The article focuses on the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in the U.S. which is facing odds with government investigators regarding whether all cargoes on passenger planes have met the 100 percent screening deadline. It notes that the TSA does not expect to meet the international screening mandate until 2013. It also notes that negotiating agreements with foreign governments on cargo screening programs that can be verified by the TSA is the main obstacle in meeting the mandate.
