should be horsewhipped in the town square.
Rahinah Ibrahim, a Malaysian architect with a doctorate from Stanford,
knows from personal experience that they have a compelling point.
Ibrahim is the only person since the 9/11 attacks to file a court
challenge that ultimately removed her name from the watch lists. It took
her almost a decade to prevail in court and even that victory has
proved pyrrhic for her. While a federal judge agreed that her inclusion
on the no-fly list was groundless, she remains unable to obtain a visa
that would allow her to visit the United States even to attend academic
conferences. A close look at her case by ProPublica provides dramatic
evidence of what was argued this month in Washington: It is indeed
remarkably easy to get on the list and nearly impossible to get off.
