Court: Passengers can challenge no-fly list

This would seem like common sense, given that not only is your ability to travel restricted with absolutely no due process whatsoever, but that there is legislation pending that would nullify your right to bear arms if you should find yourself on this list, again, without any due process whatsoever. But common sense is scarce in this Orwellian hell-hole. And even in what seems like a slam-dunk case against the government, the ruling was still 2-1.

    SF Gate -

    Critics of the government's secret no-fly list scored a potentially important victory Monday when a federal appeals court ruled that would-be passengers can ask a judge and jury to decide whether their inclusion on the list violates their rights.

Actually, for the record, there are over 1.2 million people on the TSA no fly list.
