New terror threat: 'body bombs'

A chilling new threat has emerged, and terror experts say it's something terrorists could try in an effort to avoid detection at airports and other locations in the United States: taking explosives and surgically inserting them inside a terrorist's body.

    What I think is anyone that is willing to kill themselves or others is a few bricks short of a load. As far as Homeland just wanting to keep people busy really ted? I mean haven't they been doing that for years already? The government wasting money and wanting to create fake terror lists just to give someone a reason to fly around the world and burn up tax payers money? Really Ted? Seriously?

    And yes I said I liked that pick and then look what they did to GMCR today in after hours. I SAID CMGR!!! NOT GMCR these guys cant understand a word that comes out of my mouth.

    The fact that people would have either a bomb surgically implanted in body cavities or swallow them etc is so far left of extreme I dont know how to answer that one.

    What they need is Mind readers at the TSA not better bomb screeners.
