Two Women Sue Over Secretive FBI 'No Fly' List

Two women who publish a magazine critical of the U.S. “war on terrorism” sued the government on Tuesday saying that they and hundreds of others have been placed on an FBI “no fly” list that resulted in police detaining them for questioning at airports. Rebecca Gordon and Jan Adams, co-publishers of War Times, were stopped at San Francisco’s airport last August and detained for about 20 minutes by police before they were allowed to board their flight. Their left-wing publication takes a critical look at the U.S. “war on terrorism.” “What is disconcerting about this is the lack of any published criteria,” Adams, 55, said in an interview. “It is a remarkable bureaucratic mess.” Adams said that she and Gordon, 50, were arrested several times in the 1980s for civil disobedience but did not understand why they would be on a “no fly” list today. Since the August 2002 incident they have been able to fly without incident. Full Story
