Homeland Security? Government Resorts to Asking People if They’re Terrorists

Is this the Department of Homeland Security?  Or Keystone Kops?

The government is now apparently fighting terrorism via the honor system.  Because everybody knows, a suicidal jihadist’s best trait is honesty.  Seriously. I’d say anyone enrolled in a homeland security program should just drop out now. Their tactics continue to reach inconceivable levels.

A new form is being required by individuals wishing to renew their aircraft registration.  It is known as the Declaration Regarding Material Assistance/Non-Assistance to a Terrorist Organization (DMA). 

The title itself requires more brain cells to read than were used to develop the very questions it contains.

From Maggie Thurber:

A friend was renewing his Ohio aircraft registration and mentioned a form that he was required to fill out, affirming that he’s not a terrorist and hasn’t helped any designated terrorist organizations.

It’s known as the Declaration Regarding Material Assistance/Non-Assistance to a Terrorist Organization (DMA) form and it contains the following questions to which you’re supposed to check a yes or no box.

And here is the first question:

1. Are you a member of an organization on the U.S. Department of State Terrorist Exclusion List?

I wonder if they have ever had a documented instance in which somebody answered yes to this question.

Now, pick your jaw up off the floor and go read the rest…
