What's In a Name?

Host Liane Hansen talks with Jack Hermansen, whose company, Language Analysis Systems, has created a tool that helps law-enforcement officials and corporations track difficult-to-spell foreign names. The Name Reference Library was used by Immigration and Naturalization Service agents to reconstruct the movements of the 9/11 hijackers in Florida.
