Not true. There have been a number of articles published which detail that the
names of people protesting the war, who are detained or questioned by police,
are then passed on to law enforcement, specifically to those handling airline
transportation. The articles -- and if I have to go dig them up I can --
detail that on several occasions, people who'd protested and been detained,
without being arrested, were held for questioning at airports and detained,
often missing their flights as a result. (In one case, a group en route to
see their congressman had to reschedule because they were detained for exactly
this reason.)

How you can make these blanket statementa that NOTHING is going on, when the
facts say exactly the opposite, just astonish me.

Unless you actually have no interest in the facts, only in trolling for
arguments, which is starting to sound more and more like the case....
