Foreign UK Airport Workers with Access to Aircraft Not Screened
May 9, 2008
This is flat-out scary and the assessment in the article that this unfortunate loophole never represented a security threat is a joke. If it never represented a threat, then why have they indicated that this oversight needed to be correct right away?
Some thing stinks across the pond!
I don’t believe that the security experts who are paid to sweat the details just forgot that screening needed to take place. International background screening probably just wasn’t as readily available or as easily understood as it is today. As time passed, it was probably just forgotten. With the information available today, there is no excuse for not performing a more thorough search.
