Politics: Dumbest - Idea - EVER!
To frighten terrorists, let's do spontaneous attacks against our own civillians! We'll pick random, public places, surround them, and force everyone inside to produce identification or be arrested!
So, we'll pick, like, such obvious targets as... uh... Hotels! And banks! Yeah, that's exactly where terrorists wouls attack! Not non-public places like water resivoirs or power stations or government buildings or Disney World, or anything like that.
After all, it only stands to reason that terror cells wouldn't actually have any identification, as if they were U.S. citizens or anything like that, right? Nah, that's crazy.
