(See this page for live links quoted in notice below: http://epic.org/ ) -

"The Department of Homeland Security has suspended plans to expand US-VISIT, a vast and expensive system to track visitors to the United States. The news follows a government report (PDF) that found serious flaws in the system of databanks and biometric identification. An earlier EPIC Spotlight on Surveillance -"US VISIT Rolls Out the Unwelcome Mat" highlighted security and privacy problems with the system. More information at the EPIC US-VISIT page. (Dec. 15)"
A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."
--George Washington
