Summary:

While it was expanding the no-fly list, the Transportation Security Administration was also busy carving out a second list of people who were allowed to fly, but would be screened extra closely on their way to the gates. The government initially denied this "selectee list" existed, but the Electronic Privacy Information Center eventually learned of the list's existence in a Freedom of Information Act request.
