Biometric Workaround

Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa - and the Niqab Too

The answer is so simple. The Saudis support the expression of Islam (especially extreme forms, like Wahabbi) world wide. Let them
pay for the worldwide deployment of biometric recognition. Retinal and hand print scan everyone, and put a portable, cellular weblinked
scanner in every police car, classroom, ticket window. Require photo id OR biometric scan match to enter, use credit cards, etc. That way,
its their choice.
