According to this opinion piece on The Atlantic by Jeffrey Goldberg, the threat of terrorism comes not only from explosive devices on people, but those in people.

From the article: "[The United States] has not yet experienced the terror of a cavity bomb -- a bomb inserted into the rectum or vagina of a suicide terrorist -- but this is what experts, in and out of government, fear is coming."
