FBI drops case against British student

It appears that the FBI have dropped their case against the British citizen, and PhD student in the US (see here and here for the back story). However, whilst Chris Soghoian has had the case against him dropped, and had his computer property returned, the security issue that he highlighted still remains. Chris has written about it at length on his blog here the section titled "The Bad".

It's good to see that sanity prevailed on the matter of charges against Chris Soghoian, but it worrying that someone on the no-fly list can still quite easily get themselves on to a plane using this method.
