"We've got excellent security procedures here in the United States. We look at all aspects of passenger screening, checked baggage, we look at air cargo screening requirements," Robert Liscouski, Implant Sciences' President, stated on BBC World News. "We have substantial security for air cargo going on in the United States, which is domestically originating. It's subject to physical search, x-ray search, the use of explosives trace detection, and dogs for certain cargo. So the big concern comes in with cargo that originates overseas and comes on passenger aircraft to the U.S. They will be reviewing those procedures very carefully."
