Secure Flight Passenger Records & Government Demands

Government to Demand Passenger Records for "Secure Flight"
EFF: EFFector Vol. 17, No. 35, September 24, 2004

Iwas sitting in the Oakland, California airport at 5:48am on September 11, 2001 when the world turned upside down and everything changed for all of us.

But the travel industry has changed more than any other single business and the Federal Government has clamped down on air travel like no one would ever be able to understand before those awful events.

I've endured my share of travel inconveniences since then, but put up with most of them to continue to enjoy the priviledge of free travel. But I will never agree with the kind of foolishness that can ground Senator Ted Kennedy or keep anyone off of their flight when they are clearly not a risk.

CAPPS II is exactly that kind of foolishness and I encourage everyone to resist their personal travel details being stored, analyzed and scrutinized the way this bad law is designed to do.

I urge everyone to take action to stop the foolishness of CAPPS II and now "SecureFlight". Visit and take action against the erosion of our right to free travel.
