With increasing privacy violations at the airport, the hot topic on many people's minds is -- where will the TSA stop?
There's been growing speculation about terrorists trying to smuggle explosives by inserting them in their rectum. A Saudi suicide bomber already smuggled a bomb in his anal cavity. A terrorist, in theory could smuggle a bomb onto a plane in their anal cavity and then remove it and detonate it.
Current generation scanners are likely not capable of detecting low-density explosives inside the anal cavity.
If such an attack is attempted, the TSA may have to opt for even greater "enhancements" to its already intimate screening protocol.
And in reality there's probably plenty of vulnerabilities that haven't been thought of. What is clear is that the public likely faces a choice between continuing to give up their freedoms or drawing a hard line now and resisting the current protocols."
