Privacy International conducted an exhaustive study in 2004 into the relationship between National ID Cards and terrorism.
"Of the 25 countries that have been most adversely affected by terrorism since 1986, eighty per cent have national identity cards, one third of which incorporate biometrics. This research was unable to uncover any instance where the presence of an identity card system in those countries was seen as a significant deterrent to terrorist activities."Chris McClelland, 15 years ago.
