Commentary: The friendly skies where freedom dies

The federal "no-fly" list is a purgatory to which one can be consigned in perpetuity with neither due process nor judicial review, because one's name happened to be similar to that of some bad person.

Bush's War on Civil Rights, this is in some ways the most profound.
