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
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.
