The government has warned airlines that terrorists are considering surgically implanting explosives into people in an attempt to circumvent screening procedures, according to U.S. officials.
There is no indication of an immediate plot, but the new information could lead to additional screening procedures at the nation’s airports. Existing scanners would not necessarily detect bombs implanted under a person’s skin, experts said. ...
A spokesman for the Transportation Security Administration, Nicholas Kimball, said that passengers flying to the United States are likely to face additional screening measures.
"These measures are designed to be unpredictable, so passengers should not expect to see the same activity at every international airport," Kimball said. "Measures may include interaction with passengers, in addition to the use of other screening methods such as pat-downs and the use of enhanced tools and technologies."
Presumably, any woman with fake boobs can now expect a thorough groping. But why stop there? Why not anal probing? Seriously, how much more bullshit are we going to accept from the TSA? At what point do we stand with Ben Franklin and say that "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor safety"?
