    Our tax dollars at work:

    Millions of Britons who visit the United States are to have their fingerprints stored on the FBI database alongside those of criminals, in a move that has outraged civil rights groups.

    The Observer has established that under new plans to combat terrorism, the US government will demand that visitors have all 10 fingers scanned when they enter the country. The information will be shared with intelligence agencies, including the FBI, with no restrictions on their international use.

    And, of course, other countries will retaliate against American citizens traveling abroad. Thus, our fingerprints will will end up being stored in police databases all around the globe, including here in the US.

    We all get to be Brandon Mayfield now.
