Someone with good writing skills has managed to completely paint over the
basic facts about *who* will actually be chosen . According to the INS
website:

http://w-
ww.ins.usdoj.gov/graphics/lawenfor/specialreg/index.htm#when


"Who Must Register?

Nonimmigrants who are nationals or citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan and
Syria

Nonimmigrants who have been designated by the State Department at American
embassies or consulates

Any other nonimmigrant identified by INS officers at airports, seaports and
land ports of entry in accordance with 8 CFR 264.1(f)(2). "


OK, guess who will be identified at the consulates or by INS officers - it
won't really be nationals from all countries as the US embassy is at pains
to point out. Not that I think that's necessarily bad - you have to focus in
on groups that have historically caused problems and hope that the next
major terrorist isn't a British grandmother entering on a visa waiver.

BTW, the exit regualations started yesterday; the entry ones were brought
into force on 9/11/02.
