    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (KABC) -- A new terror threat in the skies: al-Qaeda may be planning suicide attacks on airliners with bombs hidden inside the human body that would be invisible to airport scanners.

    According to British intelligence sources, the move to surgically implanted devices comes as more and more airports have introduced body scanners at security checkpoints.

    The implants would not only escape detection, but according to security and medical experts, they could hide enough liquid explosives to bring down an airliner.

    First it was the "shoe bomber," Richard Reid, who tried to detonate a bomb built into the bottom of his shoe.

    Then in December, the so-called "Christmas bomber" allegedly tried to bring down a passenger jet with explosives that had been sewn into his underwear.

    Now a new terror threat: surgically implanted explosives.

    "It seems like these days, any of these things could really happen," said Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Stuart Linder. He specializes in body sculpting. He says the idea of silicone implants that could be injected with powerful liquid explosives is not only possible, but plausible.

    "The consideration that a silicone-gel implant could be placed in a woman's body with an explosive internal device is something that is considerably possible," said Linder.

    Tests on real plans have shown that even a small amount of explosive material could create small tears in fuselages. That could then lead to catastrophic failure. If an implant was loaded with explosives, it would be detonated with a hypodermic syringe to inject another chemical into the skin.

    "With respect to a silicone implant, internally, some things such as PETN [pentaerythritol tetranitrate] could be placed in that, in something small -- it's only five ounces -- is plausible to be placed in a female's breast, and it could be ignited or activated and absolutely could cause a lethal explosion," said Linder.

    Published reports say that British spies learned of the new threat when they detected increased chatter on Arabic Web sites.

    Security experts say the surgically implanted explosives would go undetected by full-body scanners at airports.

    According to Australian security experts, the best way to detect these new kinds of implanted explosives is with a very old-fashioned but highly effective detection method: the nose of a highly trained bomb-sniffing dog.

    Whether or not it's Islamaphobia, IMO, depends on the mindset of the reader. Islam is not mention oncce in that article. We are engaged in a violent political struggle with some people who happen to be muslim; so for me, all I see is a security warning. And if it's true, Al Queda from a tactical POV is being really clever. And they are reacting to security moves by the rest of the world.

    IMO, people who think, speak, and act as if we're in a struggle with Islam, make the job of defeating AQ more difficult because their thoughts, words, and deeds alienate more young muslims and create fertile recruiting grounds for AQ.

    Radical Muslim leaders send fawning zombies to blow themselves to bits in order to kill others for not believing...along with innocent Muslims that may be nearby at the time. Radical Muslims constitute a small fraction of the Muslim population. Such killings from the radical Muslims will continue until all radical Muslims are dead.

    In time it will be supplanted by the evils of eurasia, which in turn will yield its place to the evil of eastasia, and the cycle will repeat itself again and again.

    I suppose it was only a matter of time before they try to hide explosives internally.

    Hey, how about we don't let Muslims on airplanes, especially foreign ones. Problem solved.

    Isalmophobia will not end until a replacement threat is found.
    Certain parts of our society need a big bad enemy lurking out there to be able to manipulate the masses thru fear.

    Islamofascists replaced the commies.

    Why do you think it's up to us to 'let muslims on airplanes'. Muslims get on airplanes every hour of every day all over the world and the planes take off and land as scheduled. It's not up to us to 'let' muslims do anything. They have the same inalienable rights that you have and are free to come and go as they see fit. Why some people can't seem to understand that the actions of a few cannot and should not be assigned to the many.
