Errors and mistakes are expected to be made when humans are in charge. It is our nature, and it's one ONE 8 year old boy. IF there were a multitide of rug rats on the no fly list, then we would have more to talk about.

I'm glad that the govt. takes it serious and that there is no discrimination. I'm glad that kids and white people are also being considered terrorists. You seen those training videos of kids in Afghanistan and Pakistan being trained to be martyrs, this method of putting an 8 year old kid on the watch list makes me sleep better.
