    me too

    It just seems as though the authorities consider it to be a success when they have someone on the watch list, every time anything happens it's always "well they WERE on the watch list" as if that's all that's needed :/

    He was banned from entering the UK. Surely we would have let US authorities know about this?

    Undoubtedly!

    And just as surely, our US authorities would have lost the information somewhere in the interminable, unmanageable bureaucracy that is the US Federal government!

    It's just like playing the old whispering game when you were a kid. Take 20 kids, whisper a phrase into the first one's ear, then have them whisper it to the next one. And so on till it's gone through all 20. Then ask the last one to tell what they heard. It usually bears no relation to the actual starting phrase!

    US government is the same concept. Just on a MUCH larger scale!

    So who's in charge of Homeland Security and why isn't their head on the chopping block yet? Seriously, every single person entering the US has to fill in all that stupid ESTA stuff and have stupid chipped passports and all sorts of other stuff that takes time to put together and costs us money and why? So it can all be bloody ignored by the looks of things.

    A valid question for which I don't have an answer!

    Too bad Douglas Adams isn't around anymore. I'm sure he could make sense of it all.

    Janet Napolitano - you're apparently not fired but everyone outside of the US wants to know why you let that man on to a plane?

    Knowing that you *cant* go to the toilet for an hour means you are going to be absolutely bursting to go by the time the plane lands - there will be a stampede for the loo's!

    So would I be unable to take my iPhone or Nintendo DS in my hand luggage?

    I don't think I've seen anything that would indicate that Claire. As far as I know, both of those would still be permitted in your carry on.

    However, I could be wrong!
