Terrorists Armed with Hypnosis

Is it just me, or does this sound like a really bad idea for a James Bond film?

Amid fears that Indonesia's most wanted terrorist will strike again, some police have a new theory: Noordin Top is using hypnotism to elude capture and recruit more suicide bombers.

. . . .

"A village chief fell unconscious after kissing the hand of a man resembling Noordin," one policeman told the latest edition of Tempo news magazine.

The magazine said the chief's mind went blank "like he was hypnotised" after meeting a "tabib", or traditional healer, who looked like Noordin.

One officer said police believed even a skilled religious preacher would have difficulty finding so many followers willing to kill themselves for a cause.

Link (via Fortean Times). Well, they may have hypnosis, but at least we have waterboarding. Sorry, I mean waterboarding.
