Human Bombs

This is what they will do and it will succeed, the first couple times.  I don't know what we will do after that - x-ray machines in order to fly.  And when we move to profile, they will find a non-typical carrier and force them through some means, to carry out the evil act.  I tend to believe it will be done very nearly without the knowledge of the carrier.  They render them unconscious, implant them, do not permit the person to regain consciousness for a period of time until healing as begun, and then ... its done.   They could set up an elaborate story how the carrier ended up with a closure mark.  Or simply no answer.  They may use one of their own the first couple times and by the time we catch on, it will be too late.  Hundreds of millions spent on useless machines, untold aggravation and loathing, distrust toward our government by its citizens and nothing they can do will help.

US: Terrorists look to implant bombs in humans

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. government has warned domestic and international airlines that some terrorists are considering surgically implanting explosives into humans to carry out attacks, The Associated Press has learned.

There is no intelligence pointing to a specific plot, but the U.S. shared its concerns last week with executives at domestic and international carriers.

People traveling to the U.S. from overseas may experience additional screening at airports because of the threat, according to the Transportation Security Administration.

"These measures are designed to be unpredictable, so passengers should not expect to see the same activity at every international airport," TSA spokesman Nick 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."

Placing explosives and explosive components inside humans to hide bombs and evade security measures is not a new idea. But there is new intelligence pointing to a fresh interest in using this tactic, a U.S. security official told the AP. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive security information.

When the U.S. government receives information suggesting terror tactics that could threaten commercial aviation, the TSA alerts companies domestically and abroad. Last December, the U.S. received intelligence that al-Qaida's Yemen branch was considering hiding explosives inside insulated beverage containers to carry them on airplanes. That warning was shared with domestic and foreign airlines so that security could be on the lookout, even though there was no specific plot.

Airport security has increased markedly since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. But terrorists remain interested in attacking aviation and continue to adapt to the new security measures by trying to develop ways to circumvent them.
