U.S., EU Fail to Reach Passenger Data Deal

The U.S. and the European Union failed to reach a new deal on sharing air-passenger data by Saturday's deadline, though officials said negotiations would continue, the Associated Press reports. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said the failure to agree wouldn't disrupt trans-Atlantic air travel. Chertoff said Saturday that he was sending EU representatives "an initial proposed agreement, which I think embodies what their fundamental requirements for data protection are so we can do what we need to protect our borders. If they're prepared to accept and sign, great. If we have to have additional talks, fine." European Commission spokesman Jonathan Todd said there would be a "legal vacuum" as of midnight.
