No fly list?

Suspected terrorist Faisal Shahzad's boarding of a flight in New York on Monday exposes a security hole that the government has yet to close after spending seven years and half a billion dollars to fix the problem.

The Transportation Security Administration still leaves it to airlines to check the government's "no-fly list" to make sure no one barred from commercial airplanes is a passenger. That includes airlines from nations we know support or harbor terrorists. How could no one see this flaw in advance?
