It seems like every new idea that comes along is being touted as a good idea by somebody, after 9/11. However it is my understanding that all of the hijackers involved in the attacks were in the United States legally. What good would this card have done, anyway?

Thanks for the info. I really don't like the idea myself. This sounds like one step closer to the "chip implant" that was discussed in another thread. I'm sure after 9/11 and the increased emphasis on fighting terrorism, the move toward something like this in the US will gain some steam. But I hope it doesn't happen while I'm around.

In the US, in the meantime, the temporary public approval of a national ID card is waning:

It's interesting to see how some subjects were the hot topics for a bit and are now going back to normal .... it's just the laws that were voted that will not go away as easily.
