From EPIC: “The Transportation Security Administration has abandoned plans to use information from data aggregators to check airline passengers’ backgrounds. TSA made the decision shortly before a working group issued a scathing report (19 pages, PDF) on the program. Last year, an EPIC FOIA request revealed (4 pages, PDF) that Axciom proposed to water down federal privacy laws so that it could sell data to the government for traveler screening.
