I think it would make spotting fake passports very easy.As no one could improperly enter the US without it being issued a proper passport by our goverment.Making such chips would be hard for a third world country, where most if not all terrorists are from.Anyway, it seems impractical that terrorists would even bother as it would waste already dwindling funds.

They are going to use RFID. So you should be able to wrap foil around your passport when you do not need it to avoid snoopers.
