According to Darlene Superville of the Associated Press, Obama scheduled a meeting Tuesday afternoon with high ranking officials. In her article Superville states:
"The government also has added dozens of names to its lists of suspected terrorists and those barred from U.S.-bound flights. The addition of names to the government's terrorist watch list and the no-fly list came after U.S. officials scrutinized a larger database of suspected terrorists, an intelligence official said Monday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the individual was not authorized to speak publicly.
People on the watch list are subject to additional scrutiny before they are allowed to enter this country, while anyone on the no-fly list is barred from boarding aircraft in or headed for the United States.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a 23-year-old Nigerian who claims ties to al-Qaida, remained in federal custody, charged with trying to destroy the Northwest Airlines flight as it approached Detroit. He is alleged to have smuggled an explosive device on board the aircraft and set if off, but the device sparked only a fire and not the intended explosion.
Abdulmutallab's name was in the U.S. database of about 550,000 suspected terrorists, but was not on a list that would have subjected him to additional security screening or kept him from boarding the flight altogether. That omission prompted a review of the National Counterterrorism Center's massive Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment (TIDE) database."
The forthcoming adjustments to the already tedious airline travel regime will hopefully reflect real security measures and not be a reflection of the 'alergic reaction' that we have experienced heretofore regarding matters of security since the tragedy of 9/11.
