Brit Intel Warns of Surgically Implanted Bombs

The battle against Islamic terrorism just took another turn:

A leading source added that male bombers would have the explosive secreted near their appendix or in their buttocks, while females would have the material placed inside their breasts in the same way as figure-enhancing implants.

Experts said the explosive PETN (Pentaerythritol Tetranitrate) would be placed in a plastic sachet inside the bomber’s body before the wound was stitched up like a normal operation incision and allowed to heal.

A shaped charge of 8oz of PETN can penetrate five inches of armour and would easily blow a large hole in an airliner.

Security sources said the explosives would be detonated by the bomber using a hypodermic syringe to inject TATP (Triacetone Triperoxide) through their skin into the explosives sachet.
I'm not sure if this really possible or just terrorist's trying to scare us even more. US privacy rights will run head on with safety concerns and cause even bigger headaches for TSA and DHS.

Read the article where they mention that the technology is available but the outcry will be enormous from civil liberties groups.
