    Maybe they're on the no fly list, but not under their new identities, not that the unconstitutional no-fly list is effective anyway ...

    Washington Post: Watchdog: Justice Dept. didn’t provide names of some terrorists in witness protection program (May 16 2013)

    The Justice Department failed to provide the names of some terrorists in the witness protection program to the center that maintains the government’s watch list used to keep dangerous people off airline flights, the department’s inspector general said in a report Thursday.

    As a result of the department’s failure to properly share information, some in the witness protection program who were on the “no-fly” list were allowed to travel on commercial flights, the federal watchdog said.


    “It was possible for known or suspected terrorists to fly on commercial airplanes in or over the United States and evade one of the government’s primary means of identifying and tracking terrorists’ movements and actions,” the report said.
