TSA Warns of "Human Bombs"

Does this mean we will all be stripped naked and checked for recent surgical scars before boarding an airplane?
(Politico)- Transportation security officials are warning airlines on Wednesday that “human bomb” terrorists may try to use surgically implanted explosives to blow up planes.

Though there is no intelligence about a specific plot, the Transportation Security Administration is nonetheless urging domestic and international carriers to be aware of the potential threat.

The warnings are part of an effort “to provide greater insights into recent intelligence indicating the continued interest of terrorists to target aviation,” TSA press secretary Nick Kimball said in a statement.

TSA's naked scanners won't find an implanted device. To see that deep inside our bodies, TSA will need to irradiate us until frequent fliers start glowing in the dark.This points out the ludicrousness of our current airline strategy. Randomly groping grandmothers and small children won't stop determined terrorists. The best bet is to use profiling and in-depth interviews. That is the system the Israeli's use.
