Criticize the president and you're a terrorist

A decorated Korean War hero, Walter F. Murphy was on his way to a conference at Princeton University when a clerk told him that he was on the Terrorist Watch List. After being surprised by this, the clerk asked him if he had been to any peace marches lately, because "we ban a lot of people from flying because of that." No, he hadn't been to any peach marches, but in September 2006 he had given a public lecture highly critical of George Bush. He shared his experience at Balkinization.

Another terrifying example of how much freedom Americans are loosing.
