ACLU critical of yet another security measure

The ACLU which always has criticism and no solutions that help, is critical of yet another measure aimed at preventing terrorists from flying in airplanes. It is actually fresh criticism of an existing measure - the no fly list - because sometimes infants get caught up in the list and the group is delayed.

On the infant issue, the TSA has already taken steps to prevent this by issuing a policy that if the name matches a child no delay is necessary. It is the airlines that are still stopping them, likely due to a real fear of being sued if there is some mistake and a terrorist gets through. I guess it is the price you pay for naming your kid Muhammed Atta.

On the list itself, there is no known alternative that is less invasive of privacy rights than the no-fly list. Without the list there is no hope of filtering out the bad guys from flying on planes. Yet again we have a policy designed to catch terrorists and make the US safer, but the ACLU resists. I think every name of an ACLU member should be on the list as they have proven themselves to be traitors against the US at every turn.

    I found it ironic that Ted Kennedy appeared on the no-fly list, since he's probably done more damage to this country than any other individual.

    Actually, I think the airlines slipped him on the list to save on fuel costs
