Explosives implanted inside bodies may be behind current terror alerts

Explosives implanted inside bodies may be behind current terror alerts

Why the sudden and hysterical terror alerts causing shutdown of U.S. Embassies in the Middle East and worldwide concern?

This may be the reason, via ABC News:

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.”

The official also said authorities were stunned that the group broke “operational security” — meaning they talked likely knowing it would be picked up by intercepts.

This would be consistent with prior reports of this method of attack:

The one aspect of the intelligence that officials appear to agree on is that Al Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen is behind the plotting.

The group, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, has tried to carry out several high-profile attacks in recent years. One was a man’s attempt to blow up a trans-Atlantic jet over Detroit on Dec. 25, 2009, using explosives sewn into his underwear. Months earlier, the group tried to kill the Saudi intelligence chief with a bomb surgically implanted in the attacker’s body.

American officials believe that both bombs were built by Ibrahim al-Asiri, one of the group’s leaders whom the Obama administration has been trying to kill as part of a campaign in Yemen using armed drones.

How serious are they? This serious:

The [2008] plan was engineered by AQAP’s ingenious chief bomb-maker Ibrahim al Asiri, who planted a bomb inside the rectum of his own brother. The operative gained an audience with the Saudi prince by pretending to defect and duly set off the bomb. But Nayef survived the attack.

A recent attack in Afghanistan used this method:

Afghanistan’s spy chief, Asadullah Khalid, was taking no chances.

A man had crossed into Afghanistan from Pakistan with important information he said he would only deliver personally to Mr. Khalid, who had just taken over as the head of the National Directorate of Security.

Mr. Khalid’s aides took the visitor to an armored room in the basement of a safe house in Taimani, an upscale neighborhood in the capital city, for a security screening. They were no doubt mindful of what happened in September 2011 when a Taliban peace emissary was allowed to meet with a prominent Afghan peace envoy and then killed him with a bomb hidden in his turban.

Watching the man over closed-circuit television, they ordered him to strip naked, which he did. Satisfied, they let him get dressed and took him to see their boss upstairs.

Then he blew up. The suicide bomber killed only himself, but Mr. Khalid sustained severe abdominal wounds as well as injuries to his hands and arms.

Now, months after that attack, on Dec. 6, a spokesman for the National Directorate of Security, Shafiqullah Tahiri, confirmed that the attacker had hidden the bomb inside his rectum.

There’s a long history of warnings about implanted bombs:

It’s now clear why the alert was issued just now, but I’m not subscribing to the view that this is just hype to justify NSA snooping.

This SHINY OBJECT will be deemed a SUCCESS if you have already forgotten about the MASSIVE, UNCONSTITUTIONAL, UNLAWFUL OBOZO totalitarian police state SPYING on YOU via your phone calls, your e-mails your financial transactions and your school records (NB: the latter DOES NOT APPLY to OBOZO who has NO school records – at least none that show that he is other than a “foreign student” getting “foreign student aid.”) And, of course, they also hope you have now forgotten about all those “phony” OBOZO regime scandals.

Pardon this interruption about REALITY – you may now go back to your “low-information / no-information” stupor.

Can’t we shut down Yemen’s airports instead? “No takeoffs, no landings. Serious, you guys.”

Yemen’s economy? Who cares?

    Juba Doobai! in reply to Fabi. | August 5, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    Thing is, Fabi, they do have a butt bomb brigade. In order to qualify, the guys have to be sodomized to gain the flexibility to allow for the insertion of the bomb. I kid you not. Some imam was asked the question about whether it was permissible to engage in sodomy for the sake of jihad. The imam replied it was though sodomy is forbidden in Islam (yeah, right!), but since jihad for the sake of Allah trumps the sodomy rule, then it was permitted guys to use human butt plugs in order to prepare them to blow up folks with butt bombs. Wonderful thing is Islam. Everything is permissible for the sake of jihad.

Carol Herman | August 5, 2013 at 2:00 pm

I see. Stuffed up his rectum. Instead of being tied up in his turban. How many volunteers do these al-kay-duh guys get? Do any of them speak English? Or Russian? Or French? Or Chinese? Or do they have their eardrums knock out so they can “play” deaf?

And, aren’t the targets rather hit or miss?

