    Stupid government tricks:

    SASKATOON — Saskatoon’s Alistair Butt laughs when asked if he’s a security threat to Canada’s airline industry.

    “A 10-year-old a terrorist? What?” said an incredulous Butt, who learned he was on a “no-fly” list when he tried to fly from Ottawa to Toronto earlier this month.

    Alistair, his brother and mom had joined dad on a business trip to Ottawa, flying with no difficulty on June 6. But when the foursome checked in at the Air Canada counter in Ottawa for a flight to Toronto on June 8, they were told there was a security issue with 10-year-old Alistair. He was on a list, labelled as a person of interest, says Alistair’s dad, Usne Butt.

    At least the Canadian officials recognized that a 10-year-old HEK was an unlikely terrorist and let him board. I have no doubt that were he flying in the US, he’d be on his way to Guantanamo by now.
