Reader comment on item: The System "Worked Really Very, Very Smoothly" in Detroit?
in response to reader comment: No Fly List!!! - You have to be joking!

Hello Petrina, what you are describing is alarming to me. It looks like the no-fly list is some sort of propaganda in order to give the false impression that terrorists are spotted and that this results in real-life restrictions. Do you have any idea as to why your husband is part of the no-fly list ? Do you think it is possible that elderly people end up on the no-fly list in order to demonstrate that at least somebody is on there, expecting those people would not fly that much at all and would probably never ring a bell ? As I understand that overriding the no-fly list in the case of your husband never had any subsequent effects for him. Do you have the courage to bring this story to a broader audience, television maybe ?
