Outsourcing security

Airline passengers bound for the United States faced a hodgepodge of security measures across the world on Monday, but most European airports did not appear to be following a new U.S. demand for increased screening of passengers from 14 countries.

U.S. officials in Washington said the new security measures would be started Monday, but there were few visible changes on the ground in Europe, which sends thousands of passengers on hundreds of daily flights to the United States.

In addition, few if any changes in airline procedures were reported in the 14 countries named by the U.S. as security risks, although officials in Saudi Arabia said extra security personnel had been placed at the airport.

Why do we outsource airport security?

No one should enter the U.S. or board a U.S. vessel until screened by U.S. security.
