Important UPDATE: Chertoff Passport Rule Waiver Even Worse

Yesterday, I wrote about worse-than-useless Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff’s announcement in Detroit that he would poke a giant loophole in the new passport requirements for entering the U.S. I wrote that he would .
But it’s even worse than I’d earlier diagnosed. While most press reports inaccurately reported that he’d waive the passport requirement for those under 15, the truth is far worse.
In fact, Chertoff a/k/a “Mr. Burns” is waiving the passport requirement FOR EIGHTEEEN YEAR OLDS!!!! No joke. AND, it gets even worse. Chertoff says he wants to waive the requirement EVEN FOR THOSE OLDER THAN 18!!!!
Here’s the scoop:

Michael Chertoff: Doing His Best to Speed Up America’s Death

Under a policy change, people under 15 could re-enter the United States with a certified copy of their birth certificate. People from 16 to 18 traveling with sports teams and school groups, church or cultural groups and supervised by adults also will be allowed to re-enter with a birth certificate. . . .
Chertoff also said that border travelers older than 18 might be able to use some sort of pass instead of a passport.
“We’re working with the State Department to come up some type of pass card that would be less expensive,” Chertoff said.

Unbelievable. Why do we even have this law if Chertoff is going to gut it in its entirety? I mean, after all, there will never be any 18-and-under Muslim-terrorists-in-training on “sports teams and school groups, church or cultural groups and supervised by adults.” Right?
G-d help this weak, appeasing nation.

We are rapidly approaching Sept. 10, 2001.
I thought this administration was committed to making this country less suseptible to terrorism. This latest idiocy, combined with encouragement of illegal alien border-crossers and kowtowing to Islamo-facist front groups, like Cair, make me seriously doubt that “commitment.”
God, I wish Ronald Reagan were here……

It ain’t Chertoff, it’s BUSH. He has killed us conservatives for at least twenty years. Only chance we have is if the Dems totally screw up, which the way they are going now is a distinct possibility. But to sit around wishing ill of the other party is not a pastime that is productive or suited to winning. We have to shrug off this horrible president and his terrible appointments and work to elect honest attractive conservatives. I’d start with Liz Huddy, but there are others. Isn’t Heather Locklear right wing? And Lindsay Lohan is a total righty. Let’s get to work,

Why doesn’t the “Talking Skull” just come out and trash the policy altogether.
I thought Clinton was bad being the duplicitous scum that he is…Bush is competing for the title.
I hope this is it with the Bush family and politics – remember, politicians in the Bush family go way back to his grandfather.
As Jesse Jerkson once said; “Stay out the Bushes.” For once, I think I’ll take his advice.

School groups… like a bunch of 20 year old Hezbollah soldiers travelling with documents saying they’re 17 year old students atthe Sword of Jihad Madrassa.

Chertoff looks more and more like Mr. Burns everyday. What is his caloric intake daily? 50? Half a twix (make that ‘twit’) bar? Bush has appointed so many awful and incompetent department heads, it is truly dismaying.