Let alone how many of them, once the bomb is shoved up their rectums, get the very need to take a sh!T?

Sometimes, when you give a patient a barium enema. And, you ask the patient to “hold it in.” They don’t. Those patients are called flamers.

Next one of these jerks will ask for the “smoking section” so they can light up their exploding cigars.

And, of course, because of the “butt chucks” … be’ve closed down embassies (including the one in Tel Aviv) … for a week. I guess the embassies are being fitted out with “fool proof” toilets?

Just when you thought we couldn’t bring any more foolishness to 9/11 … we get the morons in DC to “double down.”

Do you really feel safer now?

What happens, say you’re on a TSA line, and the guy ahead of you farts? Does chaos break loose?

    JackRussellTerrierist in reply to Carol Herman. | August 5, 2013 at 6:11 pm

    LMAO 🙂

    I wonder if Al Asiri needs to return to the drawing board or if this is all just trumped up BS from obastard as a diversion. Hell, for all we know obastard may be paying Al Asiri to do this “shit”.

This seems like a lame way to kill lots of people and we have shut down embassies. Hmmmmm…. What will the terrorists do next? Make up phoney plots, create lots of chatter and hope that this administration takes the bait? Will rectal exams be added to TSA screens? Gee, they could combine healthcare with TSA and kill 2 birds with one stone!

Gives the school boy trick of lighting ones farts a new, more sinister result.

“Here; catch!”

Uncle Samuel | August 5, 2013 at 2:31 pm

The PC police have obscured the truth.

Now conservatives are affected/infected by the propaganda and that makes a dangerous situation worse.

Red State blog rules says you can’t comment at that site if you say anything negative about Islam.

CPAC has gone all pro-Islamic CAIR compliant (full Dhimmi).

Remember CPAC 2012? CPAC (like the UK) disinvited (if they ever invited) Pam Gellar and Robert Spencer insinuating they are mistaken about Islam.

Too bad the GOP RINOs can’t read even an English translation of the Koran or the charters and constitutions of Islamist nations.

Even if they can’t read competently, they could watch the news of beheadings, stonings, hangings, crucifixions, church burnings, rapes (of men, women and children) in Tahrir Square, of the genocides in Syria, daily bombings in Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Nigeria – every country infested by Islam.

They could click on the Religion of Peace link and see what Islamists do on a daily basis to each other and to people of other religions and nationalities and learn that there have been 21,356 murderous jihad attacks since 9/11/01.

IMNSHO – One can’t be negative enough about Islam.

    Catherine in reply to Uncle Samuel. | August 5, 2013 at 3:34 pm

    Yes, Islam itself sucks. There are good and decent muslim people and I don’t attribute any of the goodness of these people to Islam at all but rather to the individuals good character.

    If a person values truth, how can he/she say Islam is good? Certainly, since 9/11 we all have witnessed violence perpetrated by muslims seeking islamic martyrdom ie kill as many infidel as you can while killing yourself.

    I don’t like our country importing muslim men who have contempt for women. Muslim people have had slaves in the US! Muslim men have honor-killed their female relatives all over the world including the US and that ghastly case in Canada where 3 people in one family killed at least 3 of their female relatives and put them in a car that was pushed into a body of water.

    Once gay marriage is fully established, will polygamy be next? Islam says polygamy is ok and I don’t agree. It’s a bad deal for women.

    I could go on & on about negative aspects of Islam… I don’t like politicians pretending that Islam is just another religion. A religion that says it is okay to kill people who don’t believe it is not just any other religion and it needs to be treated in a different manner.

      NC Mountain Girl in reply to Catherine. | August 5, 2013 at 5:32 pm

      Polygamy is often a very bad deal for men, too. The large extended families found in Islam are often riven with jealousies among wives that effects the children and which tends to mean boys may grow up without spending a lot of time with fathers who have found the key to peace is to spend very little time at home. The restrictions on contact with women outside one’s families mean most marriages are arranged – usually by a boy’s mother.

      I don’t find it a coincidence that the misogyny of much of the Islamic world is a trait shared by the gangsta culture of American inner cities where so many boys spend little or no time with their fathers.

      Juba Doobai! in reply to Catherine. | August 5, 2013 at 7:23 pm

      You contradict yourself, Catherine. If they are Muslims and they believe in Islam how can they be “good” and “decent” when “If a person values truth, how can he/she say Islam is good?”?

