    "TSA determined the airline had mistakenly indicated the child was on a government watch list."

    How could the "airline" have thought an 18 month old girl was a threat?

    Maybe they thought she was a mastermind behind a new "Jihad for Infants" training plan?

    Where are critical thinking skills?  Were they ever here to begin with.....

      When bureaucrats are involved there ARE NO BRAINS that go with that.!!! they only do what their rules say, common sense is a foreign concept to politicians and bureaucrats.

    There were no bureacrats involved....

    The article clearly says that the airline thought this. No evidence has shown the child was actually on the No-Fly list.

    This is private industry "regulating" itself..

    Forget the TSA brain surgeons,
    To me, the more disturbing trend in this article is thate JetBlue Airways is CLEARLY ageist.
    They are anti-child.
    I call upon all parents to boycott JetBlue immediately.

    Throwing a child off the airplane for having a tantrum?
    (Who among us has not had a tantrum on an airplane?)

    Throwing a family off the airplane for having too many children?
    I fully expect an outcry from the religious Right on this one.
    We can never have too many children!!

    That definitely seems to be a possibility.
