The Profile of a Terrorist


It's like staring into the face of evil

6-year-old Ohio girl, Alyssa Thomas, placed on Homeland Security's terror watch list



by Joe Tacopino
Daily News Writer

A new front in the war on terror may have opened in the first grade.

A family in Ohio learned that their six-year-old daughter is on Homeland Securitys terror watch list when they attempted to make a flight from Cleveland to Minneapolis.

A ticket agent informed Santhosh Thomas that his daughter Alyssa was on the list.

"She may have threatened her sister," Thomas told CNN. "But I don't think that constitutes Homeland Security triggers."

Alyssa was still allowed to fly, but had to go through extra security.

After the family contacted the Department of Homeland Security, Alyssa received a letter that would neither confirm nor deny any information they have about her or someone else with her name.

Officials maintained the importance of the list.

"The watch lists are an important layer of security to prevent individuals with known or suspected ties to terrorism from flying," a spokesman for the Transportation Security Administration told Fox News.

2. They spotted her because of that scary smile. And, those dangerous dimples.

4. It's a brave new world isn't it...
I have known 3 people on the "watch list". All for no reason at all. All had to jump through unreal hoops to get their names off the list and I know one guy who lost his job because he was required to travel and couldn't.
