This video clip [3:22] introduces us to two U.S. Muslims recently marooned. Ayman Latiff, a disabled military veteran, is stuck in Egypt, told he is on a "no fly list." Back home, Adama Bah explains no one will tell folks unlucky enough to be banned what they did to get listed or how to get off. She wistfully tries to convey what is like to be unable to board an airplane for work or leisure.
In response to a developing pattern of such strandings, the Muslim civil rights group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, has issued a "travel advisory."
The ACLU is representing 10 plaintiffs who have had this experience -- and all of us who might somehow run afoul of arbitrary government decisions.
