London: US Intelligence officials have noticed a recent surge in terror-linked discussions on the Internet, where al Qaeda Jihadist focus on finding ways to evade airport security, according to CBS News.
On one radical website, a writer invites fellow members to post information on how to bypass airport screening.

Another member asks about explosive detection devices, writing: "We have that system in place in Algiers...does anyone know if it`s capable of detecting [the flammable gas] butane?"

On another Jihadist site, a visitor questions security involving 3D scanners at British airports asking: "Can I refuse [to pass through] for religious reasons?"

A reply soon follows: "Those who wish to avoid the Heathrow scanners to take the train to Paris... and then board a plane from there."

However, the most disturbing among all is the recent discovery of a confidential TSA document on a Yemeni Web site discussing the rules for searching passengers.
