I am agreeing with you too. If this is redundant for identity purpoes, and its useless for counter-terrorist operations, then what other possible use is it other than to control us?
As an aside, did you hear about the talk show host that claimed all republican/conservative talk show hosts want obama to be taken out and that all Americans are afraid of socialism - that they are worried their country won’t be the USA anymore, that it will be entirely socialized? I can’t find a link to an article now, but what a strange thing to say. Of course we’re worried that our country will be socialized - anybody that’s been paying attention sees that’s exactly where we’re headed. I’m sure someone will post an article soon enough though.
