She was associated with the radical Muslim cleric, Al Error. Almost as bad as Al Qaeda.

And she wants us to let her fly? bin there, done that.

Yeah, but is it a Muslim clerical error?

Officially change your name to Christine Pelosi, same as Nancy Pelosi's daughter. Either it'll slip thru unnoticed and you can fly again or Nancy Pelosi will start getting an earful from her kid and check into it. Either way, things will happen.

Money is all that matters. So, did anyone make a prophet?

Gyrfalcon: Talondel: Gyrfalcon: Did you get your GED from SkinnyHead's School of Law? It's got nothing to do with constitutionality--you don't have constitutional rights in an airport, and haven't had them since longer than I've been alive.

What law school did you fail out of? There are reduced 4th Amendment protections at airports. But your other rights, such as the rights to due process, are still applicable. https://www.aclu.org/national-security/federal-court-sides-aclu-no-fl y -list-lawsuit

Hush, I'm making fun of a troll.

I got meta-trolled.

Yes, well, Homeland Security and all such.

The important thing we all remember is that the TSA has kept us safe from terrorists for over a decade, and errors like these are just part of the human experience.  As are people being placed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and never brought to trial because of the possibility they may go free as a result.  Praise be to the son of the assistant of Saint Reagan!

On the other hand, clerical errors made by people employed by private insurance companies that result in hardship for people trying to sign up for Obamacare is proof positive that Barry Sorrytoro 0bummer must be impeached immediately on charges of gross incompetence.

m00: Why are so many people on this thread supporting a terrorist who was on the no-fly list?

m00: Once again, if you don't want to land on the no-fly list don't be a terrorist. "clerical error" just means the FBI agent only has like 99% proof. It's like when a criminal is charged by a prosecutor and "let off the hook" by a liberal jury. Doesn't mean he's not guilty, just means the jury didn't do its job and come back with a conviction. Same thing.

Folks really need to put you on ignore. Not 'cause you're trolling but because you're so damned bad at it. If that's all you can come up with, don't even bother.

I suspect the clerical error was hers. She chose the wrong clerics.

These human errors are simply that, human errors.  I had a friend who wanted to take a flight to Pittsburg.  When he got to the ticket counter he erroneously requested:  "Two pickets to titsburg".

No different from when I was having dinner with my wife when I meant to ask her to "pass me the potatoes" I erroneously said:  "You ruined my farking life".

Kygz: No fly or extra security?

If she was truely not allowed to fly for ten years for no reason, there should be some recourse.

Freedom isn't free.
