The Taliban is believed to have seized the U.S. military’s biometric devices storing iris scans, fingerprints and biographical data. The technology, known as the Handheld Interagency Identity Detection Equipment, was intended to gather biometric data of 25 million people, 80% of the Afghan population. “We processed thousands of locals a day, had to ID, sweep for suicide vests, weapons, intel gathering, etcetera,” a U.S. military contractor explained. “(HIIDE) was used as a biometric ID tool to help ID locals working for the coalition.”
