Thompson Statement on Cargo Plane Suspicious Packages

October 29, 2010 (WASHINGTON) Today, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, released the following regarding the investigation of suspicious packages being found on cargo planes bound for the United States:



I have been informed by the Transportation Security Administration about a potential threat to air cargo carriers. While I understand that no explosives have been found throughout the air cargo system, there is concern about a suspicious package that was identified on a cargo flight that originated in Yemen. This is an ongoing investigation, and I will be in continued communication with TSA and the Department of Homeland Security in assessing this threat and the security measures in place to address it.
