This is fake news to make US look silly.
No Embassy could be that simple minded
Probably not fake.
Problems in Canada as well.
No-fly list flags more Canadian toddlers as security risks
Children still in diapers flagged as potential airline security threats.
The parents of two Canadian-born boys — both younger than three — say their children have been flagged on the "no-fly list" as potential security risks since they were newborns.
They told CBC News about their children's experiences after seeing the story of a Markham, Ont., boy whose name triggered a security alert when checking in for a flight at Toronto's Pearson airport.
Zamir Khan of London, Ont. says his son Sebastian was first flagged on the no-fly list when he was six weeks old, and it has happened every time he flies with the boy, now 21 months old.
"We were told our son's name is on a governmental-watch list, and a phone call has to be placed to verify that he is not the actual threat that is listed," Khan told CBC News in a phone interview.
He said it typically takes 15 to 20 minutes for the airline to receive the all-clear that the boy is not a security risk, even though the child is sometimes asleep in a car seat.
"It's a bit humiliating," Khan said. "Primarily we worry that this is only going to get worse for him as he gets older."
Khudija Vawda of Toronto said the security delay first happened with her son, Naseer Muhammad Ali, when he was 10 weeks old. He's now about to turn three.
"It makes me mad," Vawda told CBC News by phone. "I'm born in Canada, my husband's born in Canada, my son's born in Canada, and just because of the name he can be profiled like that, it just makes me angry."
Syed Adam Ahmed, 6, of Markham, Ont. was travelling with his father to see the Montreal Canadiens play the Boston Bruins in the NHL Winter Classic on New Year's Day. His father tweeted a photo of the computer screen showing the boy had been flagged on the "Deemed High Profile" list. Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale has promised to review the case.
