Added: I am reposting this item. The reason is to state that already in Washington-Dulles, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago O’Hare, Houston, San Francisco, Orlando and Miami airports foreign passengers are required to “hand over” not only the fingerprints of their index fingers but all ten. The procedure will start on Detroit and New York JFK shortly. Right, 10 fingers is only for identification purposes eh?
The US is trying to enter into bi-lateral agreements with east-European states to get even more data than negotiated for the EU. Brussels is not amused.
Speaking of…. The toy boys now want to have fingerprints of foreigners coming into Europe too: we want the same goodies as the US. (shaking my head).
