Babies Caught Up in 'No-Fly' Confusion

WASHINGTON - Infants have been stopped from boarding planes at airports throughout the U.S. because their names are the same as or similar to those of possible terrorists on the government's "no-fly list."

It sounds like a joke, but it's not funny to parents who miss flights while scrambling to have babies' passports and other documents faxed.


It appears that some parents are being inconvenienced during their air travel. If you want my opinion, that's a small price to pay for a safer United States and the protection of its citizens. We cannot stand idly by and do nothing to stop the technology that allows terrorists to pose as innocent, unassuming infants. Imagine the havoc that would have swept the country had these "babies" been allowed to board airplanes with little to no adult supervision. The results could have been catastrophic.

    But can you ever REALLY be sure what your kids are up to?

    You jest, I'm sure. But do you realize how easy it is for a terrorist to pose as an infant? A goofy pink pando, a diaper, a short lacy dress with no real shape, a pacifier, a blanket in the hand, and "presto!", instant infant. Even 6-foot, 2-inch, 320- lb. tackle for the New England Patriots can fool anyone with this disguise. And can you imagine what they can hide in that diaper?
