Unsafe At Any Altitude

I just got off the phone with Joe Tentro, one of the journalists who broke the TSA no-fly list story, which will air later this week on 60 Minutes.

Joe and Susan Tentro are investigative journalists who received the TSA's list "over the transom" from an unidentified source. The TSA won't won't comment on the authenticity of the Tantro's list, but they have authenticated the document through multiple sources in the intelligence community.

I'll post more about the interview later. I've also got a piece coming out in AlterNet on the no-fly list.

In the meantime, I wanted to recommend the Tentros' book about the failures of airline security before and after 9/11, Unsafe At Any Altitude.

Well, Robert Johnson DID sell his soul to the devil, down at the crossroads at midnight. You'd want to keep tabs on a guy like that.

And John Williams, also on the list, has arguably committed acts of musical terrorism against innocent movie patrons.
