This Is The New ISIS Technology That Everyone Needs To Know About

FBI tests show the new terror devices can evade sophisticated screening apparatus in common use at airports worldwide and approved by the Transportation Security Administration.

Moreover, would-be bombers have gotten their hands on screening machines so they can test them in advance.


Feds fear terror groups developing laptop bombs that evade airport security

U.S. intelligence sources suggest ISIS and other terrorist groups can build laptop bombs capable of slipping past airport security scanners, Fox News has learned.

That intelligence is behind the recent decision to ban electronics in carry-on bags from flights to the U.S. from 10 airports in eight Muslim-majority countries, Fox & Friends reported Saturday.

    I wonder where they would have gotten their hands on airport screening machines? Who are those guys (still) working at Trudeau airport in Montreal again?

    Maybe we should ban the muslims, as well as their laptops?

    Your laptop in checked baggage will be safe ……

    Outrage as baggage handlers are filmed kicking and hurling suitcases after dragging them from plane.
    My guess is that car rental desks at airports will soon be renting out laptops.

  • If an explosive laptop is put in the hold, can it not explode just as well as if it is in the cabin? If laptops are banned from the cabin, why are they allowed in the hold? Anyone know?

      .. don’t know, but it would be something along the lines of this if I had to guess. If you really wanna know I could ask someone who does that sorta thing for a living when I see her this week.

      • Thanks Marty. Question stands.

        • El Martyachi

          Just asked ; was told it has to do with the detonation process in which the device needs to be on the person and done manually. And also expect a ban on all electronics in the not-so-distant future apparently.

          • Thanks. I do fear all electronics will be forbidden soon. Another gift from the Muslims to Western lifestyle. So, there’s no ‘remote control’ for these computer bombs, you say?

            Dunno.. and my relative who works in the field probably doesn’t know for sure either; but they’re making policy on these recent threats on that basis. And the threat level is heightened according to her — more staff on in the past weeks, etc.
