The TSC admits that people on the no fly list are considered terrorists ::gasp:: who would have thought. I haven’t even flown since 9-11, so I don’t know if Special Agent Mikey stuck me on the list for sure. Knowing him and his personality, he at least tried.
The case involves 15 plaintiffs who are all U.S. citizens and Muslims. They argue the government refuses to explain why they were put on the list. It’s a point the TSC does not dispute. An official told Fox News that telling people they’re on the list would “compromise security.”
“If terrorists knew they were on the list, they would change their identity or turn to an operative who may not be on the list to conduct an attack,” the TSC official said.
Tarhuni says he was eventually interviewed for several hours by FBI agents and kept in Tunis for a month before being allowed to fly home. He remains on the no-fly list and still doesn’t know why
Anyone could call the EFF bee eye and say anything they want about you. It’s more “effective” for h8rs if you look or are ethnically or religiously ‘of interest’.
After 9-11 and before all the airport nudie scanners were installed, one of my brothers was nominated for the search all luggage in the back room (they left a paper in each bag saying they searched it all by hand!), show extra ID, and step aside for questioning list. They unrolled his socks and left them that way.
He finally filed a TRIP form and was taken off the harassment list about a year ago.
He used to attend protests against Bush & bombs and he would travel to Eastern Europe quite a bit. Maybe they thought he was a spy. I dunno. He would not make a good spy. He can’t keep a secret and he’s pretty transparent when he’s up to something.
