Monkey is 95% human partial match
"We've only been given one piece of evidence that the collection of PNR has avoided any terrorist outrage," he said. And even then that suspected terrorist wasn't caught: he was turned away at the US border - his partial fingerprints were later found on the steering wheel of a car bomb that killed 132 people in Iraq."
Doubtful, if he was a terrorist suspect they'd have let him in, monitored him and arrested him saving 132 lives. The partial match thing sounds like post justification, i.e. you catch a rhesus monkey and say it's DNA is 95% match for the terrorists! We saved you from the terrorist monkey! This is why we don't let politicians convict people.
The solution is for the USA to share it's list of suspected terrorist, and for the Europeans to investigate it themselves and convince themselves to their standards that the person is a terrorist. Europe is not in the USA jurisdiction, it's in the European one, and the person has to be stopped before flying, so he would be in European jurisdiction!
i.e. do their duty and protect our sovereign rights as independent nation states rather than make us a satellite state to the USA without the right to vote.
If USA won't share their suspect list, then it's likely a bad list stuffed full of false names, like their 'no fly list'.
Lets be realistic about it, USA is our ally, not our mother and we compete with them on everything. It's not in our interests to see European internal data handed to the USA. It's not in our interests to let USA political appointees make unchallengeable decision that can negatively impact us. It's not in our interests to hand enforcement to them.
We don't have a say in how they behave, we have no voting rights there.
If someone has a similar name to a known terrorist, the solution isn't a do not fly list, it's to investigate and prosecute. The problem with 'Do not fly lists', is they're created by political appointees and are full of shaved terrorist monkeys.
