Flight Passenger Screening

If you flew within the United States during June of this year, your passenger record may soon be sent to the Transportation Security Administration. The TSA will test a new airline passenger screening system that scans both terrorist watch lists as well as classified information. We talk about the latest program to screen airline passengers and prevent terrorists from boarding commerical aircraft.
