Depraved: Husband-and-Wife Terrorist Team Planned Smuggled Bomb In Baby's Bottle -- With Baby As Prop, Of Course

We love life, they said, whereas they love death.

They seem to have meant it.

A HUSBAND and wife arrested in the British terror raids allegedly planned to take their six-month-old baby on a mid-air suicide mission.

Scotland Yard police are quizzing Abdula Ahmed Ali, 25, and his 23-year-old wife Cossor over suspicions they were to use their baby's bottle to hide a liquid bomb.

The theory is one of the reasons security chiefs are now insisting mothers taste babies' milk at check-in desks before allowing them to take bottles aboard flights.

The pair are among up to 23 suspects being questioned over a plot to bring down nine airliners over five US cities, killing thousands of people in the air and on the ground.

The questioning of the group comes as British Government sources yesterday revealed many of those suspects posed as relief workers to travel to al-Qaeda training camps in Pakistan.

It has also been revealed that security services are secretly monitoring "dozens" of fresh plots involving hundreds of suspects which could be unleashed at any time.

One government source said at least 30 priority cases were under urgent investigation.

" All those 30 are seen as serious, determined attacks that will happen unless we stop them," the source said.

Like I said, this baby-bottle exception strikes me as a lethal loophole. Just having a parent taste it is hardly proof it's actually milk; a person can train himself to avoid wincing at anything less than a powerful acid or base.

I really, really think we might want to consider the possibility of airplane stocks of formula only.
