It would have been interesting to know if anyone else in this Islamic chat room took issue with the posting of the video, saying (as we always here from Muslim apologists in America) that “Islam forbids suicide.” Somehow I doubt it. From MSNBC, with thanks to Eschwapp:
Posted in a militant Islamic chat room three days ago, a stunningly detailed 26-minute video on how to make a sophisticated suicide bomb vest, along with a demonstration of its kill range, using a mannequin.
Titled “The Explosive Belt for Martyrdom Operations,” the video obtained by NBC News demonstrates how to make an explosive vest that would be tough to detect, mostly from common off-the-shelf materials.
“The most disturbing thing about this video is that it exists,” says NBC analyst and retired military intelligence officer Lt. Col. Rick Francona.
He says the video would be extremely valuable to any terrorist.
“Every military commander in Iraq and Afghanistan should be aware of this,” says Francona. “This video shows someone how to more effectively attack American troops.”
Experts believe the video was made by a Palestinian group.
“The video was accompanied by a note that explained it was there for the purposes of aiding the brothers, the fighting brothers, in cities in central Iraq,” says NBC terror analyst Evan Kohlmann.
