He was on a terrorist watch list!!!

I've been watching news reports on full-body scans and other high tech (expensive) devices to prevent terrorists from blowing up airplanes.

Hey, I've got an idea. How about if we start by not letting people into the country who are on terrorist watch lists! It is not like we're talking about the average Joe who appeared out of the blue with no jihadist connections. HE WAS ON A TERRORIST WATCH LIST!

How hard can it be in this age of computerization to flag someone on a terrorist watch list and keep them off the plane?

OK, so he didn't make it to the no-fly list; but entering America is not some kind of inalienable right. Why would we let anyone in this country whom we even remotely suspect to be sympathetic our enemies?
