    While it might change over time, a current search of the web shows that Fox News is the only media outlet with this news story.

    FOXNews.com - Scent-Killing Machine Could Be Sweet Choice for Terrorists

    "Would-be homicide bombers looking to skirt the keen noses of bomb-sniffing dogs can find everything they need at their local hunting store.

    There, for about $300, they can buy a compact ozone machine that hunters use to mask human smells. It's a fairly low-tech device that will enable them to walk undetected past the K-9 units stationed to sniff out explosives at airports, train stations and bus depots."

    Should Fox News really be helping terrorists with "news" like this?

    Actually, many of them....just like any other criminal....are pretty damn stupid. We don't need to help them now do we?

    The guys who strap on the vests, yea, they are dumb as dirt. But they are not the ones who plan an organize it. Those guys are smart.

    We have the MSM telling the world how we torture terrorists.... that makes the situation for our troops an awful lot more dangerous. They tell the world about what we will and will not do. That gives our enemies information that it would be better they did not have. And you're worried about a some smell retardant that is common knowledge. Or do you just want to whine about Fox?

    Being conservative, I complain about any media outlet that decides to inform our enemy of any tactical advantage they might not know about. Telling them how to skirt bomb sniffing dogs is far more dangerous than telling them what kind of torture to expect once they are caught. Do you honestly think this kind of information is good to report?

    Then it mightve been kind of dumb of you to spread the advice by posting it here.

    First, the genie is already out of the bottle. Second, Fox has a little further reach than USMB. Sorry Gunny!
