Infants suspected as terrorists?

From the Associated Press...

Ingrid Sanden's 1-year-old daughter was stopped in Phoenix before boarding a flight home to Washington at Thanksgiving.

"I completely understand the war on terrorism, and I completely understand people wanting to be safe when they fly," Sanden said. "But focusing the target a little bit is probably a better use of resources."

The government's lists of people who are either barred from flying or require extra scrutiny before being allowed to board airplanes grew markedly since the Sept. 11 attacks. Critics including the American Civil Liberties Union say the government doesn't provide enough information about the people on the lists, so innocent passengers can be caught up in the security sweep if they happen to have the same name as someone on the lists.

Here's an idea, maybe if the idiots at the ACLU would quit suing the government at the drop of a hat for trying to protect people, they'd have a little more time to do things a little more efficiently. By the way, which organization fought against stricter hiring criteria for airport screeners? Oh, yeah -- the ACLU. Buncha whiners.
