CAPPSII Testing on Back Burner

CAPPSII Testing on Back Burner

Plans to continue testing the controversial Computer Assisted Passenger Prescreening System, or CAPPS II, on commercial airlines have been temporarily suspended, according to the Transportation Security Administration.

CAPPS II would require background checks on all airline passengers after they book their airline tickets. Passengers' credit reports, banking and criminal records would be reviewed as part of the checks.

Privacy advocates have opposed the system, saying that probing every passenger's criminal, financial and credit records was a draconian measure without any verifiable security benefits.

I find it very amusing that dbaker, Nugget, and tycoonjack who run the site don't support CAPS II, yet advertisements for Delta (an airline instituting CAPS II) can be found on ityt.
