US Launches RFID Passports

Awesome! This should help with keeping borders under control and it should cut down on illegal immigration too.

I wonder how long it'll be before they manage to forge/replicate these too. Although, civil libertarians may have problems with it's 'Big Brother' like approach; it will surely benefit authorities by assisting relevent departments process visas and hopefully keep the bad guys out...Especially in this current climate of craziness

Well even with all the warning from security people here we are. This is about the worst idea I can think of, now terrorist can build devices that just sit and wait for a certain passport to go by and then detonate and explosive. I maybe over reacting, but it seems to me that we already have enough terrorism threats.
