A short note on airline security

I'm taking a flight today and decided to double-check on ID requirements. I saw an interesting section on ID requirements for children aged 15-17 traveling alone:
  • Driver's License
  • Passport
  • Credit card
  • School ID
  • Company ID
  • Library card
  • Birth Certificate
  • Social Security card
  • Organization ID (such as athletic club, etc.)
  • Proof of auto insurance in passenger's name
As we've seen in Israel and elsewhere, terrorists can be below 18 years old.

How hard is it to forge a library card or student ID?
