Say hello to Mr and Mrs not-so-silent bomber, Mohammed Rehman, 25 (left) and Sana Ahmed Khan, 24 (right). These two were planning a suicide bomb attack in London to mark the anniversary of the 7/7 atrocities.
It failed. Basically, because they’re bit thick…
To prove it, Rehman went onto social media under the name ‘Silent Bomber’ to ask for advise on whether he should bomb the Westgate Shopping Centre or the London Underground. This of course attracted no attention to them at all, did it?
Then he took out a payday loan to fund the chemicals and other materials he needed to build his bomb so no way they could trace that back to him then?
But of course you have to make sure that the device you are building works properly so he built a small version of it and set it off in his back garden which naturally attracted no attention at all!
Then comes the piece-de-resistance! Just to prove what a clever boy he’d been in building a bomb, he video’d it all on his mobile phone – and then put it up on Twitter FFS!
This is all a bit to serious to be a laughing matter, but if there was ever a couple who deserved an entry in the Book of Heroic Failures then it’s these two. If only all jihadists were this stupid then we’d have nothing much to worry about…
