WASHINGTON (AP) _ The U.S. government is warning airlines that some terrorists are considering surgically implanting explosives into humans to carry out attacks.

There is no intelligence pointing to a specific plot, but the U.S. has shared this information with executives at domestic and international carriers.

The Transportation Security Administration says that people traveling to the U.S. from overseas may experience additional screening at airports.

Placing explosives and explosive components inside humans is not a new idea. But a U.S. security official says there is new intelligence pointing to a fresh interest in using this tactic.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive security information.

The British soldier snatched and executed by the Taliban yesterday was Highlander Scott McLaren.

Highlander McLaren of 4th Battalion, The Royal Regiment of Scotland, disappeared from a Nato checkpoint in central Helmand province yesterday, sparking a massive 17-hour search.

It was claimed today that the body of the 20-year-old, from the Sighthill area of Edinburgh, was paraded around like a trophy by his captors.

The serviceman, who had wandered off alone from a checkpoint, is said to have been captured by insurgents from a Helmand village near his base.

He was then killed amid unconfirmed claims that he was tortured and beaten before his corpse was paraded in front of Taliban chiefs, an Afghan district councillor claimed.

REALLY, what's Obama going to do about this? NEGOTIATE with the Taliban? Uh, yeah. That's what he says he's doing.

Team Obama “arrested” an al-Qaeda terrorist in April and held him on a boat for two months to “ask him questions.” Then they read the al-Qaeda terrorist his Miranda rights (because we’re all global citizens). This week they brought the al-Qaeda terrorist to New York City for his civilian trial.

It’s an Obama world.

If you still don't believe Islamic terrorists are evil, and will stop at nothing to spread their particular brand of Islam throughout the west, you're a lost cause.

You can't fight this with trials in the U.S. and you can't fight this if you're still refusing to call it what it really is.

Of course, we played loud music for detainees (the Red Hot Chili Peppers, if I recall) and that was just TORTURE. Wouldn't want to torture these creeps, would we?

Question for Democrats: If your kid had explosives planted inside him by these monsters, would you torture them then? Probably not. Pathetic.
