Problem FIXED. NOW UPDATE our computer lists. But do we want to do that to all travelers to USa?

Europe Alert from The Wall Street Journal

The Dutch government said it will begin using full body scanners on flights to the U.S. within three weeks to prevent future terrorist attacks like the Christmas Day attempt by a young Nigerian.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23 years old, managed to board a Northwest Airlines flight to Detroit from Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport carrying explosives but failed to successfully detonate them.

In a preliminary report, the Dutch government says the Christmas Day bomb plot was professional but its execution was "amateurish."

An earlier Dutch investigation said all security checks were correctly carried out in Amsterdam and American authorities had cleared the passenger list.
