Fadhel al-Maliki, an Iraqi national who lives in Atlantic City, New Jersey, was preparing to board a US Airways flight from Los Angeles to Philadelphia when he set off an alarm on a metal detector. During a search of Maliki’s person, security personnel discovered he was wearing some wires. A subsequent body cavity search revealed a magnet inside his rectum. Naturally, a bomb squad was called to examine the suspicious item found in Mr. Maliki’s orifice and local media reports said the object was at some point determined to be a magnet.

“He was secreting these items in a body cavity and that was a great concern because there were also some electric wires associated with that body cavity,” Larry Fetters, security director for the Transportation Security Administration at the airport, told reporters. Fetters also noted, “There never was a threat,? and that the police and the FBI were called in from “an abundance of caution” because Maliki was “so bizarre in his behavior.”

Well, the obvious question has to be asked. Was this some kind of test run for a terrorist plot, or part of some sort of deviant sexual turn-on? I’ll let you decide.
