Oh for Pete's sake ... Common sense is severely lacking
on this planet, isn't it? I wonder how she got put on the
list to begin with. Ted Kennedy was also on the list.
THAT I can understand ... just kidding! (

As the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' secretary for education, Sister
McPhee oversees Catholic education in the United States, from nursery
school through post-graduate. Her job includes working with the
Department of Education, speaking frequently at conferences and
scrutinizing religious textbooks to clear them with the teachings of the

For nine months in 2003 and 2004, Sister McPhee also took on the task of
clearing her name from the government's no-fly list, an endeavor that
proved fruitless until she called on a higher power, the White House.

McPhee is not the first high-profile individual to be caught by the
government's watch lists. Sen. Edward Kennedy and former presidential
candidate John Anderson both found that their names matched names on
the list, but like McPhee, were able to resolve the problem by contacting
powerful officials.

But, thanks to documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act,
her ordeal offers one of the most illuminating illustrations of the failures of
the airport screening system that has come to light since 9/11. The
Electronic Privacy Information Center plans to release the results of the
FOIA request this week, Wired News has learned, handing the latest black

Nuns are dangerous...flying nuns are even worse...they affect all flight plans.

anyway...she wasn't born a nun, so this could be related to soemthing in her past ? Only her knows what she did ... or it could have just been a mistake...that happens too.

I had my social security number mixed with a girl from Morroco, so when i went to geta job I had "false papers" with the ID of a "possible terrorist", taking the risk of "profiling".

So i got some weird looks, didnt get the job and eventually the problem was fixed.

If her name is on a watch list, then what can anyone do? Nothing. Maybe the feds can give watch list waivers/passes, but this would also present a security problem.
