Keith and I are at odds over the implications of DNA testing, but now the US military has become involved. It is another level of biometrics, the tracking of individuals, which the article then goes on to talk about, and how it could compromise CIA agents. I’m not in the CIA, in case you hadn’t figured that out, but perhaps remaining anonymous, at least through DNA, isn’t a bad idea?

The memo provides little details on how genetic profiles could endanger security, other than noting that potential “inaccuracies” in health information could pose a risk to military personnel, who are required to report medical issues. Most of the health reports provided by DNA companies typically pertain to medical risks, though, such as a predisposition to cancer, rather than diagnosing a condition.
