Secret U.S. "No-Fly" List Completely Unmonitored

'The government has no idea how many air travelers are being subjected to delays and missed flights because of confusion over security watchlists, according to interviews and internal Transportation Security Administration documents. ...The internal documents were obtained via the Freedom of Information Act by the American Civil Liberties Union, which is trying to persuade a federal judge to order the government to disclose who is on the watchlists, how people get on them and how somebody can get off them. Citing national security, the TSA has refused to answer these questions, which the ACLU posed in an effort to learn whether passengers are being placed on watchlists because of their political beliefs.'
