Chertoff Says Fingerprint Data isn’t Personal

Full Story Here.

The US used to be the model for leading the world in terms of how to treat its citizens. Unfortunately, they’re leading still, but taking us all down a very different path. It used to be that any kind of personal data, be it your address or habits or fingerprints were sacrosant and untouchable. Today, it’s just another piece of necessary info to fight the war on terror.

What amazes me is how Americans have given up. It’s disheartening to all because they used to offer the world a reason to be optimistic.
