Michael Greenberger, CHHS Director, Explains Flaws in Regulation of Passports
CHHS Founder and Director Michael Greenberger spoke to USA Today and questioned how foreign governments deal with stolen passports. The differences in how countries screen airline passengers has come under scrutiny after a Boeing 777 originating in Malaysia went missing on Saturday with two persons on board who used stolen passports. Greenberger criticized the fact that only some countries check passports being used against Interpol's database of stolen passports. In the United States the 9/11 commission recommended biometric passports in 2004 to add a layer of security but due to cost no government has implemented them.