      If they are “good” and “decent” then they must “value truth”; however, they say “Islam is good”. If they say “Islam is good” then they do not “value truth” and therefore cannot be “good” or “decent”.

      In sum, you cannot separate the Muslim from what he believes cuz he is called “Muslim” because he believes in Islam.

        Catherine in reply to Juba Doobai!. | August 5, 2013 at 8:52 pm

        Some muslims are muslims in name only. There are other muslims who don’t know that much about their faith and live secular lives. There are people who grew up in muslim countries who have rejected Islam in their lives but don’t want to tell their relatives. I’m concerned about muslims who have studied Islam in depth and who embrace it and think it is good. I’m concerned about holier than thou muslims who punish those who aren’t muslim enough and/or who want to kill non-muslims.

          Juba Doobai! in reply to Catherine. | August 5, 2013 at 10:46 pm

          On the other and, we should be concerned about ALL Muslims. At some point, even the “secular” ones want to enter paradise, and they will kill you to get there. A Jewish guy in TX found that out the hard way when his years long Muslim “friend” stopped being a secularist party animal and cut the Jewish guy’s throat. The only time their being Muslim should be regarded as of no account is when they convert to Christianity. Jihad is to Islam as Passover is to Judaism and the Lord’s Supper is to Christianity, and we know that even secular Christians find their way to church at Christmas and Easter.

I have no problem with our government shutting down embassies while they consider how to make things safer for the people who work at the embassies and the people who are visiting embassies for normal reasons. Most of the countries are muslim countries where some portion of the citizens are jihadist or jihadist sympathizers. We do need to figure out how to protect ourselves from jihadists who are so desperate for 72 virgins that they will have bombs put in their rectum or surgically sown in elsewhere or merely wear an underwear bomb.

Could we please limit the people from those countries from visiting here for any reason? Why should they be able to come here and live here in relative safety while we can’t do the same in their countries?

Heyyyyy, baaabeee…

Wanna see my lil’ stick of dynamite…???

I’ll be da bomb for you, if you’ll be my primer…

“who planted a bomb inside the rectum of his own brother”

Makes you wonder how many years he dreamed of that.

I’ll take this “threat” with a grain of salt, thank you very much.

Those of you still in the “why would the government lie about this?” camp, ask yourself this:

Why is this “rock solid terror threat” receiving non-stop publicity from MSM, when an actual “rock solid terror attacks are barely mentioned by them?

A terror threat so ominous, so dastardly, that President Obama himself Susan Rice herself ordered the embassy closings.

While it’s fun to make jokes about the methods used by suicide bombers I have to say that, like Prof. Jacobson, I’m not subscribing to the view that this is just hype to justify NSA snooping.

I might if it was just the corrupt White House warning of this terror threat but I find it difficult to believe that other countries and even Interpol would be issuing the same warnings at the behest of Obama.

Carol Herman | August 5, 2013 at 3:42 pm

Surgically implanted?

There’s an old, by now, book out there (but it is still available at Amazon). Called: The Saturday Knife & Gun Club. You can call it a novel. But it’s basically a true story, written by a medical resident. Who went to NY Medical College. And, served at both Metropolitan Hospital, and Flower & Fifth Avenue. Metropolitan is a 1000 bed Manhattan facility, on the East River, in Harlem. It’s the sister hospital to Harlem Hospital. And, I suppose, Bellevue.

Among the stories is one told about a homosexual gentleman, who walked into the emergency room (have stood all the way inside the ambulance.) He couldn’t sit down. Because his lover got angry. And, shoved a dildo all the way up his behind, where it took a “turn.” And, none of the doctors could remove it. (Besides the X-Ray of this device, “inside,” a resident from OB/GYN was called. He could feel it, but could get it out.)

Do you know how this problem was solved? He was admitted. And, given medication that “moved” his bowels to give it out. And, the next day he was “relieved.” And, able to be discharged.

Of course, after trying underwear, and shoes, why wouldn’t the al-kay-duh guys think of a rear end insert? The same way they can open up a woman’s belly, and stuff in explosives … where she tries to pass herself off as pregnant. Hey, maybe even in labor?

And, we keep thinking guns are dangerous.

