An American student who discovered he was included on the government’s no-fly list and was barred from a U.S.-bound flight from Costa Rica was reunited with family and friends after he flew to Mexico and then walked across the U.S.-Mexico border Thursday evening.

Kevin Iraniha, 27, was met at the San Ysidro crossing south of his home in San Diego by his father and two brothers as well as some supporters and reporters after a two-day delay that included FBI questioning and rerouting his trip through Mexico City and Tijuana.

"In 2010, he helped organize a peace protest to counter a planned Quran burning by anti-Muslim activists, according to the Ocean Bay Rag, a small publication in Southern California.
Iraniha spoke to the Union Tribune of San Diego after he was initially barred from his flight and questioned by the FBI about his religious beliefs and affiliations."

How did he leave the US?
Or is the "NoFly" list appled only on return?

I love it!
However, I am certain that had Dubya applied such a rule there would have been riots nationwide for weeks, if not months!

Ain't voting for the Manchurian Candidate anyway, in case anyone wonders. Even if he is the incumbent, and instituted this badly needed rule. I hope the new Republican president keeps this rule in January of 2013.
