Feature on CAPPS II

Document Date: September 5, 2003


The proposed airline profiling program CAPPS II (for Computer Assisted Passenger Profiling System) was terminated in August 2004 and replaced by a similar program called Secure Flight.

CAPPS II was a proposal to give the government a new role unprecedented in American life: running background checks on Americans who fly, and giving them a ""risk score."" Secretive, lacking due process protections for people who are unfairly tagged, and yet easy for terrorists to circumvent, this program once put in place will grow into a most un-American system of internal border controls.
