What makes deta sheets especially dangerous is that they can be hidden in books or letters. It cannot be spotted by a metal detector but are used by engineers for detonation

What is so serious about it ? 250 lbs isn't that much. Any bomb maker worth his salt could make an explsove of similar power such as RDX. Sure it's in sheets, but many explosives can be shaped into sheets.
