Rectum? Darn near killed-um

Sorry about another butt related blog posting but I couldn’t pass this one up.

Just an update on the story below: Apparently this guy was just a nut and no one was ever in danger but I was just thinking... If I happened to be of Middle Eastern decent and my name was Fadhel al-Maliki one of the last things I would try to do is board a plane with a magnet and wires in my butt.

Iraqi national detained at LAX with magnet in his "bum"
From Doug Hagmann, Director of the Northeast Intelligence Network:
6 March 2007: TSA officials at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) detained a 35 year-old Iraqi national at about 5:40 this morning after he set off an alarm at the passenger screening area at terminal 1. Security officers searched Fadhel Abbas al-Maliki of South Ocean Avenue in Atlantic City, New Jersey, finding wires on his body and what was described as a magnet concealed in his rectum. Al Mailki also was in possession of another, unidentified metal device which is currently being assessed and evaluated by law enforcement authorities. Fadhel al-Maliki intended to board a US Airways flight from Los Angeles to Philadelphia. Although al-Maliki was detained at the terminal, his luggage remained on the aircraft, which made an
unscheduled landing in Las Vegas for a security screening.

hee hee.

actually, i'm thinking i'm unlikely to board a plane with wires in my butt -- or even put wires in my butt in the first place -- even if my name is Lars Svenson and I'm from Sweden...

Blogball, where DO you get your ideas from? I guess in this case, from an actual happening. Another post that makes me laugh. Thanks!

I don't know what this country's coming to when a guy can't even board a plane with wires on his body and a magnet in his butt. Thanks to your timely post, I know I won't be doing 'that' again.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Breaking News!

There was some other weird stuff found in his bum. See Update below:

Al-Maliki told investigators the objects have therapeutic properties, and that he had forgotten to remove them before reaching the security checkpoint. They were described as a magnet wrapped with a piece of gum in a napkin and then coiled with wire; and some kind of round, polished stone.
This guy is defiantly bipolar. (Sorry couldn’t resist)

"a magnet wrapped with a piece of gum in a napkin and then coiled with wire; and some kind of round, polished stone."
--that's the oldest trick in the book.
