Did Chicago Lose Olympic Bid Due To US Passport Control?

I suppose I agree, and at least you would get refused entry before you actually fly, rather than getting there and being told to "do one"...

Did Chicago Lose Olympic Bid Due To US Passport Control?

gclarkey Re:Why not fly into Canada or Ireland first (1040 comments)

And get precleared through US immigration while still within a civilised country? No joking: if the Security Theatre misidentifies me as a notorious enemy of Freedemocracy, I'd rather prove my innocence to just about anyone except US "Homeland Security".

I live in Ireland and travel to the US regularly with work. The US Immigration guys in Shannon and Dublin are still complete dicks, although they are admittedly less of a pain in the ass than the immigration in Newark, but those are the only three US immigration I've been through. To be fair though, if you want a tough stance on the people you want to let into your country, complete dicks are just the kind of people to do that job well.
