US Builds Iraqi Biometric Database

Under the guise of security, the Iraqi people are being cataloged into a US database. First, I want to make it clear that I do not necessarily oppose this move in that it's possible that it will be used properly to target terrorist while leaving innocent people alone. As with all the various privacy concerns here, though, the problem is in what else they plan to do with the data. And let's face it, the US governement has a sad, sick, history of abusing our data and privacy.
