Illusive Security

Whatever you come up with, the adversary will come up with a way around it. Look at the history of counterfeiting, the history of cyber attacks, the history of war. So why in the world would you want to subject yourself to this:

[An] operation by MI5 has uncovered evidence that Al Qaeda is planning a new stage in its terror campaign by inserting ‘surgical bombs’ inside people for the first time.

Security services believe the move has been prompted by the recent introduction at airports of body scanners, which are designed to catch terrorists before they board flights.


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.

See what I mean?
