[QUOTE=mobrockers2;35904177]Yes, never heard of americans distrusting babies since Vietnam..[/QUOTE] Yeah, well I was clarifying his...comparison.
Terrorists win. No, really!!! It's just this kind of paranoid stupidity is what they want to influence.
OMG SHE JUST KID Did everyone forget a few days ago they found gun parts in a childs toy. I know is is stupid but the whole FUCK THE US stuff is annoying as hell.

As ridiculous as this may seem, there's nothing else that could've been done, they can't help it if a couple decides to name their child after a suspected terrorist (knowingly or otherwise). If the name's on a no-fly list then they're under direct orders to not allow anyone with that name onto a plane, this would happen in any country, with any security agency.
TSA needs to straight up just fuck off.
Meh, I wouldn't blame the TSA agent personally. They aren't allowed to let someone on the no-fly list pass under any circumstances. There should just be a better way of screening people once their name is brought up to make sure they're not a threat.

The no fly list needs a reworking, mainly for cases where multiple people have the same name. I remember a story about a teenager from Canada was going to the US. The only problem was, he had the same name as someone on the no fly list (it was his first time on a plane, or travelling to the US), and then his family had to cancel their trip because of it
[QUOTE=mobrockers2;35904177]Yes, never heard of americans distrusting babies since Vietnam..[/QUOTE] I was just saying that if terrorists are desperate enough to commit suicide for their cause, then their kids aren't out of the question either. Just because she's a kid doesn't mean she is 100% safe no matter what.

This emphasizes the problem that government agents are forced to act without thinking. I'm not saying they should automatically acquit someone whose name appears on the no-fly list, but there should at least be some system in place for them to question or verify the information.
And this is why I love living in Canada

[QUOTE=mobrockers2;35905839]So you're saying it was racism?[/QUOTE] Wh- no?
fuckin TSA acting like god damn robots, not using any sort of reasoning in their bullshit.
Y'know, if terrorists [i]really[/i] wanted to bring our airline system to a screeching halt they could just recruit some guy with a name like "John."
But they could have hollowed her out and filled her with plastic explosive!!!!1 whoever controls air transport security in the US seems to think the only way for a plane to fly safely is if it has no passengers
Is it just me, or does it seem that the TSA does more harm than good? I know the media capitalizes on fuck ups but you'd think that it'd be a big ass headline saying "THE TSA FINALLY GOT SOMEBODY!"
[QUOTE]The family was kept off the plane for 30 minutes before being allowed back on. Surprisingly, their 18-month old daughter was not considered a terror threat at the end of the investigation (though the TSA are denying that it was an investigation.)[/QUOTE] Pointless news, it was a mistake and TSA are in their right to look into what's up. Better to check the identity than let it go and have another plane hijacking\fall from the sky. What if the baby and the no-fly person were both boarding the same plane?
[QUOTE=Aman VII;35901577]That little bitch was planning on bringing the plane down, thank god they caught her. god bless america.[/QUOTE] They let them back on the plane. You should know by now, after the last thread about the weapon parts in stuffed animals, when they DO find something, they let it go on through
[QUOTE=ThePinkPanzer;35905341]OMG SHE JUST KID Did everyone forget a few days ago they found gun parts in a childs toy. I know is is stupid but the whole FUCK THE US stuff is annoying as hell.[/QUOTE] The gun parts were found using conventional baggage screening techniques that have been used since forever; not the no-fly list. If anything, cases like that only further prove that the added security measures aren't making us any safer than we were 20 years ago.
