Mentally Disturbed Woman Claims Implant Bomb as TSA Orders New Grope Directive

Just in the nick of time. The TSA has come under a lot of scrutiny lately as outrage grows around the country over goons in gloves touching the junk of everybody from toddlers to grandmas. Then there was a suspicious if not improbable al-Qaeda underwear bomber threat to get things back on track. Now we have a French woman with a "surgically implanted device" on transatlantic flight.

Agence France-Presse fills us in:

The US Airways plane, flying from Paris, was diverted to Maine on Tuesday where the woman was taken into custody by the FBI before the Boeing 767 continued its journey to Charlotte, North Carolina.

Coming on the heels of a thwarted airline bomb plot by Al-Qaeda's Yemen branch, the incident has laid bare US worry over shifting tactics of extremists as they seek new ways — and new technologies, including non-metallic bombs — for landing a deadly blow against an American target.
