The Transportation Security Administration's cargo screening mandates will now apply to international cargo as well, the agency said.

The requirements, that 50 percent of cargo shipped on passenger airlines be screened by February 2009 and 100 percent screened by August 2010, had initially only been required for flights originating at U.S. airports.

Ed Kelly, the TSA's air cargo manager speaking last month at The International Air Cargo Association's forum in Kuala Lumpur, said the agency will now screen international inbound cargo as well."

I'd love to see how this is going to work
