The end of the TSA?

Now that Al-Qaeda has found a way to surgically implant explosives and there is no way to scan for this kind of bomb, the time is coming when another plane, or more than one will fall from the skies in flames.  As long as jihad is upheld as a requirement for all Muslims the terror will never stop.

This is another reason that I will not fly ever again.

Report: Al-Qaida doctors trained to implant bombs in humans
Western intelligence agencies believe that al-Qaida doctors have been trained to implant bombs inside the bodies of suicide bombers, Britain's Sunday Times reported.
The doctors, thought to have been trained by a man who worked with the top bomb-maker for al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), have the ability to put explosive compounds in breasts and abdomens of suicide bombers, the newspaper reported without citing its sources.
The lead doctor was thought to have been killed in a drone attack earlier this year and likely worked with the master bomber-maker, Ibrahim al-Asiri, according to the newspaper.
The CIA want to track down the group of doctors, the newspaper reported. 
"There is a transferable skill and there is still some concern," said a Western security official who spoke to The Sunday Times on condition of anonymity.
Experts said explosive compounds such as pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN) could be surgically implanted in an aspiring suicide bomber, who would them allow the wounds to heal, according to the newspaper. Body scanners in most airports around the world would not be able to detect the device, which could be detonated by injection, the newspaper added.
The news follows revelations on Monday that that AQAP tried to arm a suicide bomber with a non-metallic device that was an upgraded version of an "underwear bomb" that was carried on to a Detroit-bound plane on Christmas Day 2009, but failed to detonate.
