About Damned Time

I saw this headline and almost stood up and cheered right in my office.

Chertoff wants more data on air travelers
Homeland Security chief says itineraries, payment details should be shared

As I read through the article I had some mixed emotions. Hmmm they wanna know how I paid for my ticket? Ok - if that helps I'll not say anything. Won't like it, but then again we've all been screaming for profiling - so you take the good with the bad.

I fully understand needing my full itenerary. No issue with that at all.

Is it enough? No. Will it stop anything? Probably not. Does it throw yet another road block up? I think so.

All in all - it's a start. Sorta. But it's something.......

Honestly, I could care less if they want to know how I paid for my ticket. But what will the terrorists do? Pay cash at the last minute? Probably not if the past is any indication. Or maybe they're looking for common card #s? I just hope that they know how to use the info wisely.....
