Loophole leaves terror threat in U.S

There are 1 comment on the www.chron.com story from Jun 13, 2011, titled Loophole leaves terror threat in U.S. In it, www.chron.com reports that:

Nearly a decade after five suicide hijackers with expired U.S. visas helped 14 comrades carry out the Sept. 11 attacks, the Department of Homeland Security and Congress have yet to come up with a fail-safe way to check foreign visitors in and out of the U.S., leaving an unknown number unaccounted for inside the country.

A 14-month inquiry by Congress' investigative Government Accountability Office concluded the absence of a state-of-the-art system to track visitors' departures with fraud-proof biometrics such as digital fingerprints is leaving the nation exposed to potential attack by individuals who legally enter through 327 airports and other ports of entry - and then stay beyond expiration of the routine six-month visitor visa.
