Homeland Security Slaps 6-Year-Old Girl On No Fly List

The Department of Homeland Security’s anti-terrorist airplane protection services are so ironclad that even a sneaky 6-year-old Ohio girl couldn’t make it through the dragnet. The feds were on to her and stuck her on the No Fly List. Possibly because she planned on asking for extra peanuts, getting up and going potty several times during a flight and maybe even kicking the seat in front of her.

The girl was not the one in the picture, but may have seemed just as deadly.

The UPI reports:

“We were, like, puzzled,” said her father. “I’m like, well, she’s kinda 6 years old and this is not something that should be typical.

Once the parents reported the snafu, a Transportation Security Administration told the parents the girl is OK to fly. For now.
