Tom Clancy scenario - how to preven foreign planes from deliberately crashing into important US buildings?
If any of you read "Executive Orders" by author Tom Clancy, then you know what I'm talking about... (a JAL pilot crashed into the U.S. Capitol deliberately, eliminating every member of the U.S. governement, except Jack Ryan, who became the president)
Are there safeguards agains foreign airline pilots from doing what the terrorists did on 9/11? Obviously when the flight originated from overseas(Europe or Asia), it has little fuel left and can only cause smaller damages... It seems like all the attention in improving security has been directed at domestin U.S. airline opereation.
