New airport policy created for children
Homeland Security Secretary Janet A. Napolitano says the government will be rolling out a different airport pat-down policy for children under 12 in the coming months.
Ms. Napolitano says the traveling public can expect to see some of these changes in the coming months.
Some travelers and privacy advocates have complained that children, who don’t appear to pose terror threats, are subject to intimate pat downs that involve Transportation Security Administration screeners touching private areas. Children under 12 will also be spared the hassle of taking off their shoes as they go through security, Ms. Napolitano said.
Republican lawmaker says she’s not bashing U.N.
The Florida Republican’s proposal would push the U.N. to adopt a voluntary funding system and would withhold 50 percent of the U.S. nonvoluntary regular budget contributions if, after two years, 80 percent of the U.N. regular budget is not funded on a voluntary rather than assessed basis.
In the 2010 budget year the U.S. provided $7.7 billion to the U.N. for its regular budget, peacekeeping and other programs.
