I'm sorry to join this thread, but I am wondering what Martin's
deception was.  As I understand it, he used a form of identification
which was issued by an organization which is not recognized as the
governing body of any place in particular.  The identification showed
his real name and real likeness [0].  He did not misrepresent any
information in either obtaining the document or in presenting it to
those who requested he identify himself.  So, to the best of my
reckoning, this is all really an issue dealing with the fact that there
exist organizations which we would not trust to do certain things.  I
think this is hardly an earth-shattering revelation.


[0] At least as far as those things have been previously known.
