It’s now official: This is White House which knows no shame when it comes to justifying its un-American police state.
from 21st Century Wire:
A U.S. District Judge, William Alsup (photo, left), has sided with the American people by ruling in favour of the US Constitution, saying that a Malaysian PhD student studying at Stanford University, Rahinah Ibrahim, should not have been put on a ‘No-Fly List’, and has ordered that the federal government clear up the mess it has created.
Alsup says that the US federal government has in fact violated the student’s legal rights by placing her on a secretive “no-fly” list with zero due process.
To avoid embarrassment, the Obama administration has ‘vigorously contested the case’, and demanded the trial be sealed for ‘national security reasons’. The federal government seems keen to avoid letting other victims gain any legal ground on this issue for fear of a tidal wave of lawsuits against the unconstitutional practice. Ibrahim’s case partly reveals how the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) conjures up its notorious ‘No-Fly’ lists – based on zero evidence that said targeted individuals pose any real threat to US national security.
