I have examined the CAPPS program and the fake boarding pass generator in a longish post over on Cato@Liberty.

Michael Hampton of the enteraining and insightful HomelandStupidity.us quickly pointed me to the views of Congressman Ed Markey (D-MA), which are reflected in Ryan Singel’s post on 27B Stroke 6: Congressman Ed Markey Wants Security Researcher Arrested.
