    I suppose it would be too much for the government to explain it's decision?

    "If he is a US Citizen how did he obtain citizenship while his family was overseas - it makes no sense unless he has multiple wives which is not uncommon to his religion."

    Actually it makes plenty of sense. I'm a dual citizen and I have exactly one wife.

    The dude was in the no fly list and he knew this would happen but he left anyways. If he is a US Citizen how did he obtain citizenship while his family was overseas - it makes no sense unless he has multiple wives which is not uncommon to his religion.

    Interesting we have terrorist investigations in 50 states. England has over 1,000 ongoing investigations. Poland has none. Oh yes they do not admit refugees from Syria.

    The dude is a U.S. Citizen. There shouldn't be a problem because he has a U.S. Passport. Unless they can prove he has terrorist ties, they are violating his civil rights.

    This story highlights the central problem with the no fly list: there is no due process. In other words, the government can put you on without any justification, they do not have to prove to anyone that you deserve to be on the list, there is no way to find out why you are on the list, and there is no way to prove you are innocent and get off the list. Our founding fathers specifically did not want the government to do these types of things when they wrote the fifth ammendment to the constitution.
