\Passenger Screening Gets 'Incomplete'
Yahoo! News - Passenger Screening Gets 'Incomplete': "The government's latest computerized airline passenger screening program doesn't adequately protect travelers' privacy, according to a congressional report that could further delay a project considered a priority after the Sept. 11 attacks.
Congress last year passed a law that said the Transportation Security Administration could spend no money to implement the program, called Secure Flight, until the Government Accountability Office reported that it met 10 conditions. Those include privacy protections, accuracy of data, oversight, cost and safeguards to ensure the system won't be abused or accessed by unauthorized people.
The GAO found nine of the 10 conditions hadn't yet been met and questioned whether Secure Flight would ultimately work."
