Welcome to Bush's America

From the Hoffmania blog:
I mean, look - I take my passport whether I travel domestically or otherwise. It just saves me a lot of hassle. But is this really going to keep us from "people who want to come in and hurt us"? Amazing how we nailed the Millennium Bomber at the Canadian border without this rule.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans will need passports to re-enter the United States from Canada, Mexico, Panama and Bermuda by 2008, part of a tightening of U.S. border controls in an era of terrorist threat, three administration officials said Tuesday. Similarly, Canadians will also have to present a passport to enter the United States, the officials said. Asked about the changes in an Associated Press interview, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said the United States had to take every precaution to screen out "people who want to come in to hurt us." Rice also said the changes were made after consultation with Mexico, Canada and others in the Western Hemisphere.
