    These were in use last week as I passed through ATL, but it appeared that few people were using them, unlike GE, which was being well used as I passed through. I think this is a very good idea. I applaud the newly innovative habits of Homeland Security.

    So why did I pay for GE when this service is offered free of charge? :mad:

    All this does it reduce immigration officer reading time, if I understand, so the expedited luggage inspection and the assumption of correctness that we get from GE do not apply to the other techniques. I am not 100% certain, it is what i was told by a stay HS person when i asked the same question last week.
