intelligence” that has taken the security world by storm, Heathrow airport security is on high alert for any woman who looks like she might have breast implant, because explosive-laced fake boobies are the new weapon in the war on freedom. Needless to say, the UK’s version of the TSA is taking the warning to heart and beefing up their security screenings, and I’m sure our own version on this side of the pond, is hastily pulling together a comprehensive security plan.
Heathrow Airport is on high terror alert amid fears women suicide bombers are ready to strike with explosives concealed in breast implants.
Security checks have been beefed up after “credible” intelligence that al-Qaeda is plotting attacks on airlines flying out of London.
One staff member said: “There are genuine fears over this.
“We have been told to pay particular attention to females who may have concealed hidden explosives in their breasts.
“This is particularly difficult for us to pick up but we are on a very high state of alert.
“It’s led to long queues here at Heathrow – much longer than usual at this time of the year.
“But because it’s the summer holiday season, no one has complained.”
Al-Qaeda’s chief bomb-maker Ibrahim al-Asiri is understood to have developed the method of foiling airport scanners by concealing explosives in an implant or bodily cavity.
The article notes that there is no shortage of suicide bombing volunteers since Al Qaeda recently busted several hundred of it’s top guys out of a prison in Pakistan while no one was looking. And Al Qaeda’s top guys have been trying to work on a way to set off a bomb by injecting fluid into a small liquid device concealed in a body cavity. So obviously the whole thing adds up to boobie squeezing, as though we weren’t already completely violated by airport security to begin with.
Personally, while I’m willing to put some stock in the idea that Al Qaeda has been working on ways to circumvent current airport screening systems (and I suppose bombs shoved into as-yet-unsearched areas is one very obvious way of doing that), I’m sketchier on the veracity of the actual “breast implant bomber” threat. Unless, of course, international intelligence has stumbled on a sleeper cell of fourteen-year-old boys, that is.
