CNN Reporter Put On Watch List After Criticizing TSA

Having your name placed on a Government Watch List because you may not agree with a particular policy is alarming. 

Let's say you oppose health care reform.  To voice your opposition you buy a bumper sticker and display the sticker on the rear of your car.  That exercise of your first amendment rights should not subject you to the government adding your name to a watch list of extremists. 

How do we know that the TSA is not keeping a list of all the people who opt-out of the body scanners or the ritual of invasive pat-downs that victims have described as acts of sexual assault. 

Prison Planet reported: 'As we highlighted earlier this week, a reported TSA memo was circulated at the height of last month’s opt out controversy which “officially addresses those who are opposed to, or engaged in the disruption of the implementation of the enhanced airport screening procedures as ‘domestic extremists’.”
