ABSTRACT
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the travel industry are engaging in an increasingly confusing, for the traveler at least, power struggle over several security initiatives. Meanwhile, major trading partners with the U.S. are advising their residents to simply avoid the hassles of entering the States and spend their tourism dollars elsewhere. IJET Travel Risk Management says in a new report that the computer-assisted passenger prescreening system, which would collect personal data on a traveler, including financial records, "is dead in its current form." The Transportation Security Administration operated in secrecy for too long, it says, and now needs to get the support of other government officials and the industry to put a streamlined aviation security system in place.
