Energy Drinks and MP3 Players

Gatorade and an iPod. Who would have thought those two items and others like them could be used to take down an airplane?

Terrorists planned to use MP3 players and energy drinks to blow up as many as 10 jetliners bound for the United States, authorities said Thursday.

A senior congressional source said it’s believed the plotters planned to mix a “British version of Gatorade” with a gel-like substance to make an explosive that they would possibly trigger with an MP3 player or cell phone.

Will we now finally wake up and understand the lengths at which these fanatics will go to kill innocent people?

UPDATE: ABC News says terrorists planned to use energy drinks and the flash mechanism from disposable cameras to ignite the explosives.
