billion to bankroll wars in Iraq and Afghanistan itstop budget analyst on Tuesday projected billion in deficits for the next decade even without the costs of war and President Bushs Social Security plan Three senior adminis tration officials said the White House would request billion for the wars or a bit more soon after Bush submits his budget for fis cal 2006 to lawmakers Feb 7 The officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because the program has not yet been announced said billion of it would be for military costs with the rest including funds to train and equip Iraqi and Afghan forces aid the new Palestinian leader ship build an embassy in Baghdad and help victims of warfare in Sudans Dar fur province Congress approved billion for the wars last summer Using figures compiled by the Congres sional Research Service which prepares reports for lawmakers the new est request would push the totals provided for the con flicts and worldwide efforts against terrorism past billion That includes billion already provided for rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan In a written statement Bush said the money would support troops and help the United States stand with the Iraqi people and against the terrorists trying desperately to block democracy and the advance of human Amid the White Houses preparations the Con gressional Budget Office predicted the government will accumulate another billion in deficits over the next decade The projection for the years 2006 through 2015 is almost twothirds smaller than what congressional budget analysts predicted last fall But the drop is

pedestri ans and million vehicles We need to have a compre hensive system and thats what our pilot test will Currently foreign visitors at the 50 busiest land border crossings in 10 states are fingerprinted as part of the governments new screening system The system called modem aufowoffcs 9894242 Dedicated to Quality Since 1992 USVISIT scans photographs of the visitors face and index fingers into a computer which are matched with fed eral agencies criminal data bases With RFID technology peo ple or objects are identified automatically and swiftly That allows vehicles outfit ted with the technology to zip through toll plazas without stopping but wont at the bor der People and vehicles still will have to stop but if their identifying data produce no red flags they will get just a cursory check rather than lengthy questioning The chip with the identify ing information would be placed in a document such as the State Departmentissued border crossing cards for those who regularly make short trips across the Mexi can border The chip is attached to an antenna that transmits a sig nal to a handheld or stationary reader which converts the radio waves from the RFID tag into a code that links to identifying biometrical infor mation in a computer data base read by border agents The technology with some variations has been in use for years in systems for toll collection equipment tracking merchandise tags and pet identification Unlike bar codes the RFID chip doesnt need to be oriented before a scanner for read ing but need only be within transmission range
