    The sooner we can get the pathetic agency shut down, the better.

    Courthouse News Service: TSA Can Withhold Watch List Inclusion Process

    An American who says he was busted on a bogus marijuana charge during a trip to Egypt won't be able to get his hands on TSA records that might reveal how he made it onto the agency's watch list, a federal judge ruled.

    U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan ruled that the Department of Homeland Security and its Transportation Security Administration won't have to give up the information under exemption three of the Freedom of Information Act, which allows the government to withhold information protected by federal statute.


    So basically when it comes to watch lists, this American Stasi can screw you over left & right & you have no recourse.

    Hey, this is old news. I knew this when I go put on the NFL back in 2004.
