Breast Implants For Terrorists?
Terrorist plot: Check.
Explosive PETN: Check.
Breast Implants: Check.
Now that the TSA is considering a switch to full-body scanners that leave nothing to the imagination, it’s possible that would-be terrorists could conceal explosive materials in unscannable areas like breast implants, says Elan Singer in his Forbes.com article.
According to Singer, all a terrorist would need to set off bomb material implanted in breasts – or any other fleshy body part like thighs for that matter – is a liquid accelerant that could be injected with a pen.
The point of this hypothetical situation? Sanger is suggesting that new full-body scanner searches will just push terrorists to start implanting explosive materials within the body – making all of us even less safe with nothing to show for it other than a longer wait in security check point lines.
Who would have ever thought..?
