“Sarah Zapolsky was checking in for a flight to Italy when she discovered that her 9-month-old son’s name was on the United States’ ‘no fly’ list of suspected terrorists.
“‘We pointed down to the stroller, and he sat there and gurgled,’ Zapolsky said, recalling the July incident at Dulles International Airport outside Washington, D.C. ‘The desk agent started laughing…She couldn’t print us out a boarding pass because he’s on the no-fly list.’
“Zapolsky, who did not want her son’s name made public, said she was initially amused by the mix-up. ‘But when I found out you can’t actually get off the list, I started to get a bit annoyed.’
“She isn’t alone.”
