Suicide Bombers Wore What?


The Counterterrorism Blog notes that experts are concerned about mall attacks in the US, and suggest we study the Israeli model of profiling and interdiction:

Security guards need more training on that model, and mall customers need to recognize potential terrorists in their midst. Steve especially noted that one of the 7/7 London suicide bombers bought and wore perfume, apparently in preparation to meet his "72 virgins" as promised by jihadist propaganda.

These guys have been watching way too much Queer Eye if you ask me. After all, these 72 virgins are supposed to be a lock, right? I mean, it's not like you've got to win them over. So why wouldn't you just go with your everyday sweaty male musk, mixed with the telltale aphrodisiac of cordite? Perfume? What? Evening in Paris do you think? Or Obsession? (OK, so I don't know squat about perfume. I smell vaguely like Budweiser most of the time.)

Keep your noses peeled. It's your civic duty.
