Long lines formed at international airports across the United States on Friday after U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s computer system broke down and dramatically slowed the processing of thousands of people arriving from abroad, including U.S. citizens. Officials say they would not stop processing passengers, but said they had to switch to a slower, alternative process.


Customs and Border Protection computer outage leads to slowdown at international airports across the United States

They have switched to manually processing passengers. Not sure what this means, but it could be a more comprehensive check of person and papers.

They found them


U.S. customs computer outage resolved, computers 'back up and running'


A government official told ABC News that there's no indication that Friday's interruption was a malicious attack on the network "at this time." Passengers in many airports were being processed manually, so travelers throughout the United States should expect longer than normal wait times. Houston's Bush Airport at one point said it was experiencing delays of up to 75 minutes. The outage only impacted airports, according to a CBP official, not other ports of entry like seaports or land border crossings. The outage did not impact flight departures.

Huh, they weren't looking for anyone after all. Well, good that the computer issue was taken care of.

Just because they stopped doing something, doesn't mean they weren't doing it

Meh, our weapon systems aren't protected as well as they should be from cyber attacks and I imagine those are some of the most protected systems (within the systems under public/state protection).

Processing people departing the US, by manual "alternative methods", would allow a dodgy fake passport for Epstein to not go through the computer system.

You need more than a nine foot ceiling drop to break multiple neck bones with a bedsheet.

It was only people coming into the US, so I don't think they were looking for JE.
