Almost two dozen U.S. embassies and consulates across the Islamic world are closed following the identification of a significant threat from an al-Qaeda Islamic terrorists. Muslim al-Qaeda operatives could be heard talking about an upcoming terrorist attack. The official described the Muslim terrorists as saying the planned attack is “going to be big” and “strategically significant.”
“The part that is alarming is the confidence the Muslims showed while communicating and the air of certainty. Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula appeared to have a media plan for after the attack to broadcast their terror throughout the world.
Authorities do not know the exact target of the planned attack, according to the officials.
“We do not know whether the Muslims mean an embassy, an airbase, an aircraft, trains,” the official said.
The official said there is huge concern about devices that can be implanted inside the body of a Muslim terrorist by Muslim doctors.
“We are concerned about surgically implanted devices, officials said. “The Muslims have developed techniques to defeat our detection methods.”
The official also said authorities were stunned that the group broke “operational security” — meaning they talked likely knowing it would be picked up by intercepts.
ABC News reported Thursday that embassies across the Middle East and North Africa – including those in Egypt, Iraq and Kuwait – would close today because of “a specific threat against a U.S. embassy or consulate.”
Bombs-in-the-body is not a new idea, but recent intelligence indicates a fresh interest in the Islamic community in using this method against the kaffar (people who do not believe in Islam).People-scanning machines in airports aren’t able to detect explosives hidden inside humans.
The good news is a device to detect explosives that have been surgically implanted into a Muslims terrorist body is in development stages at the University of Oklahoma. The device will use X-rays to generate a negative image of the Muslims body and, potentially, the bombs hidden inside it.
