Are we ALL prisoners now?
I saw this linked through DIGG:

"October 26, 2006

Forget no-fly lists. If Uncle Sam gets its way, beginning on Jan. 14,
2007, we'll all be on no-fly lists, unless the government gives us
permission to leave-or re-enter-the United States.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (HSA) has proposed that all
airlines, cruise lines-even fishing boats-be required to obtain
clearance for each passenger they propose taking into or out of the
United States.

It doesn't matter if you have a U.S. Passport - a "travel document"
that now, absent a court order to the contrary, gives you a virtually
unqualified right to enter or leave the United States, any time you
want. When the DHS system comes into effect next January, if the
agency says "no" to a clearance request, or doesn't answer the
request at all, you won't be permitted to enter-or leave-the United

Does anyone know anything else about this or are we really joining the ranks of Saddam's Iraq, the Nazis and the Soviets?

Went to the link and copied and pasted the docket number into the proper field in the advanced search option hit the submit and received a no results response.

Has this proposed regulation been withdrawn?
