Because freedom can't protect itself
The ACLU should be ashamed to take an un American position
While obviously not an acceptable solution, could Knaeble or Latif fly to Canada or Mexico and continue by ground transportation, or do foreign carriers enforce the no fly list even on non-US bound flights?
Probably not. Washburn made it through (after being turned back on a flight to Mexico), but, as the complaint explains, Knaeble flew to Mexico and was sent back to Colombia. We have another client who tried to fly to Canada but was not permitted to board.
You're so right. Goodness! I hope you are a person in a position of considerable power!
