This is just so hard to believe, even though many people have issued warnings about the possibility for several years.
John Aravosis at AmericaBlog tells about how one man, Chris Paget, using technology easily accessible to anyone, "drove around San Francisco reading RFID tags [the new computer chips] from passports, driver licenses, and other identity documents. In just 20 minutes, he found and cloned the passports of two very unaware US citizens."
Yikes! Watch and weep.
