The True Purpose of the No Fly List


The no-fly list is not really about safety. An expanded list could be used to trigger extra searching. People on the list are not considered so dangerous they can’t travel by train or go to a supermarket, or buy explosives or guns. People get on the list by writing an angry letter to the editor or posting on a website opposing the Iraq war, or some other government policy. The true purpose of the list is to intimidate people into keeping their criticisms of crooked politicians, the military and corporations to themselves.
