CBS acquired US 'No-fly' list--

Post by Hilary the Touched » Fri Oct 06, 2006 2:50 pm

--and it's the kind of effective measure we've come to expect from the Bush administration:

"A US no-fly list used to try to prevent terror attacks includes the names of 14 of the long-dead 11 September hijackers, US news channel CBS reports.

"Jailed former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein also features on the list...
[if he's flying into the U.S., we've got serious problems]

"It includes names shared by thousands of people, such as Gary Smith, John Williams ["Put down the film score and back away slowly!!"] and Robert Johnson.

Men with these names tell of being routinely detained and interrogated whilst trying to board flights in the US, in interviews in the CBS programme due to be aired on Sunday.

A former FBI agent, Jack Cloonan, told CBS that the list had been compiled quickly."
