Toddler pulled off airplane for being on TSA no-fly list
A toddler, Riyanna, was pulled off a JetBlue flight after her boarding pass was flagged as being on the TSA’s ‘No-Fly List’. The 18-month old, whose parents are both of Middle Eastern descent (and whose mother wears a head-scarf), was asked to get off the flight (along with her parents), and ended up being held and questioned for 30 minutes before being released.
The family was eventually cleared and allowed to fly, but refused and left the airport.
This just goes to show that our country’s security apparatus is working flawlessly, and won’t even let terrorists disguised as 18-month-olds compromise the safety of airline passengers. Just because there was a false alarm this time, it doesn’t mean the next toddler won’t be an al Qaeda operative.
