Woman On a “No Fly” List Grounded

princess 2How’s this for irony, a Malaysian woman who is suing the US government for putting her  on a “no-fly” list can’t testify because they won’t allow her to fly to America because she is on a “no fly” list. The woman, who was a Stanford Uni scholar , was whacked on the list in 2005 after FBI interviewed her about the Malaysian terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah.

Constitutional Rights Be Damned!

My bad?

Oh boy, the US Government is getting sued by the American Civil Liberties Union over their friggin “no fly list”. The ACLU is claiming it violates terrorists people’s constitutional rights because the people on the list aren’t informed about why the hell they are on it in the first place. Hmm, maybe they have a point.

Dear Mr Bin Laden,

We regret to inform you that due to unforeseen circumstances we have had no option but to place you on our no fly list. We are terribly sorry for the inconvenience but if you would like to take it up with one of our supervisors feel free to ring our toll free number 1800youaintflyingnowheretoday. Thank you again for choosing not to fly with us, we hope you have a pleasant day.

Kindest Regards,
US Government

Psst It’s kinda like the chicken or the egg. Allow suspected terrorists to fly, blow up plane, passengers constitutional rights violated. Don’t allow suspected terrorists to fly,their constitutional rights are violated. Hmm, a right old quandary!
