bruce schneier ueber die sicherheits-manie. alles mit IDs abzusichern: “How We Are Fighting the War on Terrorism” (via spitting image)
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.
