How We Are Fighting the War on Terrorism
IDs and the illusion of security

How We Are Losing Our Privacy-(a brief snippet)
"First, verifying that someone has a photo ID is a completely useless security measure. All the Sept. 11 terrorists had photo IDs. Some of the IDs were real. Some were fake. Some were real IDs in fake names, bought from a crooked DMV employee in Virginia for $1,000 each. Fake driver's licenses for all 50 states, good enough to fool anyone who isn't paying close attention, are available on the Internet. Or if you don't want to buy IDs online, just ask any teenager where to get a fake ID."

Hidden_Variable,

What are you saying, I've been "insecure" since my Indiana driver's license expired in May of 1993?  Oh my god, and to think I wasn't even aware of the danger!  Where can I get some ID?
NOT!!!    :)   :P   :D   :lol:
