Airline blacklist version whatever

| Security: Airport
DHS is revamping the no-fly/watchlist yet again. I haven't read this yet, so no useful comments, other than my general suspicion of name-based passenger screening.

One interesting point, though:

TSA is also proposing that each boarding pass will have a unique, scannable mark, which could be authenticated by a TSA employee with a wireless device at the head of the screening line. While the TSA hasn't chosen what technologies to use for this system, the move starts to eliminate a long-standing hole in the current system. That hole allows a watch listed person to avoid being banned from flying or encountering extra screening by modifying a print-at-home boarding pass.

Well, extra screening, perhaps, but not banned from flying, since you can just make up a fake name and then say you forgot your ID.
