    Internal memo advises tightening aircraft security during holidays WASHINGTON -- An internal Homeland Security Department memo obtained by WorldNetDaily advises airports and air carriers to tighten security over passenger aircraft and air cargo during the holiday season. U.S. officials explain that air cargo and the back side of airports – known as the ramp, where jets are serviced – are still relatively vulnerable to terrorism more than two years after al-Qaida terrorists hijacked and crashed four jumbo jets on the East Coast. Based on recent al-Qaida chatter, U.S. intelligence remains concerned that the terrorist group plans to use jets to...

    WASHINGTON -- Increasing numbers of Middle Easterners are ducking a new anti-terrorist screening system by coming to America on passports from "low-risk" nations such as France, which participate in the federal Visa Waiver Program, immigration officials warn. The controversial program -- still in effect after Sept. 11, despite growing calls here for its elimination -- allows foreign travelers from 28 nations to enter the U.S. for business or tourism for up to 90 days without obtaining the documentation law enforcement needs to screen out foreign threats. Adding to worries, passport fraud in some of these countries -- namely France and...
