    Ohio Six Year Old Turns Up On Terror Watch List

    AOL News
    AOL News
    (June 26) The father of a 6-year-old Ohio girl who turned up on the U.S. government's terror watch list says the worst thing his daughter has ever done is probably been mean to her sister.

    But Santhosh Thomas, a doctor from Westlake, Ohio, says he's sure that's not enough to land his 6-year-old Alyssa on the no-fly list of suspected terrorists. "She may have threatened her sister, but I don't think that constitutes Homeland Security triggers," he told CNN.

    An airline ticket agent informed the family of their predicament when they embarked on recent trip from Cleveland to Minneapolis. "They said, 'Well, she's on the list.' We're like, okay, what's the story? What do we have to do to get off the list? This isn't exactly the list we want to be on," Thomas said.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    Thats flippin rediculous

    Thankfully the airline was smart enough to let her fly. Typically, the government bureaucrats were too stupid to remove her.

    Aye ya ya! Wonder who reviews these lists, I can see a name coming up, or an alias, but you would think a DOB would go along side of the name, or an age range. Nothing should be ruled out until investigated and sure, it is possible for a 6 year old to commit a terrorist act, but the planning stage would come from the parents or some other adult group who directs the child. Glad the TSA used common sense in this case, occupying parents came up clean and let them go on with their trip.

    Reread the article "Federal authorities won"t comment ...." She'll be on that list until sanity returns to the Federal Government, which means she'll be on the list until sanity returns to the Fed Govt.

    Just so i'm with you and understand what you're saying clearly-


    So you're saying a couple years after hell freezes over for the fourth time, and at least ten years after the apocolypse, world war III, and the rapture have all happened?

    That no-flight list has always struck me as dumb, just something make the public feel safer about flying.

    It's dumb not only because so many people have the same name, but also I think if I were a terrorist I'd invest in a fake identity if I had any kind of history - If illegal immigrants can buy other identities, I'm sure any terrorist a notch above the underwear bomber could figure it out. I guess I don't have any confidence that the list has more than a name and country of residence in most cases.

    I guess the airlines and Feds would look pretty dumb, though, if they overlooked that info and someone using a known name tried to bomb a plane - like they did recently anyway, even WITH a match in the list.
