Al-Qaeda’s New Cologne: Essence of Evil

Terrorists have been trying to do everything possible to cause destruction; from underwear bombs, shipping explosive printers, to egregiously implanting bombs in human bodies. Their new approach is a bit different from all the rest, however – there is no explosion at all.

Instead, there is a poison perfume, that once sprayed will quickly start chipping away at the wearer’s health. Saudi Arabia’s Okaz newspaper reports that al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula was recently planning on killing government officials and religious clerics by sending them these poisonous fragrances. However, the plan failed after 149 al-Qaeda suspects were arrested for planning bank robberies in an attempt to fund the noxious narrative.

Even though this attack failed before it even got a chance to begin, the idea lives on. If a bottle of cologne or perfume mysteriously arrives at your home or office, be very cautious before even thinking of smelling it.
