Benevolent Misanthrope: They can put some schmuck's name on a no-fly list for daring to question TSA Security Theatre, but they can't load the list with the names and numbers of stolen passports?Way to go, guys.
CleanAndPure: I'm against this database.If stolen passports are outlawed only outlaws will have stolen passports.
UberDave: Asian chick passport checker is kind of nerd-hot...
mbillips: What a GREAT idea; take the enormous number of false hits on the no-fly list and add a few thousand more. Prevent anyone who has ever had their passport stolen from flying without going through a cavity search. Make us all miss our flights while you fark with them.What fracking difference does it make if a "terrorist" gets on a plane with a false passport? Unless they sneak a bomb or a gun on the plane, there's really not that much damage they can do if the cockpit door stays locked the way it should.Apparently, fake passports are a standard way to travel from the Third to the First world; it's about beating the immigration barriers.
gingerjet: I will thank you very much. Passports ... or really any identification ... does absolutely nothing to prevent airplane hijackings or any type of terrorism.
