An explanation for the insulin theft?

    Just in case you were wondering why insulin could have been perceived as a sufficient "threat" to require it to be stolen from a diabetic pregnant woman, here's some background from a Ministry of Homeland Security “Threat Assessment” from March 2010 entitled “Female Suicide Bombers.”

    First, I need to tell you that if you read this, you yourself might be a threat to the nation's security. From the preamble of this now widely disseminated document:

    This product contains Law Enforcement Sensitive (LES) information. No portion of the LES information should be released to the media, the general public, or over non-secure Internet servers. Release of this information could adversely affect or jeopardize investigative activities. This document is loaned to your agency for your official use and remains the property of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), through U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). This information cannot be further released, disseminated, disclosed or transmitted without prior approval from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

    Cutting through the hotel sierra surrounding all of this, we find according to the report:

    Al-Qa’ida, reportedly, is considering using breast implants as a means to conceal explosives, which would be detonated by a liquid filled syringe that would replicate diabetics injecting insulin. Diabetic supplies (insulin and syringes) are not prohibited items on airliners.

    But wait, there's more!

    According to open source reporting, one of the possible new methods of hiding explosives will be to surgically implant the explosive inside the body cavity of the individual carrying out the attack. Open source reporting states that Britain’s MI5 intelligence service discovered that doctors have trained at Britain’s leading hospitals and have returned to their own countries to fit individuals with surgical implants filled with explosives. Reportedly, al-Qa’ida has already experimented with placing PETN in plastic bags and surgically implanting them in female’s breasts to give the impression they have undergone breast augmentation.

    Yep, women with large breasts -- a threat to the Republic!

    Other tactics include surgically implanting plastic bags of explosives in the stomach, upper thighs, or buttocks. (Note: Surgical implants have been used in the past by drug trafficking organizations as a means to smuggle cocaine). The bag of explosive would be subsequently detonated with a liquid filled syringe replicating diabetic injections of insulin. Reportedly, surgeons at Britain’s National Health Service confirmed the feasibility of the explosive implant. To date, there are no regulations against diabetics carrying supplies (insulin and/or syringes) onboard an airliner.

    And guess what high-level source supports all this?

    According to, there are 25.8 million diabetics in the U.S. Stealing insulin from 25.8 Americans isn't going to fly.

    We could go to the (largely ignored) Australian solution where undeclared "sharpies" (including hypodermic needles) can only be in checked luggage. If you need injectable medications in-flight, you can make arrangements with the airline for them to have your "sharpies" available when you need them.

    My wife just ignored the Australian rules when we were flying on Virgin Blue a while back & she wasn't challenged. At $60/injection (not insulin, obviously) there was no way she was putting her two-week supply in checked luggage.

    Unfortunately, nothing is too outlandish for the sheeple to believe. And for professional fear-mongers to make a profit from.

    People's Agitprop Commissar Bob has a new post out where astoundingly he does not claim that the diabetic needles were fake and the woman was actually going to use them as detonators to explode her (also faked) pregnancy. Comrade Bob seems to be unaware that his agency regards large-breasted and pregnant women as a threat to the People's Republic.
