Air travelers may be assigned color codes
September 9, 2003
Passengers will be assigned one of three codes, based in part on their travel plans, traveling companions and the date the ticket was purchased. Sources say those coded "green" will easily pass through security checkpoints. Others will be coded "yellow" and face additional screening.
Critics fear the new system will be far too intrusive, and that some people will be mistakenly "flagged" and even falsely arrested.
