If what the Daily Beast is saying is correct, then serious questions are going to have to be answered, and maybe, just maybe Biaritzsurf your right that these engines should be grounded until such time as the cause is confirmed not to be an inherent fault with the engine, or reassurance can be made of a fix. However it needs to be a decision for the FAA, and if what the report you link to is right, I imagine it will happen shortly. The repercussions for GE and indeed the whole airline industry using those engines will be huge.
