You may remember that the US recently changed its passport rules so that people traveling to Canada and the Caribbean now require a passport. Well, it turns out that the backlog of passport applications is so great that the US will relax those rules and permit Americans to travel to these countries without a passport. I know what you’re thinking: weren’t the rules put in place because it was an very important anti-terrorism strategy? And if it was an important anti-terrorism strategy, why are they relaxing it because they can’t process paperwork? Will the country be less safe while the passport backlog is fixed? And if not, why have the rule in the first place? Am I asking too many questions? Probably.