    NC Mountain Girl in reply to Carol Herman. | August 5, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    Every emergency room seems to have a similar story of some amazingly large item that was inserted via the rectum.

    In our suspicions of the motives of this administration let us not lose sight of the fact that a new generation of terrorist want to make a name for themselves. It does concern me that this might actually be an effective way to place a significant amount of a high explosive near a key structural component of a building, which is exactly what Al Qaeda has been known to do. I suspect the large intestine could hold a considerable amount of plastic explosive encased in some sort of membrane. Then drugs like imodium could be taken to slow the body’s process of ejecting such materials. I am not sure how such a device might be detonated, but a human bomb with some knowledge of crucial building loads is not something to take lightly. Especially not from a group that actually did recruit people to train as pilots so they could crash jetliners into buildings full of people.

    These people create only death and destruction but their membership includes people with knowledge of construction, engineering and medicine. Nor do they have scruples about poisoning people, perforating bowels or blowing people up in an attempt to refine a new bombing technique.

      dorsaighost in reply to NC Mountain Girl. | August 5, 2013 at 5:14 pm

      are you saying a human bomb could bring down a building ? really ?

      you do realize that our embassies don’t let you just wander around the building looking for critical building structures …

      There’s a limit to the SIZE of something somebody can shove up a rectum. Maybe 2″ diameter x 10″? Naturally, this does not hold true for some people … like Chuck Schumer. But let’s not digress.

      So how much plastic explosive can you shove up a butt? Enough to kill yourself and a few people standing close by … but no more. You certainly can’t take down a building. Maybe an airliner, though.

      I think if this happens, it will be for shock value and scare value. And anticipate TSA adding proctologists to the airport regimen. Al Qaeda wants to disrupt our procedures and make life miserable in the US and cause us to incur additional economic cost … and this would do it.

“The official also said authorities were stunned that the group broke “operational security” — meaning they talked likely knowing it would be picked up by intercepts.”

If I really wanted to mess with someone or some country… I’d want them running around in a panic, expending resources to uncover my “plot”. It does seem like this is a whole lot of hype for a method that doesn’t cause mass casualties and is only guaranteed to kill the moron actually carrying the bomb.

    dorsaighost in reply to Sanddog. | August 5, 2013 at 5:12 pm

    at best they could get one guy into several embassies and kill a handful of people … seems like really big car bombs would be much more effective and easier to do …

All of the Embassies should remain closed, forever. That way, no visas can be issued from those countries and no future terrorists would be allowed to enter our country, at least from their country.

Manipulating the U.S. Intelligence Community Shouldn’t Be This Easy

The embassy shutdowns and the traveler warnings resulted from intercepts of terrorist communications devices – phones and computer links that the terrorists surely knew are being monitored. That knowledge long predates the recent publicity – revelation is the wrong term – about NSA’s reach into the electronic spectrum.

New gubmint airlines surcharge: $25 for rectum inspection

they didn’t break opsec … the chatter is the OPERATION … they could do this once a month for years without actually losing a single jihadist …

I think someone just watched Salt again …

you can close every embassy, the terrorist will just wait until it opens Monday. i doubt that those are the targets seems like the only ones in this country that have power are the aliens, and the usa is just their playground.

Carol Herman | August 5, 2013 at 6:19 pm

How did this idea ever get sold? (Yes, I’m sure drug runners have done several different types of body implants, to bring drugs into this country. Sometimes, even, the “mules” had to swallow the condoms filled with drugs, hoping they didn’t bust. Because that only kills the mule.)

Can you imagine the conversations to get this idea started? Who gets to call the saud’s and ask for funding?

Who gets to produce the plans, and unwind the diagrams … And, then pointing at what’s intended. To make it more like an airplane, the “carriers” can be taught to walk about flapping their arms? Maybe, they can make flying noises?

Oh, and how is the fuse inserted? Are you using skilled surgeons, no less?

And, then, because “Bronco Bama” needs a big distraction … to move people’s eyes away from the IRS scandal. And, even the latest developments out of Benghazi … (Where, per DEBKA, some of the missiles, etc., have ended up in the Sinai. And, are being used to shoot at the Egyptian military) …

I can just imagine the TOP meeting … where someone suggests a “solution.” You’ll see. America will close its embassies! Why? Because there will be terrorists running towards embassies who look in dire distress. Where they need to use bathrooms pronto. Tonto. Maybe, one will duck behind a palm tree. When just at that moment the tree explodes. Later, this will become a place for martyrdom gatherings.

