- An Air France flight from Paris to Washington, D.C., was diverted to Maine this week when it was discovered that a person on the “no-fly” list was aboard. It was the latest case in which “no fly” passengers were identified too late to prevent them from boarding. Professor Greenberger says this latest incident is another indication that multilateral negotiations with the European countries are needed to solve the problem.

Usually, it's worked out with greater civility," says Professor Dash.

The conclusion shows that human error played a larger role than originally thought in the botched investigation. Professor Greenberger is quoted and sees the panel's report as an embarrassment to the Bush administration.
