GUESS IT'S BACK TO THE PAT DOWN

TELEGRAPH, UK - Breast implants packed with explosives could be used to blow up an airliner, experts are said to have warned. Radical Islamist plastic surgeons could be carrying out the implant operations in lawless areas of Pakistan, security sources are said to warned.

Explosives experts have reportedly said just five ounces of Pentaerythritol Tetrabitrate packed into a breast implant would be enough to blow a "considerable" hole in the side of a jumbo jet.

It would be virtually possible for airport security scanners to detect the explosive if hidden inside a breast, medics have said.

One plastic surgeon told The Sun: "Properly inserted the implant would be virtually impossible to detect by the usual airport scanning machines.

"You would need to subject a suspect to a sophisticated X-ray. Given that the explosive would be inserted in a sealed plastic sachet, and would be a small amount, would make it all the more impossible to spot it with the usual body scanner."

A terrorist could insert a half a pound of plastic explosives in his butt. This too would be invisible to the scanners.

Prepare yourselves, sheep. Full proctological and gynecological exams coming soon to airports.

In all recent cases, including 9/11, those intending harm to an aircraft were either under surveillance or otherwise known to the people charged with maintaining public security.

On January 27, 2010, testimony to a Congressional committee revealed that the State Department was prepared to revoke the "Christmas bomber"s visa weeks ahead of the incident. but was instructed not to do so by a "national security agency".

Who is guarding the guards?