I don’t care that embassies have been closed. I’m just shocked, annoyed and disgusted that we’ve done so because of HUGE Preparation H inserts that really clean out out, guaranteeing you’ll never be constipated in your life, again.

I want to meet the genius who let this one pass up the chain of command.

You know? What if those “inserts” were in the shape of golf balls? Would that mean “Brono Bama’s” links would have to be shut down?

Remember, when there were contests where you could guess how many jelly beans were in the jar? Maybe, we can do lineups of terrorists … where we guess how many golf balls there are “up there?” What would be the most anyone could hold?

Which democrat sent the rockets, Kerry or McCain.

The US is sending a team to the World Junior Swim Champs to be held in Dubai this month.

This demonstrates something – either the whole thing is fake or they don’t care about these kids.

Cannot have it both ways.

    Swimming? Not in bikinis. Not in body hugging, snug fitting, swimwear. Hope the kids get used to swimming in their overcoats. Because in Dubai no one jumps into the water without being “appropriately attired.

    Okay. They can put goggles on, to wear over the headdress. So the fabric doesn’t flap into their eyes.

    I hope we’re also sending lifeguards.

      Yes . Maybe there is an official waiver. Whilst the swim racing gear is neck to knee super tight , parts of the outfit are mesh & see through lus open backed.

      The increase coverage for boys – compression fabric knee length jammers – is credited to keeping boys in the sport. Previously when the had to wear little clingy speedos – they got too embarrassed.

      I just thought I would give a shout out for our young men .it is not always just about girls.

Henry Hawkins | August 5, 2013 at 8:19 pm

This type of bomb has been used a number of times already, but as an assassination tool rather than a mass kill device. You can only get so much explosive and shrapnel into a human body and expect it to remain mobile enough to access the target. A bomb is a bomb, but these would be pretty small devices. That said, it doesn’t take much to bring down an airplane.

Terror? Which is more terrifying – A jihadist with a bomb in his belly or a lying administration married to an accomplice media with the result that it’s impossible to know what to believe?

My best guess is this is pure kabuki to distract from the parade of scandals. If so, it is imperative to watch what the other Obama hand is doing.

Carol Herman | August 5, 2013 at 8:29 pm

Kabuki is a wonderful thing. It takes an actor a good five minutes in a slow shuffle, just to walk across the stage.

When Kabuki, however, enters our military strategy sessions, oh, boy. You need to give out medals for stupid.

Quite frankly, as a surgeon I am very surprised that implanting suicide bombs into wannabe jihad martyrs hasn’t become widespread. The operation to put such a device into the abdomen is almost trivial — and could easily be done without general anesthesia.

And, of course, Ayman al-Zawahiri, one of bin laden’s close associates, was allegedly a surgeon.

The hardest thing to do would be to construct the device — and since the islamic boys are quite good at making remote controlled IED’s (all for Allah’s glory, of course), it would not be all that hard a task. The biggest challenge would be to sterilize it before implanting it into the aspiring martyr’s abdomen.

Setting it off on a plane would certainly accomplish the desired objective, but they really wouldn’t even have to do that — having some jihad boys explode in a TCA line at two or three airports would wreck havoc on the nation’s air transportation.

    There was the 2 Iraqui & Pakistani jihadi docs in Britain who did not have time or skill . So they drove an SUV into an airport building.

    Because doctors in those societies are often concentrated in select families – all their relatives were dragged out of hospitals & imprisoned for questioning.

    It turned out they were not involved but it sure shook some trust in doctors.

Uncle Samuel | August 6, 2013 at 3:35 am

In the figurative literary sense, McCain, Graham and Rubio and more than a few others have become Obama’s ‘up yours’ explosive mules in our government.

Obamacare, Amnesty and Voter ID are mega-size truck bombs that will destroy the US for years to come.

Just like the repeal of DADT has done in the military. Since the repeal, the greatest number of sexual assaults in the military has been Male/Male.

That greatly increases risk of STD infections exponentially. Many incurable (Herpes, hepatitis, HIV, HPV) and now a new strain of gonorrhea that is untreatable.
