I don’t know why everyone jumped up on this. It’s old news, every few months or so, a report comes out that puts us at the bottom of that list. And, like everyone who doesn’t have millions in their bank account knows, it’s virtually impossible to get a visa anywhere for a respectable amount of time, and with a process that’s not like a murder investigation. So, please, spare us the “civilized face” lecture, and let us know when you stop censoring everything you uncivilized bunch of cronies to religious leaders.
As for the “new biometric data” thing, that only means one thing: MORE MONEY! =D We already pay hundreds of dollars to renew our flimsy passports for a few years (the most expensive I believe?) Adding RFID chips and doing the biometric analysis means only one thing: someone close to the General Security or one of the politicians/warlords will take the exclusive rights to that, charge us exorbitant amounts, and make millions for a passport that will remain equally useless and frustrating (unless you want to go to Iran, yaaay!)
