If you thought the TSA was bad before…

then take a look at this.

The Los Angeles Times said the US administration had warned airlines that extremist groups were considering surgically implanting explosives into people to try to beat enhanced airport security measures.

Passengers flying to the United States could now face even tougher screening procedures, a spokesman for the Transportation Security Administration, Nicholas Kimball, told the daily.

Of course, anyone with two brain cells to rub together has known this was coming for at least the last ten years (which means the government probably only figured it out last week). And $deity help anyone flying shortly after any kind of surgery.

I expect that this will not end well.

  1. Well, if you have ever had a surgical implant, an amputation, a tattoo, a piercing, or any of a myriad of other operations and operation-like things done to your body, it is fair to say that you should probably count on never leaving this country ever again, for fear of never being able to re-enter.

    Eventually, the same will be said for flying in general.
