Check this out...sometimes drug smugglers etc...swallow drugs etc...in order to get them through customs etc...could a terrorist swallow a liquid explosive? How about something that could be detonated by another person? How come "terrorists" are so preoccupied with planes when there are soft targets like movie theaters,hotels,professional sports arenas etc..that they could blow up and cause the same damage and make the same statement? If a real terrorist wanted to do damage in America...I see it as ridiculously easy. They are messing around with airplanes and failing? They could poison water,release gas. Alqeada? Give me a break. Leaders rarely run for office...they are too busy leading.
