Why Allowing Burkas To Be Worn Is A Security Risk

DVIDS (defense video & imagery distribution system) reported today that a senior Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan leader and two associates were captured during a nighttime security operation in Kunduz District, Kunduz province, Afghanistan yesterday. 

The article reports:

“The leader, who also supported the Taliban network, was responsible for planning attacks against the Afghan National Police. He also facilitated suicide bomb operations and coordinated attacks against other Afghan security forces.”

The leader attempted to disguise himself as a female by wearing a burka.  This is not the first time the burka has been used to disguise a terrorist to escape from American or Afghan forces.  The burka has also been used to hide suicide bombs used in attacks in Iraq.  Frankly, you can hide a lot under a burka.
