This may sound fanciful but it is a possibility. Most modern day terrorists care nothing for their own life. They are prepared to die as long as they can wreak havoc on those designated as their enemies. Whilst carrying some sort of explosive device or detonator inside your body right now may seem unlikely, due to the metal content and our current airport screening machines, it is not that far out of the realms of possibility.
The underwear bomber has shown that security is being tested constantly and new means of causing destructionare being tried all the time. Today, May 9, 2012, it has been announced that the so called underwear bomber was, or is, a double agent. US officials claim that the bomber wasdispatched by Yemen-based al-Qaeda to attack a plane bound for the USA. Little did this Al Qaeda group know that he was not what he seemed, or maybe they did?
He was in fact a double agent who had infiltrated the terrorist group. He reportedly left the group and made his way to CIA agents. In doing so he delivered them the bomb and thus vital information on the group and the latest bomb device.
The double agent hails from Saudi Arabia where he is now said to be safe and well. US intelligence have been looking into the Yemen Al Qaeda for some time and they knew there was a forthcoming plane bomb plot. Plots and counter plots appear to abound and it must be fair to assume that spying and intelligence units are in operation more than ever.
