    The security chips are made in Europe and Indonisia, then shipped to Thailand to be attached to blank passport books and then shipped to the US for printing.

    I hate links to videos.

    Here's a better one:

    From: http://www.washingtontimes.com/article/20080327/NATION/119767500/1002

    I can get the basic info from a print link in about 20 seconds.

    On a video link, first, you sit through the commercial. Then, you can only get the information as fast as they feed it to you.

    Unless there's some interesting moving image in the link, video links are a total waste.

    It's actually a good point this rep makes, and hopefully won't become a partisan issue. Not only from the security standpoint but from the WTF standpoint.

    Of course, does anyone want to take a guess on how many American flags are made OUTSIDE America? Let me rephrase, does anyone have details on that?

    I prefer print links better as well, but CNN didn't have a print version of the story on their website and I was too lazy to check other papers for the story.
