In the section on excessive expense and lack of oversight of contractors they observe that 1.2 Billion USDollars have been spent on fingerprinting technology for US-VISIT. They they say that people are still overstaying their visas.
For a billion USDollars you could hire many investigators to expend shoe leather to work on overstaying visas.
To add insult to injury, RFID is proposed as a solution. Sigh...
The articles were fluff and no substance.
I expected better from Business Week!
That's because they didn't interview well known security expert <a href="http://geekz.co.uk/schneierfacts/">Bruce Schneier</a>
