Lieberman to hold aviation security hearing

Lieberman's office said Thursday the hearing would "examine the development of new technologies used in screening airline passengers, detecting suspicious cargo, and uncovering potential terrorist threats."

"This is the last in a series of hearings the Committee has held to examine the country’s improved preparedness since 9/11 and what vulnerabilities still remain," Lieberman's office said in the announcement.

The hearing will take place next Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. in the Dirksen Senate Office Building.
