2009 Underwear Bomber Plot Failed Because He Wore Same Drawers for 2 Weeks!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The 2009  `underpants bomb` plot failed because the terrorist had been wearing his explosive-laden undergarments for more than two weeks and soiled the explosives, a senior US official said.

Umar Abdulmutallab sent shockwaves through US intelligence when he successfully smuggled a bomb onto a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas day three years ago.

The British-educated Nigerian was able to light the bomb but it failed to explode, causing minor burns to the would-be bomber but sparing his fellow passengers."

Nigeria is a hellhole populated by scammers, drug traffickers, Islamic militants with a penchant for kidnapping young girls, and underwear bombers with poor personal hygiene.

The 2009 underpants bomb plot failed not because the bomb was poorly made or because of the brilliant work of homeland security, disaster was adverted due to the Nigerian bomber`s poor hygiene. His filthy and soiled underwear degraded the explosive material, and the bomb failed to ignite.

Accuse me of racial profiling if you like, but if a Nigerian passenger is sitting next to me I will demand a new seat assignment. I prefer not to sit next to an individual who smells like crap, may try to pull a scam on me at the very least, and may blow me to Kingdom Come at the very worst.

I doubt that the sexual predators in the prison where the Underwear Bomber is incarcerated care that he doesn`t change his underwear frequently, with his boyish face he`s probably violated on a regular basis.
