Peace Action is probably left wing. However, if a Republican administration can do this to a left wing organization, the next Democratic administration can be counted upon to do it to right wingers. Can you imagine a President Hillary Clinton NOT using this power?

In short, keeping a U.S. citizen off of airliners because of their political persuasion or because they might join a LEGAL demonstration is a VERY BAD IDEA, particularly when it can be done secretly, for reasons unexplained, and without recourse.

By the way, I am a strict constitutionlist, and somewhere to the right of Attila the Hun when it comes to enforcing our laws.

I agree with you, but it is very possible that the U.S. government had nothing to do with this except act as the authority that carried out the "protective" action. I could pick up the phone right now and have someone I don't like added to one of these "no fly" lists.

In short, this is the risk you run whenever you make a government agency responsible for the safety and protection of a certain group of people.

RE: Post #8

There is not enough info. The article is mostly about whining.

Exactly.
