Woman Assassin charged with 20 murders


This article is about a Mexican woman who lead a contract killing gang accused of at least 20 murders. Couldn't make this stuff up if I tried. Of note are the other women pictured with her as members of her gang. Girl power gone terribly wrong...oh, man, I've got to do a gang of anti-Medusa, bad girl villains! I've been toying with the idea for a couple of years, but I can see it now!

WASHINGTON (AP) — The CIA thwarted an ambitious plot by al-Qaida's affiliate in Yemen to destroy a U.S.-bound airliner using a bomb with a sophisticated new design around the one-year anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden, The Associated Press has learned.
The plot involved an upgrade of the underwear bomb that failed to detonate aboard a jetliner over Detroit on Christmas 2009. This new bomb was also designed to be used in a passenger's underwear, but this time al-Qaida developed a more refined detonation system, U.S. officials said.
The FBI is examining the latest bomb to see whether it could have passed through airport security and brought down an airplane, officials said. They said the device did not contain metal, meaning it probably could have passed through an airport metal detector. But it was not clear whether new body scanners used in many airports would have detected it.
The would-be suicide bomber, based in Yemen, had not yet picked a target or bought his plane tickets when the CIA stepped in and seized the bomb, officials said. It's not immediately clear what happened to the alleged bomber.

....oh, man, I smell a book...what happened to the bomber? Who was he? Who did he REALLY work for? Yes, I'm totally a conspiracy theorist at heart. How else would I cook up crazy plot after crazy plot? <cue the maniacal laughter>
