Summary:

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) admitted that it has (as of 2003) two lists of would-be travelers to whom heightened scrutiny applies: a "no-fly" list, and a list of selectees who are permitted to fly after undergoing "special security checks." The TSA acknowledged the multiple lists after the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California filed a request on behalf of two passengers.
