Major media: Better late than never

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

13 February 2008: On August 16, 2005, the Northeast Intelligence Network published the images below under the headline “Insidious Terrorist Tactic: Using “Pregnant” Women to Hide Explosives” - Islamic Terrorists to Exploit PC Weaknesses. Yesterday, the very images that were secured by contributing analyst Randy Taylor from a web portal utilized by Islamic terrorists were published in the mainstream media. Their broadcast was based on a just-issued report issued by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, warning of the use of pregnant-posing women carrying explosives in prosthetic “wombs” as depicted below:



On August 16, 2008, we reported:


By their very nature, Islamic terrorists are sick and inhumane, having twisted religious ideologies that cause them to stop at nothing to exploit the weaknesses of our security forces. Currently, we are seeing the terrorists teach new methods and tactics to accomplish their objectives of causing mass casualties.

One of the more insidious methods is to utilize a willing female to feign late-stage pregnancy and place explosives into the empty womb cavity as shown in these images. The message is clear: to exploit political correctness in the U.S. and elsewhere to bypass normal security with little notice (who would dare question the authenticity of a pregnancy?) and inflict the most causalities possible.


Following our report, we received numerous e-mails from visitors to our site and even arm-chair counter-intelligence analysts from other web sites, labeling us as alarmists and fear-mongers.

Given this week’s report, what say you now?
