Can Barack Get a Loan?

Absurdity. Predictable, but still absurd:
A would-be auto buyer described a "revolving-door nightmare" after a sales agent spotted a similar name on a federal most-wanted list. A former California prison employee wrote of being mistaken for a Colombian drug criminal. A Northern Californian sued after his home loan was held up when a credit agency thought he was Saddam Hussein's son.

Their stories - with much information blacked out, and other records withheld - are among documents obtained by a San Francisco legal organization seeking greater public accountability in the operation of a Treasury Department watch list of terrorist suspects and drug traffickers.
Makes you feel comfortable about the government's ability to protect us all...Doesn't it?
