Readout of President Obama’s Briefing with DHS Secretary Napolitano and TSA Administrator Pistole on Transportation Security

 

President Obama today met with DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano and TSA Administrator John S. Pistole to review the many enhancements that have been made to both aviation and surface transportation security. Today’s briefing was held in conjunction with the President’s regularly scheduled counterterrorism and homeland security briefing and was not prompted by any specific or credible threat.

 

The President was briefed on DHS’ strategic plans, including near-term efforts to improve security and minimize risk with a focus on mass transit and passenger rail security. A significant aspect of TSA’s security enhancements over the past year have included improved technology and procedures, strengthened partnerships with transportation stakeholders and expanded engagement with the international community.

 

The President stressed that DHS emphasis on mass transit and passenger rail security measures is a priority and again asked Secretary Napolitano and Administrator Pistole if they need anything.
