nationwide customs processing systems outage. >> other airports were washington, dulles, and fort lauderdale. and other others. customs agents had to access national security databases and all travelers were screened during that outage. >> what happened here? i spoke earlier with our aviation analyst. >> reporter: the problem here is that everything gets delayed because you're not just looking at one computer screen. there's a delicately interlaced system. when it works it gives them a tremendous amount of information of who is on the flight, who is coming in, who is in front of them. when they last entered, all these different pieces of information, and without that interlaced system, they have to get certain parts of it produced on paper, for instance, the list of people inbound on a particular flight or from other sources, so they're probably not having any problems with doing

all the normal things that are done. it just takes twice as long at least, sometimes three to four times as long. it gets to be a pretty big deal if you have a global industry and are used to zipping through using the global entry machines. those won't be working and so now everybody is going through the regular lines which, themselves are delayed. you could be looking at an additional hour or two before you get out of the airport. this means that anybody with a domestic connection may well be in trouble. the global entry is one of those systems that has to depend on the main interlaced computer capabilities of cbp. if they go down, if the whole system goes down to any extent, the machines that give you the capability of coming in with global entry will probably go down too. right now this is guess work. we don't know for sure, but more than likely the inconvenience was not only for regular passengers going through the
3:04 am
regular chutes but also those with the enhanced inspection programs, global entry being one, to where they can kind of clear themselves. so far there's no indication that sabotage could be involved. of course, until the final post mortem is done, it's premature to declare it, but more than likely, this being a very closed system, it's highly unlikely there's a system with sabotage or somebody accessing the database from outside. the fact that this is one of the busiest travel days of the year including international travel also probably augers well for the fact that the system can get overloaded or at least has been used to a great extent at a higher level than you would normally have during a normal week. consequently if there's a time for it to break down, not only is this the most convenient, but it's probably the most likely. >> our thanks to john nantz. >> can you imagine?
