NPR Reports: Flying Without ID Is A Tricky Business

Posted by DWT

Are you flying for the holidays this year? Are you bringing id with you? What happens if you don't? NPR reporter Martin Kaste reports on the practical implications of TSA's secret law which affects millions of travelers every day. The text of the federal law that requires travelers to show identification is a secret -- you cannot read it because the federal government insists the law itself is "Sensitive Security Information." TSA's spokesperson refused to even be interviewed on tape discussing this point with NPR. John Gilmore and others are asking the United States Supreme Court to hear his legal challenge to the secrecy aspect of this law.
