FBI Thinks About Putting A Few Of Those Who Attacked Capitol on No-fly List
The FBI has actually openly acknowledged for the very first time that it is considering preventing those who attacked the United States Capitol last week from boarding airplanes by including them to the federal no-fly list.
FBI Washington Field Office Assistant Director in Charge Steven D’Antuono stated Tuesday that the bureau would think about including rioters to the no-fly list, which is kept by the bureau and administered by the Transportation Security Administration.
” As for the no-fly list, we take a look at all tools and methods that we potentially can utilize within the FBI and that’s something we are actively looking at,” D’Antuono stated in response to a question from CNN’s Evan Pérez.
On Tuesday, congressional leaders heightened calls to keep rioters off aircrafts after they stated they stayed mostly in the dark from the agencies that supervise the list.
” We can not enable these very same insurrectionists to get on a plane and trigger more violence, and more damage,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said throughout a Tuesday afternoon news conference.
The leading Democrat and Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee likewise informed TSA Administrator David Pekoske in a letter they were worried “little is being done to interrupt the travel of terrorists who just attacked the seat of the U.S. Federal government and desire to do so again.”

The no-fly list is stemmed from the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Database, understood as the TSDB or terrorist watch list. The FBI and other intelligence services can choose individuals for the list or the selectee list, which designates an individual as the topic of extra airport security screening.
Highly redacted federal reports recommend the overall watchlist is bigger than variety of individuals on the no-fly and selectee lists. Much of how the lists work, including what qualifies an individual for addition and the number of individuals are listed, is categorized as delicate security information.
When an individual checks in for a flight, his/her reservation details is inspected against the TSA’s Secure Flight database, that includes identifying whether the traveler is on the no-fly list or selectee list.
The Secure Flight system then offers the airline company the information needed to generate a boarding pass or deny the traveler– consisting of, for instance, if a traveler receives the TSA PreCheck accelerated screening program. It likewise checks if a guest’s identity is on the “do not board list” kept by the US Centers for Disease Control and Avoidance and TSA. This list is utilized to prevent the spread of communicable illness.
The no-fly list began in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, prior to the production of TSA, when the FBI offered the Federal Air travel Administration a list of 125 people who ought to not be allowed on airplanes.
