UPS now requires photo ID for shipping packages

From an Associated press report:

UPS is now requiring photo identification from customers shipping packages at retail locations around the world, a month after explosives made it on to one of the company's planes.

The Atlanta-based package courier said Tuesday the move is part of an ongoing review to enhance security. The directive will apply at The UPS Store, Mail Boxes Etc. locations and other authorized shipping outlets.

There are places in America where one can vote without showing ID. In fact, in some places you can even vote as often as you want without showing ID.

Do the UPS decision makers think terrorists don't have ID's?

"Thank you sir - is that spelled Osama or is it Usama? Your Islamic Republic of Afghanistan Official Jihad Instructor photo ID card is a little hard to read"......

Profiling won't work either. Islamic terrorists will hire Caucasians to take their packages to UPS stores.

There is no easy answer.
