Security of U.S. Passports Called Into Question

Security of U.S. Passports Called Into Question
By MATTHEW MOSK, MATTHEW COLE, BRIAN ROSS and JOHN SOLOMON
CENTER FOR PUBLIC INTEGRITY AND ABC NEWS | June 14, 2010

"The U.S. government agency that prints passports has for years failed to resolve persistent concerns about the security risks involved in outsourcing production to foreign factories, a joint investigation by ABC News and the Center for Public Integrity has found."
[...]
"Despite repeated assurances they would move production to the U.S., a key government contractor has continued to assemble an electronic component of the nation's new, more sophisticated passport in Thailand."

Brilliant! Because Thailand is such a calm and stable nation right now.

Every time I thinks that stupidity has reached an all-time high, something like this comes along to prove me wrong. At the rate things are going we are going to need an IQ scale with negative numbers.
