In a precedent-setting case, Rahinah Ibrahim has become the first person to successfully challenge the U.S. government's secretive No-Fly List.
Ibrahim was a student at Stanford in 2005 when she was detained at San Francisco Airport while en route to Kona, Hawaii as part of a Ph.D. program in architecture and design. She was detained, interrogated, then released after two hours, but subsequently ended up on the No-Fly List . . . for 7 years.
As the video report below highlights, after a tenacious legal battle Ibrahim has finally been removed from the list and some of the details have been exposed.
It was an FBI agent's clerical error made by checking the wrong box that resulted in the ensuing upheaval Ibrahim endured. Worse, it has been revealed that the U.S. government knew early on that it was a mistake and tried to conceal the embarrassing error. In fact, the entire case has been conducted in secret until now when Rahinah Ibrahim has finally had her name cleared of any accusations over possible links to terrorism.

Good, they work for us. They should be held accountable to the public. There should be a way to find out why you are on a no fly list and steps to take to fight that. We turn into the U.S.S.R. or what? Every single time they try to keep you down with trumped up crap, give it back ten fold. If enough people do so, things will CHANGE without the false promise Obama gave. Keep letting it go and they will take the rest of your rights away. You have to fight for freedom and always had to do so.
