The White House, President George W. Bush

Press Briefing by Scott McClellan
The James S. Brady Briefing Room

[ ... ]

Q Scott, we have -- the Homeland Security Department -- loophole in the immigration policy that allows North Americans to -- in the U.S. as long as their final destination is elsewhere. What else is the President going to do to combat what he calls the real threat of future hijackings --

MR. McCLELLAN: You're talking about the transit without visa program. That is something the Department of Homeland Security is reviewing. At the same time, I think steps are already being taken by the Department of Homeland Security to make sure that passengers on these international flights receive closer scrutiny during the screening process. But there are still people, killers, members of al Qaeda that want to harm America and want to harm the American people. That is why we are waging a global war on terrorism.

The best way to address this threat and to address these issues is to go after these killers where they are and bring them to justice before they can reach our shores and carry out such attacks. But we have taken a number of steps to improve aviation security. We have strengthened the cockpits by putting in bulletproof cockpit doors, reinforced doors. We have taken steps to improve the screening process by hiring federal screeners and passenger screeners. We have also taken steps by putting federal air marshals on flights, as well, so that the American people can know that we're doing everything we can to protect them from these kind of threats.
