   This does seem to be well into hysteria territory. The fingerprinting
and photographing in particular seem offensive - checking existing records
is one thing, but making new records is another. And I would bet large
amounts of money that the people so recorded have no right to know what
happens to that information...

   Enh. Just one more reason for me not to visit the US again. Of course,
that's probably the reaction they're looking for from people from those
countries, too.

   Is "Syed" a title, or part of your name?
