Hold on, Lan! Put on your thinking cap for a minute!

It's ironic that you don't name the source in which you read
that. Is that source too unreliable to give it credit in a
public forum? When you quote such a ridiculous claim you should
name the source and let us evaluate it for ourselves.

Don't you realize that what likely happened was a simple
typographic error? What probably was originally meant was,
"...Northwest Airlines has admitted sending personal information
about their passengers to NSA [not NASA] without the passengers
knowing about it. Either an 'A' was accidentally omitted or an
incompetent reporter was writing it and didn't know that there
is a universe of difference between NSA and NASA.

Please give a little deep thought to things before you
unintentionally promote incorrect information. The National
Aeronautics and Space Administration is not involved in such
matters, but NSA (National Security Agency) certainly is
collecting airline passenger information and I, for one, am very
glad they are doing so and hope that all airlines are sharing
passenger information with them.
