TSA Program Allows Federal Air Marshalls To Target Everyone

Just when you thought the airport had already gone full Orwellian. Federal Air Marshalls are now following unsuspecting average U.S. citizens regardless of whether they are suspected of a crime or on a terrorist watch list. Monitoring their behavior under yet another domestic surveillance program.

The Boston Globe reports “The previously undisclosed program, “Quiet Skies” relies on 15 rules to screen passengers, according to a May agency bulletin, and the criteria appear broad: “rules may target” people whose travel patterns or behaviors match those of known or suspected terrorists, or people “possibly affiliated” with someone on a watch list.”
