Weekly Standard writer and Fox News regular Stephen Hayes has learned he is officially on the Department of Homeland Security's terrorist watch list.
Just informed I'm on the @DHSgov terrorist watch list. Explains why I have been subject to extra screening each of my recent trips.— Stephen Hayes (@stephenfhayes) September 23, 2014
DHS does not make it easy to file a redress, apparently the process doesn't work at all.
Hayes tweeted that he suspects it was his travel that raised a flag, as he took a one-way flight to Turkey and returned from Athens.
This is not the first time that there have been people placed on the watch list in error.
