U.S. Asks Israel for Security Advice

After Christmas Day bombing, Israel knows best

Print Email

The Homeland Security Department is already consulting Israel, whose airport and plane security is famously stellar, over how to head off attacks like the one that almost occurred two weeks ago. Today, Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Jane Holl Lute met with Yisrael Katz, Israel’s transportation minister; Katz promised to share the benefit of his country’s extensive knowledge and experience. Afterward, Lute visited Ben Gurion International, outside Tel Aviv, to inspect Unipass, a new biometric system there that enables fliers to complete much of Israel’s extensive pre-flight security procedure by themselves. We have to get us some of that.
