Former El Al Security Chief on US Airline Checks

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

Tightened security measures have come into force for all passengers flying to the United States, following the failed attempt to blow up an airliner on Christmas Day. Under the new guidelines, airport staff are carrying out full body pat-downs on passengers travelling from countries the U.S. considers to be a security risk. They include Pakistan, Iran, Yemen and Nigeria. But are these new security rules the right ones?

Not according to Isaac Yeffet, former head of security for the Israeli airline, El Al.

In fact, he neglected to mention, that in the airport in Israel the process is even more streamlined and they do the questioning process while you are in line to the check in counter adding absolutely zero time to the whole process.
