"Remember the biggest drawback to the official story of the Boston bombing being they promised a video showing the two brothers actually planting a bomb when in fact no video existed?
Well now they apparently don’t have to do that. They also don’t have to explain how someone gets a bomb on board an aircraft nor do they have to mess with finding an image of someone who looks like they might be carrying a bomb in their backpack.
No. All they have to do is show a guy wearing a shirt. That’s all they need. No pants, no underwear bomb (that was a clever one) no hat, no backpack. Just a shirt.
The clothing bomb."
Of the 22 most frightening plans for attacks since 9/11 on American soil, 14 were developed in sting operations.

Remember the news story of al-Qaedas mountain bases?
I wonder if they got the idea from C.O.B.R.A mountain bases from the GI Joe universe.
Alleged al-qaeda mountain base...

From the Rippley's Beleive it or Not files, the government has come out with its latest wild claim to keep us in fear of those wiley "terrorists" who are out to get us.
Report: Al-Qaida developed liquid that turns clothes into explosives
An Al-Qaida affiliate has developed a new generation of liquid explosive that U.S. officials fear could be used in a future attack, ABC News reported Monday.
Two senior U.S. government sources who have been briefed on the terror threat that prompted the U.S. to close embassies across the Mideast and North Africa this week, told the network that clothes dipped in the liquid become explosive devices when dry.
One of the U.S. officials described the new generation explosive as "ingenious," while another said it would be undetectable under current security processes.
The liquid explosive is believed to be the brainchild of the Yemen-based affiliate Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the officials told ABC News. This affiliate is home to Ibrahim al-Asiri, a master bombmaker, who was on the 25 "most wanted terrorist" list published by the Yemeni government.
Their claim about what the "terrorists" can do are getting wilder every day. I think if this were possible, The US or Russia would have developed it during the Cold War or some other brilliant scientist out there would have figured out how to do it long ago. Some guy hunkered down in a secret bunker, hiding from the drones somewhere having the time and resources to develop something like this just doesn't seem believable.
Buy hey, whatever wild stories they can spin to keep the public afraid and wanting to be spied on works I guess. If enough people buy into this one, we'll all have to get nekkid if we want to travel in the near future.
