If Homeland security is getting it wrong for the innocent, how many are they getting wrong who are indeed a threat?

This is in reference to a 6 yr old little girl on the no fly list... the question I posted was asked on the San Francisco Examiner's website.

This scares me more... the fact that if they mistake the innocent how many non innocents are getting away or going to get away with not being on the no fly list!?

  • I agree... they spend too much time worrying about things that they should let go and too little time on things they should worry more about. :(

  • Janet Napolitano couldn't find her butt with both hands and a mirror. She isn't fighting a war on terror. She is managing the contingency of another "man made disaster". She puts forth edicts like "the president isn't golfing; he is clearing his mind, or it isn't the Gulf oil spill; it is the BP caused disaster" and on and on. If she could stop playing the semantics game and actually work within the world of reality the rest of us reside in, we might get somewhere.

  • That 6 yr old is but the latest...

    4yr old from 2006: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10725741/
    7yr old from 2007: http://www.wtsp.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=59706
    5yr old from 2008: http://boingboing.net/2008/01/10/another-fiveyearold.html
    8yr old from Jan 2010: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/14/nyregion/14watchlist.html

    I'm sure there are more...

    On Jan 15 2010 the TSA posted to their official blog that "There are no children on the No Fly or Selectee lists."



    Yet that 6yr old girls family was told they have no intention of removing her from the list.

  • Jesse, I couldn't agree more about Napolitano. I can't stand her. She is an idiot!
