Terrorists Planning on Poisioning Salad Bars and Buffets?

(Daily Mail)- Al Qaeda terrorists planned to poison food at multiple US hotels and restaurants over a single weekend, it has been revealed this morning.

The ‘credible’ plot involved slipping the poisons cyanide and ricin into salad bars and buffets, according to CBS news.

The terrorist group behind the failed ‘ink cartridge’ attacks on cargo planes in October were said to have hatched the plan.

Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula branded the plot ‘Operation Haemorrhage’.

Militants say the plot consists of ‘attacking the enemy with smaller but more frequent operations’ to ‘add a heavy economic burden to an already faltering economy’.

Will that stop you from eating at one?

  • Oh, so terrorism IS still a very real threat to us. I thought Obama and his minions said there were no more threats. Wait! So, Obama LIED?! Naw, no way! I don't eat at them anyway, so no this won't dissaude me from what I already don't do. Good post, by the way, savage.

  • I don't do buffets. It's difficult, if not impossible, to maintain proper temperature of heated items, And then, you deal with the people touching the serving spoons. And then you deal with low paid, uncaring people dealing with them.

    That being said, I will warn the managers at work. We have a famous salad bar.

  • Buffets and salad bars are already nasty so how would we know it was an attack or someone didn't just wash their I am not living my life in fear but I do avoid places that have buffets and salad bars stomach bombs already. Only fine dining for me if there is a credible threat they are targeting my favorite place then I might worry.
