5. The Pres. of Bolivia is considered a highly subversive socialist.
What, you think they'd take him off just because he got elected President? Nope!

2. And what was the response from the person in charge at the FBI?
"Uhm...er...uhhh...no idea, haven't looked into that so I have no idea."

D A Y U M

Just dam!

How can the FBI be that fucked up!? Oh yeah, two words - Dick Cheney.

4. From what I understand about the size, we could all be on it and
it would still have thousands of other names. Sounds like about 150,000 BUT I would bet ten times that number.

7. A friend of mine is on it.
They won't tell him why. He has an Irish name - fairly common - so figures it has something to do with N. Ireland. But holy cow, there must be thousands of people with his name. Are they all on the list? And how do you get off? No one will say.

14. yep,yep, and you can't
my husband is in the same boat as your friend, it ain't worth your life to have a common name, and yeah they are "all" on it, every time my husbsnd is cleared because it is so obvious he is not the person by this name who is wanted there is some comment made that leads us to believe he is not even close to the physical description of the bad guy who used this name

we were given a form to fill out to complain that he has been placed on the list but we were told it wouldn't do any good (very apologetically)

customs and tsa think this is as stupid and shitty as you think it is, yes, we experience serious delays every time we travel because of this, but their job is being screwed up EVERY SINGLE DAY because of this crap

don't give your kid a common english/irish name is my advice, too late for hubby tho

I can't figure out what your OP is trying to say. Something about the No Fly List?

12. Anyone whose name is Bob Johnson is on it
CBS got the list last March, none of the alleged plotters arrested in England were one it. Though, they also reported that major terra suspects aren't on it because the government doesn't want the list to fall into the wrong hands and have the bad guys tipped off. :wtf:

15. It has nothing to do with a name
It's only one small factor in itself is irrelevant, there is more information gathered and compiled to determine who gets placed on these list(s).

And this is all spin to make like it's the same name game.
