The ACLU claims 900,000 names in February. And even then the FBI and the government acknowledge that it's too big and in no small part inaccurate. It's not taken as canon that anyone on the terrorist watch list is a terrorist intent on blowing up the plane they're boarding.segmentation fault wrote:considering the terrorist watch list is in the millions, i wouldnt be surprised if they are wasting vast amounts resources to do that. dont be so trusting.
One person, who has a history of being antagonistic to the TSA (and probably was none too kind during that incident) was held up enough to miss a flight.us citizens are being held at airports because of macbook airs. i mean yeah the worst is they miss their flight, but still, security isnt as smart as you think it is.
Though I'm thinking of making a "Kip Hawley is an idiot" bag, though even so when you read the TSA's explanation for why they allow three-ounce bottles in a one-quart bag it's actually quite reasonable: It's easy to remember and easy to follow without causing an extreme inconvenience while still allowing a simple search procedure.
Also, not sure if it's stale but this link includes a Know What To Expect.
