This may not be far from the truth.  Engineers are already developing
technologies to do a quick electronic "strip search" at airport
checkpoints.  One of the big nightmares for the security pros is a
terrorist with a plastic explosive charge concealed in a body cavity.

When you think about it, the fuss over airport security is mostly a
(vastly expensive) PR exercise.  There are probably many ways to defeat
the airport security checkpoints.  I've thought of several that would
still work, and I'm sure the terrorists have, too.  Or the bad guys will
simply choose other vehicles, other targets.  It's actually surprising to
me that we have had so FEW attacks of the magnitude of 9/11 or Oklahoma
