No-Fly List Doubles In Past Year
The United States’ "No-Fly" list has more than doubled in the last year, according to new figures released to the Associated Press. The jump comes after the Obama administration announced last October that it is closer than ever to defeating Al Qaeda.
A year ago roughly 10,000 known or suspected terrorists were placed on the list, according to the AP. This year that figure rose to 21,000, with roughly 500 American names on the list. Most individuals identified on the list are from other countries.
