the trouble with no-fly

joi mentions that capps ii is back – and as someone who seems to spend most of is life at 30, 000 feet, it make sense that he pay attention to these things. this time around it’s called “secure flight” because america. is. safer.

i don’t get to fly very much, but i’m sure i’m on a list somewhere.

so for a perspective on the issue, i direct your attention to bruce.

U.S. ‘No-Fly’ List Curtails Liberties [bruce schneier, newsday, august 25, 2004]

It also has been a complete failure, and has not been responsible for a single terrorist arrest anywhere.
