    But the sheeple, like kitty cats, like shiny new things!

    But look at the source (Homeland Security Policy Institute or some such at George Washington U) -- they're essentially admitting that their major constituency is B.S. :)

    TSA Motto:
    If at first you don't succeed, try try again.
    Rather, if at first you don't succeed in admitting how badly you've screwed up, double-double-down!

    From a movie in the 60's (western, but can't remember the title): If at first you don't succeed, fail, fail again.

    Those scanning guns would be awesome to use.

    I'm told by a reliable source that for around $10K one can buy an ID that will fool police computer checks. Apparently there is some redirect property that sends back a false okay. Such a document would almost certainly fool TSA as well.

    It would have to be a pretty bad fake to be noticed by a screener.

    That is easy. Tricking the new ID scanner poses another hurdle but I'm sure the hackers in China have it figured out already.

    Yeah but there are plenty of valid IDs that get challenged and "denied" because of TSA inablity to follow there own SOP and items on thier own website. I refuse to use my DL or any ID with sensitive information on it, as i have been the victim of identity theft and dont care to relive that nightmare ever again. I use my Federal ID because it doesnt have any sensitive data on it, yet meets the requirements. It has never been turned down but has been challenged by several idiot TDC who lost that challenege and were called out infront of there supervisor for not being able to do there job correctly.

    Pretty much, china or hackers have anything cracked before it hits mainstream. In Texas the checksum in the mag strip has already been cracked on the new DL, along with the holograms.
