The latest news to keep you scared would make the Joker proud.
The New York Times reports that the Department of Homeland Security "has identified a potential threat from terrorists who may surgically implant explosives or explosive components in humans to conduct terrorist attacks." Of course, confidential sources will not say how this intelligence was gathered: "one senior Homeland Security Department official said that the new intelligence originally surfaced about a month ago, had been vetted since then and appeared to be linked to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula."
So start preparing for airport screening procedures becoming more invasive.
This new threat comes on the heels of a Texas bill to criminalize TSA pat-downs and widespread outrage at a TSA agent groping a 6 year old. I'm sure it's purely coincidental.
