    Al Qaeda Bombers Learn from Drug Smugglers

    New Technique of Storing Bomb Materials Inside Body Cavity Nearly Kills a Saudi Prince

    (CBS) Al Qaeda has developed a new tactic that allows suicide bombers to breach even the tightest security, as CBS News correspondent Sheila MacVicar reports.

    Inside a Saudi palace, the scene was the bloody aftermath of an al Qaeda attack in August aimed at killing Prince Mohammed Bin Nayef, head of Saudi Arabia's counter terrorism operations.

    To get his bomb into this room, Abdullah Asieri, one of Saudi Arabia's most wanted men, avoided detection by two sets of airport security including metal detectors and palace security. He spent 30 hours in the close company of the prince's own secret service agents - all without anyone suspecting a thing.

    How did he do it?

    Taking a trick from the narcotics trade - which has long smuggled drugs in body cavities - Asieri had a pound of high explosives, plus a detonator inserted in his rectum.

    This was a meticulously planned operation with al Qaeda once again producing something new: this time, the Trojan bomber.

    The blast left the prince lightly wounded - a failure as an assassination, but as an exercise in defeating security, it was perfect.

    The bomber persuaded the prince he wanted to leave al Qaeda, setting a trap.

    Al Qaeda has an animated movie showing the meeting between the bomber and the prince. Asieri says more senior al Qaeda figures want to surrender and convinces the prince to talk to them on a cell phone.

    In the conversation recorded by al Qaeda, you hear a beep in the middle of two identical phrases that are repeated by the bomber and his handler.

    Explosives experts tell CBS News that beep was likely a text message activating the bomb concealed inside Asieri.

    The Trojan bomber hands the phone to Prince Mohammed. He's standing next to him, and 14 seconds later, he detonates.

    "This is the nightmare scenario," said Chris Yates, an aviation security consultant.

    On a plane at altitude, the effects of such a bomb could be catastrophic. And there is no current security system that could stop it.

    "Absolutely nothing other than to require people to strip naked at the airport," said Yates.

    And al Qaeda says it will share its new technique via the Internet very soon. There is nothing that can stop that either.

    See, now, I didn't think you meant your title literally...

    That has got to be uncomfortable. Was this a liquid or a solid explosive you think, and does it really matter? There are questions to be answered.

    I would imagine is solid. Hard to keep liquids in there without them "running" out.

    Unfortunately the TSA will never allow the kind of profiling that would allow this to happen. They'll ask a 90 year old grandma to go into the rubber glove room and let the 25 y/o middle eastern guy sweating bullets through the checkpoint, lest someone think they are profiling.
